I cancelled my cable 21 months ago. How much have I saved in the interim? $711.69. Not a small amount.

This figure is based on some assumptions, however. It assumes that the $33.89 monthly fee wouldn’t have increased, which seems unlikely. It also assumes that I would not have upgraded to a high-def package, with the accompanying increase in the monthly fee, which is also unlikely.

If I knew then what I know now, would I have made the same decision? Certainly not. I would have done it earlier.
