On the Roku Remote hit the Home Button 5 times then the Rewind button 3 times then the Fast Forward button 2 times. From the dropdown menu select 3.5 instead of 12 MBPS. This maneuver plus the hitting of the Home Button Like Biker1 said will cut the usage way down. Our usage was off the hook the first month but once we did these two things our usage dropped way under the limit. Streaming Pandora uses very little data. It's all worth it once you get these little things down.

I subscribe to Cord Cutters and get a helpful email from the daily.

We have Roku & a Fire Stick. I prefer the Roku by a mile. Today Apple released something new. Haven't had time to check it out yet but it's gotta be great.

Not unhappy but I wish Century Link would install fiber optic in the central Villages.
I was told about a year ago by CenturyLink that they offer 20 MBPS on DSL. I ordered it and they turned off my service the next morning on a Tuesday to prepared for a Friday installation of the faster service. Against my better judgment and out of anger I went to Comcast for the Starter Package at $32 a month. I bought a Motorola Router and the bill is $19.99 a month now. Due to renew shortly it should be interesting. The Comcast Service has been fine! Fingers crossed.
