if your internet use is only for pleasure and not business related you may want to spend the $35 to increase your cellphone plan to unlimited

use the internet thru your cellphone

bluetooth a table if needed

if you are able to completely disconnect from TWC for over a month then they may consider you a 'new' customer and give you the discounted/lower rate they give to 'new' customers

spectrum eliminated some of the 'start-over' features on some of the channels without notice

they moved some channels around without notice

they have very limited options to select from for packages

they seem to have eliminated a large number of programs that you could view a few days after the program aired

twc / spectrum has changed the guide format

if you like the previous style just go into settings and adjust the size to the previous version

would most likely depend on which programs you like to watch the most and which company has the better price

you can always change to a different company if you feel their service does not fit your needs

if you have more than one tv in your home just try out one of those companies for a 30 day period while still keeping your current tv service - ask the new company for a reduced price during the 30 trial period

connnect the new service to another tv and see if the service meets your requirements

if you do not like the new service you will still have your current tv service to use as a back-up

once you find the tv service that meets your needs then cancel your current tv service or stay with them

the people we have spoken to that have these services say they are about the same

others have cancelled their tv service and use netflix, amazon tv , apple tv ... and get their 'tv service' thru their internet service

if you only need tv service (no internet or phone) then another option is to try a tv antenna and that way you will not need to pay a monthly fee

we have friends that have a seasonal cottage and they connect to the neighbors for the short period they are there and they share the costs

the neighbors live their year around
