  1. Oh yeah. This is just the beginning. As bandwidth to people’s houses continues to increase, people are going to be able to get more services through one connection. Heck, Cox is already providing cable, internet and telephone service all on their one connection. By the time this generation of kids are in college, the telephone line will probably be a thing of the past.

  2. eagle does the same thing. its a great idea in some respects but if you get all you services from one company they can charge whatever they want for everything especially in small town markets where there is no competition

  3. Oh yeah. That’s the way it was here in Manhattan too. Cox has been the only provider for years. But I think the city council decided that when Cox’s contract expires, they’re going to allow other cable companies to come in to town. Which is good. I don’t know when that’ll happen though. All I know is I’m not paying over $100 a month for digital cable and internet.
