Each month we hand AT&T aprox $400. That's right - $400. Our TV/Internet runs about $200 a month. This includes U-Verse and internet that is slow. We've had our modem replaced, but we still have to reboot it a couple times a week. Our wifi sucks. There are times I need to switch my phone to 3g in my house because the wifi is so bad. The TV is OK but not great. We've had our recordings disappear a few times and we don't get the Padres, but it's easier to stay with them then change.
For our phone we have 4 lines on their family plan. The lowest family plan has 700 minutes per month and rollover. We use about 200 minutes between the 4 of us. We have the family texting plan. And 2 iPhones with unlimited data.
Each month my husband uses about 150,000 kb of data. He could switch to the $15 plan but he never knows if the navy will send him somewhere where he will need to have unlimited data. I made the stupid decision to put my music in the cloud with music match. I suspect a lot of the backups they are doing are sucking bandwidth too
Well now I need to worry about being throttled. I use over 3gb of data a month, which could put me in the top 5%. I'm not happy about this - I have a deep committed love affair with my iPhone and I don't know if I can handle being throttled.
