I am curious - has any one had experience with this service? Obviously you still need to keep your internet service - and just drop the T.V. portion of your cable. This threatens the business model of companys like comcast - as their revenue stream is potentially cut in half. Are they pushing back by making you pay proportionately more if you just keep your internet? My cable bill has risen dramatically over the past few years - would love to save some $'s by dropping the T.V. portion.
