Cable-free

One of my goals for the new year is to dump cable TV. I lived without it for three years in SF--I decided it was not worth the money after Angel was cancelled, because I wasn't watching any new shows at the time and had only had it for the picture quality. Living no-cable did become a bit of an issue when I started getting into Lost, because I couldn't get ABC on the rabbit ears, unlike other local channels.

Now, I just don't watch that many shows, and I have Google TV and streaming video, so I can watch things without needing cable (only downside, no closed captioning, but that should be changing), and it would still be less money than I am paying in a monthly cable bill.

But here's the trick: I also use cable for internet at the moment, and I ain't giving up my internet. So I need to find an internet provider that isn't connected to cable or satellite TV. So what do people suggest? Is Century Link any good? Is there an alternative that isn't cable, satellite, or DSL, or do I need to pretty much go DSL? And if I do, I do *not* want to pay for a land line I won't use. Me and my cell phone get by pretty well.

Thanks, all.

I'm not too happy with their internet service, either. I often have to reset the modem and router due to no connection. It gets a bit annoying. But it's the TV I'm not interested in. I can ask, but talking to those phone reps rarely goes well. They want to sell you more, not less.
