So out here in Suburban Whitebread Hell, [livejournal.com profile] metesten and I have a choice between two huge soulsucking corporations to provide broadband Internet access. Our current provider (which I will call Bombast, for homophony and on account of their ads) gives us decent download speeds and reliability, but charges ca. $45/month for access (they also provide digital cable for close to twice that). HSC 2 (which I will call Mob L, for reasons not worth mentioning) has recently installed fiber out to our area, and are charging for net/TV/phone combo rather less than what we're paying Bombast for net/TV, and considerably less than what we're paying for net/TV + landline phone. (The price comparison is for the post-introductory offer values, btw.) Mob L claims higher download speeds now that they've got the fiber hookups, and they also have a bunch of foofoos based on interconnectivity between tv, net, & phone that may or may not be worth anything.

Anyway, my question for anyone with knowledge of the field is should we switch? Bombast has been good for us so far, but if we can get comparable service for less that'd be good. Opinions?
