Who offers the cheapest home internet service and the best value?

Report as

If you are under 135% of the poverty level or if you are one the most popular government assistance programs (food stamps, SSI, Medicaid, housing assistance, etc), you can qualify for $9.95 broadband internet from either Comcast (cable) or CenturyLink (DSL). Comcast has Internet Essentials, which is for anyone with a child in the home that is on the school lunch program. CenturyLink offers Internet Basics which is for those that are low-income or on government assistance. Then, the FCC Lifeline program (free government cell phone program) is getting ready to roll out Lifeline Internet cheap. There are other smaller programs as well. There's a site that concentrates completely on helping people figure out what they can get. It's at http://www.cheapinternet.com.

I think Earthlink provide the cheapest home internet service at the best value. However, the price and quality of internet connection you get will depend on the location of where you live or stay.

Try Ooma. I am using this product for three years now and they have lived up to their promises. The charge is very low and constant since the day I purchased it. I really saved a lot of money, enjoys great service plus crystal clear voice quality, and the best thing about it--I get to call nationwide for free and offers low international rates. Check out their site for more: http://www.ooma.com/micro6/index.php

I use the Google Voice service with an OBi device from Obihai Technology.

Google Voice provides all Gmail users with the ability to get a free phone number. You can also make calls for free to any USA or Canadian phone number.

Couple your Gmail account with an OBi device (I have an OBi202), and you can use your regular home phone connected to the OBi device to make and receive calls for free. You need to have a fast (broadband) internet connection. But that's about it.

You can port your old number to be your Google number for $20.

With the providers becoming more & more competitive, service rates change on an almost monthly basis. I'd suggest going to a real-time comparison site.

Try going to:
www.cabletvdepot.com and putting in your address to see what the rates are?

They compare comcast, time warner cable, verizon fios, uverse, suddenlink, clear and more. I think they have wireless providers as well.
