I have been looking at the advertising by Comcast for their big bundle – three services for $33/month (each). I say to myself “that’s $100 a month to Comcast.” Then again, Cable can easily run $50/month so that’s a steal. Their internet service goes for $40/month so I guess $100/month to include phone is not bad. Of course I don’t want cable so it’s not a deal for me, but then I realize that they were advertising that their digital phone service would be about $14/month so it’s really only about $4/month worth of savings.
I save a bunch on Cable, a little on internet, and pay two and a half times for the phone. Nice marketing.
