Getting a bang for your buck: Comparing Cable and Internet providers

January 5, 2016

One of my favorite things to do is making sure that I get the most for my money from my service providers. That sometimes means calling them and renegotiating my package, and sometimes that means finding a better deal somewhere else.

And why wouldn’t you be doing that? It is my money after all. One of my biggest monthly expenses is my cable, and internet bill. Because I work from home most of the time, having reliable internet is a must. And because it’s really cold up here, having something to watch on TV saves me from splurging on going to the movies often often.

What do I use to make sure that I getting the most for my money in the cable and internet realm? Allconnect.

Allconnect is a leading multi-channel marketplace that makes shopping for home services so much easier.

Not only does it allow you to comparison shop for your cable and internet, but you can also bundle your phone, home security system, electricity and natural gas as well.

One stop shopping!

I plugged in my current monthly package, and made sure I noted all the things that was important to me- movies (HBO®, STARZ® Cinemax®, SHOWTIME® Streampix®), and sports (NFL Network, NHL Network MLB Network, NFL RedZone, NBA TV), and the features that I needed on my home phone, as well as the bandwidth that I needed on my internet, and was pleasantly surprised to find that switching to a different cable/satellite provider would save me atleast $50/month (over $600/year).

And that’s just for starters- I did the same for my internet, and home phone, and let’s just say that I can afford to take that month long trip to Asia that I was thinking about earlier.


And want to know the best part? It’s perfect for when you’re moving! Just plug in your new address and let the tool look for the deals for you! Most telecommunications companies know that the move is when they can upsell your services, so arm yourself with the pricing knowledge before calling them, and see if you can save yourself a few more dollars!

I’m in love with the tool mostly because it’s perfect for those of us who don’t like spending hours on the phone with the cable company every time our contract is up.
