Gonna Get Myself Connected (Faster)

Those of you read this blog with any degree of regularity know that I’m currently living my internet life in the slow lane on a 56k modem and in the world of 8 channels (an upgrade of 7 channels from where I lived before). With the big move to our nation’s capital (and a job in media studies), I’m planning to get a faster modem and cable TV.

So here’s the big question for my DC readers: What do you recommend in terms of internet service and cable TV service? I’d love to be able to watch IFC, the Sundance Channel, and similar movie stations, but I’ll have to watch my budget. Suggestions are welcome, either here in the comments or by email (chutry[at]msn[dot]com).

    Congrats on the upgrade!

    I’m not sure that it’s the best deal, but Time/Warner has been very reliable for Internet and Cable TV for us.

    Actually, we subscribed to their Internet service after living in our apt for a year, and it turns out we had had the cable tv coming in all along. So, uh, we don’t pay for the cable. You might see if your new apt already has cable tv coming in.

    “time-warner” is no longer a cable/internet provider in suburban maryland. i’m sure they own whoever is…

    i’d go with whatever marc suggests, but we’ve been happy with starpower, a local carrier, and ifc and both sundance channels are part of our basic lineup.
