Wylie here, we just moved out to the suburbs from an apartment in Dallas. Being a Mustachian in Dallas is kind of amusing observing people as they bury themselves in debt for Mercedes, McMansions and overpriced dinners at trendy restaurants (Uptown "30K millionaires")...
We would definitely be interested in a get together with other DFW members!
Plano here - I saw 6 or 7 others on the first pages. Question for them: what is the cheapest internet-only service you have found? Seems TWC and VZN are the only options here, and I pay TWC almost $60. It's fast (130+dl/23ul) but I'm ok reducing. Thanks!
My wife and I had the TWC $15/month plan for 2 years and we loved it, even streamed HD Netflix (not 4K). The download speed is 3mbps. The trick to being able to stream video on a "slow" connection without buffering issues is to set up your network so that bandwidth priority goes to your streaming devices. This is called QoS (quality of service).
The way we have it set up is we bought a router (never lease a modem or router from your internet company, it's a waste of money) that we could install aftermarket software DD-WRT on. The QoS settings dictate that our playstation and TV streaming devices have priority when they need it and all other devices share something like 5% of bandwidth in that case. That way when your phone starts updating Facebook or pinging an email server, it doesn't hog up all the bandwidth and cause your video to lag. During the times when you're not streaming video, all devices will get the bandwidth they need.
We're now on the $35 TWC plan for 50mbps and the only reason we upgraded is so that we could stream Netflix in 4K. It works perfectly.
