Two people moving into a new place in Edmonton, mostly calling each other [or not, neither have cell phones right now] and local calls almost exclusively. Cable TV is not a requirement, although even the phone company provides that service now.
Is it best to go with a dsl/landline package from Telus
A cable internet/digital phone package from Shaw
Internet from [somebody] and VOIP [with Vonage
? somebody better?]
Having two cellphones on a family plan and [magical internet from whoever] sounds like it provide the most convenience for us, but there are also a zillion cell phone providers to sift through to figure out what the best deal would be there.
Our total phone usage is currently quite low [maybe 20 minutes/month each?] but that might creep up with cell phone ownership. The kind of calls we make are mostly of the this-is-my-current-location-i-will-see-you-at-X-o'clock type, and would be served equally well by text messages, but voice calls are necessary for contacting older relatives.
What I'm looking for is someone who has been down this road and can point to the glaringly obvious solution that I haven't even considered yet.
