I don't think I could live without a broadband internet connection. I've lived without a phone before, and I've only watched TV two times in the last two weeks, so those things shouldn't be too hard to give up.

I have to keep the internet connection. Becuase you can use that as a phone too, and TV is something I could live with out.

I picked the telephone.

I don't have broadband at home and I hate how much time I spend watching television. Plus, I talk to my mother almost everyday and she is not so computer savvy -- she would hate it if she couldn't hear my voice.

Id keep my beloved internet connection. Ive had the missery of going two 4 weeks without it when my computer wouldnt work, it was complete hell. So I just bought a new computer which obviously solved the problem.

Telephone? Nah I use msn and aim too talk to people, and my mobile (if thts included as telephone) I use often, but the net is cheaper to talk to people and arrange things in my view.

And like Allan I dont often watch TV. Come to think of it the last time I purposely watched TV was last Thursday, and that was to watch the Simpsons :P

Other then that, I havent watched TV in weeks... seriously.

With some broadband services you can get a telephone and satellite tv all in one package. So you could do all of these things from your computer.

If I had to vote: keep the internet. With AIM/MSN/etc. and most news companies broadcasting stories on the net, the other two may soon be obsolete.

Thats a scary thought!

These days you can talk on the computer and find short films to watch on the computer. I would keep my Broadband. Besides what phone calls do we most often get? Telemarketers. How many times have I found nothing on TV! All I need is my art, my partner and my computer. :P

On a side note, the first company offering cable and satellite television programming on your computer went public this past Friday. You can now watch a television channel on your computer. I imagine others will follow quite soon. chalk another for technology.
