Having both internet and cable services can be pretty expensive, especially these days when COVID has frozen many aspects of our lives and impacted the economic situation negatively. On average a US household pays $50-$60 every month in terms of their internet charges. Now add $45-$60 for the cable (if you have one or two TV boxes) – which goes over $110 and we are not even considering mobile phones and landline phones.
One way to decrease these bills is to cancel the unnecessary services but if surviving without internet is hard, not having a cable service is stressful especially when you are used to it. And if you have both, then the monthly cost is killing. The only way to keep both the services and save some money is to find a good bundle deal on the internet and cable. Doing so would provide you the best value for your money and you would get to keep both of the services instead of dropping any.
So to cope with such circumstances, we have compiled a list of the cheapest plans for cable TV and internet for widely available providers that will help you find the right bundle and save you a lot of money.
