I moved from the US and I’ve been living in a service apartment for a couple weeks and find no need for landline telephone or cable/sat TV. As long as I have broadband, I think I’m able to satisfy my communication and entertainment needs.
Next month I’m moving into a permanent apartment in a building where I’ll have to pay my own utilities. Does anyone live without a landline and cable TV? Can you still get broadband or is there no “naked” option? I would plan to just have a cell phone and use Skype outbound from home, if I really felt I needed a U.S. phone # I would consider Magic Jack but don’t really see the point as all of my friends and family use Skype or GTalk.
