It's horrendous how much ISP's charge for internet.
Here, we pay $15 a month for the cheapo plan and $30 for the deluxe, which I'm sure is not as fast as in the US, but at least it's reasonably priced.
My buddy streams TV on his laptop with Slingbox, so it's not too bad.
The combined phone and internet bill is approx. $60/month tax in and the TV cable service, costs $17/month.
One would think that we would pay more for services like that, here on a Caribbean island, and we used to, but as time went on, the services got cheaper and cheaper, where they appear to have become more expensive in the US.
Americans are taking it up the butt from the ISP's[scientificamerican.com].
The average U.S. household has to pay an exorbitant amount of money for an Internet connection that the rest of the industrial world would find mediocre.
There are internet only providers, outside of those that use your phone companies DSL lines. They tend to be located in rural areas and sell wireless based services. Example http://www.airlogic.net/index.html
Viacom’s case, it’s facing the possibility of losing its audience, as more and more young people shun cable and turn to the Internet for their video entertainment. MTV has had a bit of a renaissance over recent years, thanks in no small part to shows like Jersey Shore. But it’s facing increasing competition for eyeballs from YouTube and VEVO — where viewers can get more than their share of music videos and youth-oriented programming. Viacom is also seeing its youngest viewers turn to the Internet, as Nick and Nick Jr are being disrupted by on-demand kids programming on services like Netflix.
I would bet that a lot of the common cable channels are facing similar pressure.
