interested in alternative plans for internet, cable, and land line connectivity given by AT&T

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            My uVerse 200 plan with AT&T will be increasing with respect to cost at the conclusion of this month.  With that said, I am interested in knowing about other ISP's which also offer internet, cable, and land line connectivity services.   The plan of interest would need to be something equivalent to the services offered within my current uVerse 200 AT&T package.

            Any shared suggestions along with services offered and plan rates will be greatly appreciated.  If more information is needed in explaining our current setup, please feel free to let me know and it will be furnished upon request.

             Thank you

             George

Just keep in mind, generally speaking, I've heard ComCast Cable is the worst... By experience, Time Warner cable is the worst.  Few Cable/Internet providers aren't utterly horrible.  Verizon is OK, Cablevision in NY is generally good (but they just sold themselves to a French company that has a reputation as being the worst...

Get the idea... there's no really good solution... And who may be evil today may be slightly less tomorrow and more so the next day.
It's not like AT&T is better than the cable companies.  Cable internet is generally faster than AT&T unless you are one of the lucky ones to have fiber-to-the-curb from them.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everybody,

             Thank you for your shared suggestions along with the resourceful contact information.  This post was prompted by some recent information indicating that my discounted rate for AT&T uVerse 200 package will soon expire and return to its regular rate which is pricey.  Upon getting this information, I was naturally concerned because of being on a month by month budget.  

            With respect to a solution, I will follow up with AT&T later on this month and check on any special promo offers that might be available to help buffer this increase in cost of services.  I will also check in with other companies referenced within this post.   I realize that access to cable, internet, and land line phone services will depend upon my location which is in the city area of Murfreesboro, TN.  As such, my options might not extend beyond AT&T and Comcast.

             Thanks again everyone for your suggestions.

             George
George,
At least you have choices beside just one.
You are only about 15 miles from the Nashville city limits. That should give you Time Warner as a possible option.

Our only choice does offer discounts.
You might approach AT&T and say you are considering switching because their rates are going up when you have been a loyal customer for x number of months or years.

Good luck.
