If you're not in one of those categories, consider checking out a local service that almost always provides competition to a cable modem. It's good old DSL.

Step one is calling your provider at least once a year to go over your bill to figure out what you are paying for and why, for both cable TV and Internet. Here's another true story: I recently found I had been charged for a big sports package over the previous two months and got actual attitude from the customer service rep when I said I wanted a refund.

Leaving aside our cable TV bills, which are always going up, there are the costs we pay for simple Internet access. Those are high and always going up, too.

But there's a catch: The biggest problem all of us have with our cable and Internet bills is that there just isn't actual competition in most cities. We've got one choice for high speed Internet or nothing.
