    X-Large bundle from shaw. With over 180 TV channels, including Movie Central, Internet speeds of up to 50 Mbps and unlimited long distance calling throughout Canada and the U.S. Think we pay about 180, but i don't you guy's have Shaw back east?

    holy shit that's expensive!

    We were paying the introductory rate with Shaw for $39.99, and then after the three months it jumped up to $139.99, needless to say we don't have cable anymore and I invested in a gym membership instead. After cancelling cable I realized how much time I actually sat around doing nothing after work but watching garbage shows ( I still miss Say Yes to the Dress)

    My wife and I used to pay over $200 /mo through Bell for satillite tv, basic home phone and SLOW internet. We're talking 1.3 mb/s on good days. We now have Digital VIP cable tv and extreme internet ( Have yet to test it coming back less than 30 mb/s ) for $112/mo through Rogers after all fees and taxes. We use our cell phones and xlink device for homephone.

    We had a good deal with Eastlink - bundle of internet, phone and cable for 99 plus tax. Then it rose to 139 plus tax. They wouldn't do anything for us for a cheaper bundle so we dropped everything except internet. We don't miss cable that much, plus we have Netflix and for the money it's better for us.

    Basic cable, phone and 20mb internet via Eastlink and it was $125 or something like that.

    we just signed up for Fiber Op because eastlink would't match the deal (they went good for the price and HD, but no change in speed (without caps) and no equal offer on TMN and On Demand.)

    80/30 internet
    phone
    HD Tv with 3 PVR's
    TMN
    Free On Demand
    $300 Visa Gift card
    12M for $99.95

    Cogeco Bundle for HD Cable, High speed internet and work fax line. I think it is around $150 a month.

    I would love to cancel cable and start downloading programs. I keep the Cable for HBO and HD Sports channels.

    we dropped everything but internet and landline (long story short, but we need a local number for our door buzzer, apparently I'm locked into an eastern contract with my cell phone that wont let me change to a BC number), my boyfriend works out of town so there's no point in having TV. we pay 70 a month

    Over this way ours is about a $225/month package for home phone/unlimited internet/satellite. Seems expensive, but it's the satellite that really ups the price because we've got pretty much every sports channel.

    $90-ish for internet and phone with Bell Aliant. We currently have slow-ass 7 Mbps internet but they're coming out next Wednesday to hook up the 20/15 Fibre Op, for the same price we're currently paying.
