Thinking about coming back to Dish..a question about ISP's..
Posted 09 January 2012 - 02:03 PM
I was a Dish sub for 8 years, back in the late 90's early 2000's. I switched to cable because the expense of having internet through them, and the cost of Dish didnt make sense. It was cheaper to bundle from the cable company....until now.
I know I would qualify as a new customer, so all the new deals are very enticing. My question to you is this: what are you doing for internet service? Paying the cable company too (would be $50 extra in my area)? DSL (would be $40 in my area)? An aircard through a cell company? Any other options?

Bundle prices only shave a little bit off of internet pricing and dish is cheaper than anyone else so I save that and then some.

As far as streaming goes, I do very little now, although I occasionally pull up YouTube on my tv to entertain my 4 year old. So I'd rather not handcuff myself into something too slow...
