Comcast Xfinity Deal - 50mb Internet, Set Top Box, and Basic Cable for $39.99 per month.
My Xfinity Internet cable subscription is due to expire in February. I have been paying $29.99 per month for naked internet. I get about 25-30mbs download and 5-6 mbs upload at that rate.
The new offer is a doubling of the internet pipeline to 50 mbs per month. I would have to agree to "Xfinity pictures", which is some cable set top box, and also have basic digital cable. The contract would be for 1 year. If I do not, my price goes up to $49.99 (or $39.99, I can't remember exactly) per month for my current service.
While I am concerned about the eye of Sauron in my living room, our family essentially watches no cable tv. I believe we could turn off the cable box. Sports are generally over the air and the kids choose what is available from Amazon Prime or our home library.
Is this a good deal? Anyone know of any other deals? I am not wedded to any provider, but only AT&T and Xfinity are players in Atlanta.
