As for utilities, I only pay for Internet, and my phone service. My service provider is Comcast with their Internet Essentials program. This as the name implies provides me with Internet service. One of the things I do not like about Internet Essentials is the requirement of using Comcast’s router which I am not a fan of. I would rather use a basic modem and plug my own router into the modem. This however for some reason is not an option.
Next is my phone service. I use Visible as a primary line, and Mint Mobile as a secondary line. This is because of how Google Voice handles call forwarding in their system. I no longer have a “home” phone line, and all calls goes to my cellular phone.
