Which Phone TV Internet Package is Right for You?

Nov 26th 2012 at 7:32 PM

Bundled phone, TV, and Internet service can be a little confusing since we're dealing with several types of service. It will help you to know that only the cable, and phone companies offer bundled plans with all three products. A phone company will typically offer landline, voip, wireless or even fios phone service with satellite TV and DSL for Internet. A cable company will most likely offer cable TV, digital phone, and cable Internet. Both DSL and Cable Internet are high speed or broadband, just different technologies.

Understanding this, you now know you have two options for a bundled plan, but both options provide all three types of service, and the only real difference is the technology used to deliver those services. Location can play a big part in determining whether to go through a cable or phone company for your bundle. If you live in the city, or well populated area, a cable bundle should be readily available. If you live in a more rural area, you may have to go with a bundle through your phone company.

If you want wireless phone service as part of your package, you'll need to go to a phone company, because cable companies do not offer wireless or cellular phone service. In the event you already have cellular service and are under contract from a company that does not service your area for landline, you may have to either break your contract to get the bundle offered by them who supplies landline in your area, or just keep your cellular plan and go for the cable bundle instead.

If you're fortunate enough to have the option of bundling through both a phone, or cable company, you'll just need to decide who offers the best plan for you financially, and which type of technology you prefer to deliver your services such as satellite TV and DSL with a phone company, or cable TV and cable Internet with a cable company. They are not interchangeable services. You cannot get cable Internet or cable TV through your phone company, and you cannot get satellite TV or DSL through your cable company. Understanding these differences will simplify the process of getting the right bundle.
