I am looking for recommended providers for electric, gas, phone, internet, cable - coming from a small town where there weren't too many choices, it is a bit overwhelming!

What can I do next?

Hello D.,

We live about 15 minutes apart. I was new last September after getting booted here by hurricane Katrina.

Anyway, your realtor should have provided you with some options. Ours gave us a little booklet with info.

Here: we use Centerpoint (for gas), Entergy (for electric), Cox (for cable, internet, phone).

We're about to move to our new home in Conroe (just north of where you are) in a few weeks and are able to just transfer our service.

Best of luck!

Hi D.! I to am new to the area. All I can do is share the info I found and let you know who I chose. For phone service I chose SBC because they bundled my internet, phone and Dish together for a great price. I chose TXU for energy because their rates were standard for the area and they did not charge a cancellation fee if you change your mind and want another provider.

Welcome to the area! It looks like we are all on the same page. I too use SBC/ATT phone and internet services. The only thing I differ from is I have DirecTV (time warner does not service all areas I try every year). I also use TXU for electric provider. There is a website that contains comparisons to Reliant, but TXU was not listed and it was cheaper. Mayor White recommended the site, so it should be on a city page or you can google for info. Good luck!

Time warner cable does internet, cable and digitle phone is some areas. I use them for cable and for the internet. They haven't set up the phones in our area yet. I am in a newer subdivision. As far as a gas company I belive the only one is Center point. There are several diferent electric companies and I recomend that you check around and make sure that you don't have to sign any contracts. I am using dynowatt. So far so good.

We use Time Warner for basic cable (not big tv watchers.
SBC or ATT (combined now) is our telephone and high-speed internet provider although you could do all three of these; cable, phone, internet through time warner if they are having a good deal for new customers. It's usually worth it to combine. We don't use satellite cablew because we have too many trees living in The Woodlands. Hope this helps!
