I got DISH and ATT works with those folks to do the combined billing for your home phone (if you still continue to pay for that highway robbery, went with MAJIC JACK-Awesome)internet and TV. Dish is very good but in very dense storms you will loose signal briefly but no big deal.

I do not understand why Manhattan cannot have other cable companies in our town. I understand that Kraus was here first, but feel they have a monopoly on cable and IP Internet access.

Does anyone know why????

I don't want a landline phone so need internet without phone access. I think from what I see on flyer, Dish has a very good package..Just worried about internet provider then. Also I am curious how Dude gets U-verse??? I am just upset with the amt of channels I get with Kraus. I pay close to $90 a month and have just basic cable and internet!!
why bother

look into a Verizon 4g router, maybe fit your needs if you can get the antenna high enough. We get 4g upstairs on our cells, but just 3G on the main floor.

Well unfortunately, after talking to Dish and Direct TV salespeople, it is still cheaper to go with Kraus. I get less channels but at $20 less, I guess I can handle that. I wish Comcast would push their way in.

I checked on this a while ago and U-verse is only available in some parts of Manhattan--not all. I'm hoping Kraus' hold on this town will diminish and maybe we can have a bit more choices.

Had Kraus for 4 months, that was 5 months too long. I have never seen such a bootleg cable system in my life. Seriously, who don't offer a DVR package in 2012?? With the package deal for T.V, Phone, and Internet only 2 of the 3 ever worked at any given time. Then they had the nerve to disconnect it after I told them I would not pay until their service was fixed. I was about to go to DirecTv when I found out we could have U-Verse. I was very nice to go modern after having a cable system from 1985.

Again why cant we get U-verse?? Something don't sound right. I know people in towns that are hardly developed as Manhattan and built in the 50's and they get it?

Bootleg is a good description of the not so modern communication services available in the village. Junk is a good description to those village government officials that suppress the residential audiences' desire to have more options available to them. So in the 2013 election get rid of the deadwood lying around on Lakeview and the two toads that perch on it.

If U-verse is so great why doesn't ATT offer it to all of Manhattan and Elwood???? From what I can tell when it comes to covering Manhattan AND Elwood Kraus does IT & ATT DOESN"T!!!! I've had Kraus for 12 years, Cable & Internet and never had issues & from what I remember ATT has had DSl for what 6 yrs? And to this day Kraus has always have had faster speeds. You know with Kraus I am getting 8M w/ the Pro gammer and after calling their office last week I found out they are getting 12-14M by March 2012. OK maybe they dont offer DVRs but have you ever heard of TiVo you dumb ass!!!!!!!! One more thing when was the last time ATT contributed to our towns??? NEVER!!!! MAYBE you should start supporting the one who support our communities! But then again your probably a fat piece of shit that has no life and just lives to word vomit on topix!
