I'm looking to add Comcast Digital Voice to my Comcast Internet and TV packages in hopes of saving some money. I have some questions
1) Comparing what I have today with what the Triple Play bundles offer, it looks like the Xfinity Preferred Plus Bundle, listed at $169.99 (for Eagan area) would be the correct package. Looking online, I -think- I could get an introductory rate for that package for $139.99 for a while. Any tips on how to get a good deal -- ideally for at least a year? Should I try to do this online? Order via an 800 number? Drive over to St. Paul? Will I be charged an installation fee? Is it negotiable?
2) Today I have two TiVoHD units, each with a cable card from Comcast. I don't have any Comcast cable boxes or other hardware. Is this going to confuse Comcast when trying to move to the Triple Play?
3) I own a Motorola SB6120 cable modem. I understand I'll need a new Cable Modem/EMTA. At $7.00/month, it looks like I'd pay for a $150 EMTA in about 22 months. Not sure which way to go there. Any input from the forum? I wish I could keep my SB6120 for data, and have a separate device (for less money) just to peel off the phone service. I'd put it in a different location than where my cable modem is located.
Thanks for any input!
