Darby... high speed internet options...comcast at about 45 / month or embarq dsl (have a promotion now that says fix cost for life at 25/month. Both have new customer promotions. Hi speed internet will not be a problem.

Cell phones...if you guys only want cell phones for emergency, where are you type of communication, then I would recommend a prepaid cell phone. We use Tracfone...for $100/yr with annual plan you get about 400 minutes (depending on what promotion they are running) and often have deals on phones too. Check their website www.tracfone.com. No monthly fees and I've had no problems getting signals here. For the casual cell phone user, it's the most economical way to go. Wait til you get here to buy one...since the phone activation needs to take place in the area in which you will be based.

Talked to Verizon today. Family members have Verizon. For 2 phones, 700 min per month (for 2) no roaming (we want the phone when we are on the road to TV) free weekends and evenings and our Verizon family members call free (no min) and with a Colorado phone number (even in TV) our other family and friends can call at no long distance charge to them....$69.00 and initial costs of $50 for 2 phones. We've never had a cell phone before but I think that sounds pretty good. (What do you all think??????)
