Cost of 15 MB residential DSL.
My only available phone or internet, except for satellite, is TDS. I thoroughly believe this company abuses it's rural customers because there is no competition out here. That being said, I have only the most basic phone because that is my way to get DSL. No caller ID, long distance, etc. I pay around $25 a month for the phone (it varies a little each month) and $62.20 for 15 MB of DSL. TDS is partnered with DISH so, along with my TV my monthly bill is around $165. I am 69 and retired and this is a heavy expense. I do read a lot, but I am a child of the TV era and do enjoy evening programs. Is TDS charging me a lot or am I just grumpy? Friends and family who live in urban areas where there is competition pay far less than I.
