I pay for all them the same company, Romtelecom, so for 3 TV , 2 Internet connections, and two landlines, pay about 50 euros, pay more or less in comparison with you? Even if we did not need fixed phone, must hold him to that connection Internet phone is because staying in an isolated area where there is cable. However the connection is very good, and quite fast and not too spades internet, maybe when it's very cold, but very rarely. Sometimes I have problems with the satellite antenna from the TV, when is strong wind. But i think that all deserve money what i pay.

I am beginning to really consider cutting costs. I plan to get rid of my television service and just use my internet to watch TV. Also I want to purchase a Magic Jack which is a phone run on electricity that costs only $20 yearly.

I can not choose to use only the Internet, is required to get the full package, TV, Internet, fixed phone, because I don t have another option, the city may choose only the Internet, that is cable there, only Romtelecom has access here, maybe in the future, i can choice, if other company will come in this place.

We don't pay for our TV it is free view through a digital receiver but we do have to pay a yearly license to receive TV signals in the UK which I resent as no other country does and a lot of our TV is not even from England. The broadband and phone cost about 30 GBP I think per month which sounds like lots and probably is. For that we get the modem thing and the thing that connects to the TV(even though the channels on it are free) and the telephone which also connects to the modem).

I pay around US $80 a month for cable internet and TV. That's more than I want to pay, but all the promotions have run out and I can't find any discounts right now. I have to have the internet to work so can't cut back there. I am rethinking my cable TV, though. The only thing I would miss is watching football or baseball. I don't watch them all the time, but when I want to... I want to.

Is strange, When you contract with a subscription and a TV and telephone are a lot of promotions, after doing subscription, and you take them all back, step by step, that is more expensive every month and one year subscription should you or two, depends ... so any promotion is just a marketing lie. this is

Promotions only last for a limited time and they tell you that, so I'm not really complaining about that. The overall costs for communications are too high, though. I think that if you get more than one service from a company you should get a serious discount.

We pay for our cable connection her in the philippine, and we pay for our internet connection and so as our bill for electricity. But the thing is the internet connection is bundles with out phone line. so mean they have 1 payment internet and phone but sometimes our telecommunication provider will charge any fees that we dont know why are we paying those things..they will do additional charges that we didnt expect.

Yes, it happens and here I pay more for a land line, when I really only use mobile phones, keep a land line just for internet but it seems to me an abuse; However I can not give up a land line, but i do pay a referral for calls i do not do;is an abusse.

so we pay a fortune each month for our cable, internet and home phone. It comes to about $250 a month, but we also have pretty much everything you can get from our cable provider. It may cost a fortune, but the service and amount of channels, and also the internet speed is def worth it.

Hi, just seems too much, in fact it seems just too much, and I was sure that I probably pay more ... but there are these prices, however if you're happy with your service and I can afford is all what matter.

Cell phone is separated; but you don t have fix phone? That mean you have cable Internet, and it is cheaper here, but only in cities, there i can not use cable; i hope that soon will exist posibility to use a cable connection too.

The mobile phone is not in this package, is separate, but it seems that i pay more than you, maybe because I have two internet connections and two telephone lines and TV 2.

It is true,if we want to use something, we must to pay, even if many times and to me it seems a little expensive, but all costs, and is true, all are becoming more expensive, only salaries are the same, perhaps smaller, of course Unless we remain unemployed, and it is possible. God protect all.

Most of my overhead costs come from these tv, internet and landlines. They are not cheap and could easily reach RM300/- per month which to many are hefty amount to pay monthly. But I am fully satisfied with the services offered and have nothing to complain as it is a price to pay for wanting to be in the mainstream of new technology.

Hi, you're right if we want and we need to be connected to new technology have to pay for it, although often the payment is a little expensive sometimes, but if you think about how many people work for us to have all this ... like not too expensive. Anyway we pay so many taxes for what we don t use it so why like now there seems much to pay for something you really use it.

Our broadband is quite expensive here. Same as mobile phones and rent on landline phones. I had all my services with the same company, except one mobile phone. I was serioisly considering chaning my broadband service, until I read a little note on my current one. I rang them and they gave me $20 discount per month, which Im quite pleased about.

Hi, if they did discaunt $ 20, that means you paying a lot, really, but at least it is good that have dropped in cost, and you realize that no is not an issue to pay any bill with the $ 10 you earn here. We must try won at least $ 40 here, to cover even half the internet bill .. but it is impossible, no matter how hard you work...just in our dreams.....must find a secret formula ...

Home phone and internet = $75 (Bell Canada) Cellphone = $70 (Bell Canada) Cable TV = $40 (Rogers Canada) All prices are in Canadian dollars, so less than the Euro.

Hi, so you pay for internet and tv and fix phone 115 canadian dollars, (cell phone Mobile phone is not included in the package here, separated), means that about about how to pay myself, the only difference is that here the average salary is several times lower than in Canada. is not very good for us...

I only pay for TV license once a year for about S$180. Telephone costs less than 10 dollars after I don't use dial up connection. It can be as expensive as $50 a month with dial up. Internet is about $20 for 3MB. I think these are quite reasonable prices.
