How often do you think about your utilities like electric, gas, phone, TV, and Internet? Probably just once a month when the bills come. Even then, you probably just pay without much thought other than a quick mutter about how much it's costing you.
In fact, you don't really pay attention to utilities until you decide to move. Then you have to figure out what utility companies serve your new location, find out how much they cost and try to pick the one that's not going to put you in the poor house. Whew, that's a lot of work. Fortunately, there's a way to make it easier. And even if you aren't moving, this is a great way to save money where you already live.
We're talking about a site called Allconnect. Simply put in your address and choose what utility you're interested in from TV, Internet, phone, electricity, gas and more. It will show you the services that are available to you at that location and how much they cost. You can pick the service that's going to save you the most money.
If money isn't your only worry, you can do a little extra sorting and research. When you're looking at Internet plans, for example, it can tell you the one with the fastest available speeds. You can also select plans based on technology, from cable to DSL to fiber.
