    Yeah, that shocked me too.

    Internet - $50 month (100/100)
    Dish - $57.34 (Welcome)
    Google Voice w/ Obi200 - $0 (after initial hardware investment - no 911 service FWIW)
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Total - $107.34

    Thing is, I'd like to cut that by about $30, so I can subscribe to more streaming services without paying any more. The "land line" is really just a backup for when Wi-fi calling craps out on our cell phones, which hasn't happened since we switched to AT&T Prepaid.

    Here and Now
    Here's what I'm currently paying:

    YouTube TV: $50/mo.
    Internet (100Mbps): $60/mo.
    Phone (Ooma): $14.50/mo. (incl. premium phone features for my home-based business)

    Total: $124.50

    When I cut the cord three years ago, my three-way bundle (before negotiated discount) was around $210.00 and that only included one 2-tuner DVR (no other boxes or room connections).
    Now, I'm guessing I would be paying at least $225 as my cable company has since tacked on broadcast and RSN fees ($17/mo. combined).
