My friends and I got an apartment together just a couple of weeks ago. This is the first time any of us have lived on our own because we all lived with our respective parents previously. We saved our money up and planned for a long time. Dad said that I shouldn’t pay for things without comparing costs first. He said that I should compare San Jose Internet costs as well as cable costs or anything else we pay for monthly before signing a contract. This made sense, but I knew I would need to be the one who did it because I know my roommates are very lazy!
I knew that we needed to get service as soon as possible after our move in date. It would probably only take us a couple of days to get our furniture moved in, then unpack everything and get our place set up. After that, we would all want access to the usual services we are used to having fun with. While still at home, I got on our computer at home and found some pages online that let me easily do some comparison shopping for service in our area. It was pretty easy compared to needing to call ever provider there is to ask about costs and every associated detail for each package.
I chose a couple of bundle packages and ran them by the guys. We all made a collective decision to get the service that was right in the middle cost-wise. I then called the company back and told them what day to arrive for the install. We did not even have time to worry about Internet during our first couple of days, but once we were all settled in, we were all very interested in getting online. Thanks to me being proactive, we were able to do exactly that.
