My Internet Service Provider has again upped my cost and I would like to hear what others might be doing to avoid being gouged.
I just checked the cost of Unlimited Phone plans and for almost the same price I pay each month for Internet only, the wife and I could switch our Moto phones to a +55 unlimited plan. So how well does a phone hotspot do for Internet Access at home? We cut the cable years ago and signed up with Ting to save money and have been saving a lot over the years. Today, with the new price increase our cost for Internet and phones is back to over $100 monthly.
Even with two phones I understand we should not expect the 200 GB we usually use each month. We thought we were giving up a lot when we cut the cable. I am willing to expect less if it means saving $50 or so each month on Phones and Internet.
We signed up for Disney+ but are giving up on that. We simply cannot afford the cost of streaming the content. Even experimented with "casting" from phone and tablet to our TV. Don't see why we can't do that via apps from a phone and give up on our cable modem Internet access?
The saddest part would be leaving Ting. Been very happy with Ting from the start. But when the only cable Internet company in town starts charging $100 and more, I have to think about other ways to afford Internet access.
I would like to know if others have been successful in lowering their costs?
