Total price before box rentals (see the TV section), long distance usage and taxes: $149.16.

Home Phone:

The standard home phone service that comes with 14 added features. The only ones of value for us really are Voicemail and Visual Call Waiting. The other 12 are included no matter what. I think it's funny how much the phone service costs with EastLink compared to the phone company. It's like $20 on top of internet and tv and has all those features, so if you need any of them they are there. With NT, you'd pay 3 or 4 dollers per month PER service plus a huge fee for the phone line itself.

Internet:

We now have the standard 20Mb internet package that comes with their bundles. We do have the Wifi modem and are paying $2.95 a month for access to it. This wireless router has got to be the most solid wifi box I've ever had. It's almost two years old and I've yet to have to reset or powercycle it. The routers I've had before would need to unplugged every week or two if I wanted to connect wirelessly. The modem also has 4 GB ethernet ports with makes it fast to transfer data to different wired PCs. The wifi portion suppports Wireless N and can be used in dual-band mode (2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz) in case you have a different device or cordless phones that could interfere with it.

TV:

There is myself, my wife and my in-laws living in this house. We have our own dual-tuner DVR plus a HD digital box. They also have the same two boxes plus we have Whole Home DVR Service connected from their DVR to their box. One digital box is free per month, the second digital box is $5.99 a month. The DVRs are $19.95 a month each plus Whole Home DVR is $5 a month. That makes up a total of $50.89 on our bill before taxes. The reason I am bringing this up because if you had was one TV and didn't want DVR service, you'd have no "rental" charges, hence a lower bill.

We are satisfied with the service, and the level of choices we have. I'm not crazy that DVR rentals are $5 more a month here than in N.S., but that price was from the Persona days, and well....they have no incentive to reduce it.

I just have to say thank God that EastLink came here. They turned this entire cable system around and we now are one par with other major systems in Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal, etc.
