Where I live, the cable belongs to Time Warner who offers their Roadrunner service on the same system. You probably will have a similar situation. I pay the amount you show in your post and there are no fees or taxes so far....and I've had the service at the same rate for a number of years. If I have problems, I call the cable company and not Earthlink. Hope that helps.
I'm looking to switch to either earthlink cable or windstream DSL. Earthlink shows $41.95 for their service, plus any fess and taxes. Would someone tell me how much they are paying in fees and taxes? I would like to compare actual prices.
