I guess government does have an impact on these things.  Last I heard, a few 
years ago, basic TV was about $45 in Montgomery County PA.  I have heard 
neighbors complain about increases, so I assume it's over $50 now.  If it was 
$10 here, they wouldn't be advertising $33 + $33 + $33 as an introductory 
deal. (btw isn't VOIP supposed to be cheaper than the "special" price of 
$33?)  I think my Verizon POTS and Sprint LD together aren't more than that 
before the taxes and tarriffs.  I am sure that the $33 is pre-tax.
