Ok I should be there in less than 5 weeks.

How is AT&T mobile service there?

What are Diesel prices like?

Is bio-diesel available there?

What are cable/Internet rates like?

Should help with diesel prices, can tell you about the rest. That is about a 10 hour drive west of most of us.

In TX, Verizon has the best service followed by Att, but don't be surprised if you get dropped calls. Happens alot because of our spotty service in TX for most of the wiresless providers.

Your internet/cable rates will vary depending on what you get and where you are located.

Also, of what provider you go with. TX is large so, all of us have different cable providers. The South has gone to Comcast and the North has mainly gone with Time-Warner. ATT Uverse is great if you have it, which is only a select few places. And the rest are small providers that are new to your surrounding area. Third parties from outside the state.

AT&T is alright. I worked at one of the call centers and got to look at just how many towers there are and it wasn't too impressive. I say Verizon since they're the only ones with 4g coverage. I hear U-Verse is pretty good and it's available in my area lol but I use Time Warner with no complaints really.

Welcome to the Sun City though. I hope you like hot weather and spicy food.
