Reason: Steps I took
Call up COX, tell them you're thinking about dropping them because of the price. There's a good chance you can get them to reduce the price.
If not, look at other options. Comcast and Optimum constantly run promos for internet service for about $30/month for the first year. After that, Comcast goes up to around $60 (although you can upgrade your service with another promo for $40/month for a faster speed, just for the next year), Optimum goes up to $45 after a year.
As for mobile, do you have a data plan, or just talk/text? How many minutes/texts do you think you'll need?
Could go with Freedompop if you don't use much internet (500mb free per month) and assuming you're in a supported area.
As for phone, consider a different VOIP / SIP provider. Anveo.com is very cheap (pay for usage, $40 would get you a LOT of usage). Uses either a software phone (like 3CX is free) or a VOIP phone / DTA that is programmable. Should lower the phone costs considerably and provide very good service.
As for cell phone, no idea, that's pretty low already..really depends on usage if pay-as-you-go is worthwhile or not.
I have cox too.. They do have a slower 2mb internet for like 30 or 40 a month.
As for the vonage just get rid of it unless you care about having a house phone.
If you dont' use data straight talk is 5 dollars cheaper for 1000 min and 1000txt... Id get skype or something to replace vonage should be about half as much I would assume. Skype to skype calls are free.
