Although many people talk about bundling cable and internet, there may be questions about what this actually means. Does it make sense to bundle or not? While services and providers are going to vary from area to area, taking a look at some of the most frequently asked questions is a good idea. Although you will likely still have to do some research on your own to find specific prices, these general answers will guide you on where to get started.

Why bundle services?

Can I bundle internet and cell phone plans?

Although not every provider allows for this, some TV internet providers will allow you to bundle a wireless phone plan with an internet or TV package. This may not be available by all providers though. Some internet providers have wireless phone capabilities while others do not. Make sure to look into what options are available for bundling if this is something that you want.

Which provider offers the cheapest cable and internet bundle?

Depending on your geographical location, the price and features of the bundles available is going to vary. For example, some companies may have a lower price but not have the same speeds for internet as other providers. There is likely not one clear winner when it comes to price and performance at the same time. Compare internet speeds along with prices to find the right price point for your budget and needs.

Which providers offer cable and internet without a contract?

Most of the larger companies such as Xfinity, Frontier, and CenturyLink all offer cable and internet without a contract. Keep in mind that the features are different with each provider and they're not available everywhere. You may end up paying more if you decide to choose a plan that does not have a contract. However, you will have the benefit of being able to cancel your plan anytime which may be ideal for short-term internet needs.

Do I need to bundle in order to save money?

In general, bundling is the best way to enjoy multiple services while paying a lower overall price. Buying individual services is possible but you'll probably pay more with this option. The only downside is that you may end up paying for services that you don't need. Look at the bundling options in your area to determine if you would use everything included. Price out the individual options as well to determine if all of them are needed and you'll find the optimal price point.
