Moved from the US about 14 years ago and thought US and in Germany were about the same costs.
Basic German cable TV is included in rent and for English and American TV I stream with a VPN
Landline Telephone with flat rate Germany plus Europe and US Flat, plus flat rate Internet at 50MBps costs me about 40 euros a month
Cell Phone (Handy in German) is Flat rate all phone numbers Germany and Internet 500 then slow down if I go over it costs 35 euros a month with phone included (Samsung G4).
I thought I was paying way too much but after reading above I guess I am getting a good deal.
