Verizon FIOS is now Frontier Communications 1-877-694-9787 and available in many areas. If Verizon/Frontier does not service your area, check out your local cable company like  Comcast and Time Warner now Spectrum and AT&T at 1-888-774-7153 for UVerse in some areas.   Google is rumored to be installing Fiber and may be available soon.  If you are in a rural area Windstream is also a potential provider.  An alternative in some other areas is HughesNet.


Unfortunately you don't get to pick your Natural Gas service provider.   There's only one for each city or area at this time. If you are in Dallas or Tarrant County, call Atmos first.   If they are not the right provider they can probably recommend the right one.  If you move to Denton or Collin County call CoServ first.

Atmos          1-888-286-6700

CoServ        1-800-274-4014

Mobile - Cell Phone Service

If you haven't switched companies or checked prices in a while, check out Stream Wireless for some great phones and prices. You might also try Republic Wireless that have plans starting at $5/month and $25/month for unlimited service.  If you are off contract and need a nice GSM phone check out the MotoG.  Then choose your carrier and pop in their SIM card.  You might also try Google devices on the Play Store.  You might also see if FreedomPop will work for you. Consumer Cellular has a great reputation and some great plans so check them out too.

I recently switched to Google Project Fi and that saved me a lot of money.

If you have an 800 number or need one and need to reduce the monthly expense?  Check out Kall8.

You should probably visit your local post office and fill out their change of address card in the office, but you can also check out   USPS  online.  If you have a community mailbox the post office will provide you a key.   Even if you get a key from the previous owner, it will likely change the day they put in the notice to change their mail.  Every post office is different.  Some will replace for you at no charge, others want you to buy the lock and have them replace it.  You can order a replacement lock from Amazon.


ADT Free $850 Security System

My favorite local security company is SmithThompson 972-393-2000.  Approximately $16.95/month, no contract, and they also have wireless solutions if you don't have a phone line installed.  I set off lots of alarms in my business and notice they're one of the few who call and call quickly.  There are other national companies around like ADT.   Call 1-866-940-2526 to get connected to ADT.  Brinks and Broadview are now ADT.  If you are a do it yourselfer and can handle some basic installation, check out SimpliSafe at $14.99/month.
