I am using Time Warner Cable, here is how it goes although when the power goes out I don't have a phone, but then when the power went out before I did not have a phone because I have cordless phones that rely on a power source. Problem one solved, same difference different channel.
This is what I am looking at, I have cable, I have phone, and I have Roadrunner this saves me $502 a year. I could not ask for more. My phone bill will always be 39.95 long distance and local long distance is all inclusive, high speed capabilities (I went wireless through out the house an extra $5/month), and my cable bill that I was paying already. For three months I get it for $99, after that it is $137.77 for all three.
Before I got Roadrunner and digital phone I was paying 111 phone, dsl included which was not reliable, and 64.47 for cable. You can see the monthly saving right away.
If you are using dial up and start using Roadrunner you will actually get giddy using the net. Yes, it is well worth the money. The way I am looking at it, it is all win/win for us.
