For years cord cutting detractors have pushed the idea that you can’t cut the cord if you get your Internet from a cable or DSL provider. The argument is if you are still paying a company that also owns a traditional pay-TV service its not real cord cutting. But now a growing number of companies are working on internet options that would help you full break free from your cable or DSL internet.
Most cord cutters seem to focus on TV as cord cutting and not home internet. Yet there is a growing trend toward not only cutting the cable TV bill but also the cable Internet bill. Almost every day someone asks us how to lower their Internet bill or if they can use their cellphone for home Internet. The good news is there is a growing push to help you cut the cord on home Internet.
This seems to be the next big step in cord cutting. Now there are a growing number of options for cord cutters to get home internet instead of just DSL and cable. While it may be a slow process, it is starting to happen with 5G and internet from space using Amazon’s and SpaceX’s systems which are likely to be the answer to many cord cutter’s internet frustration.
For sometime now we have hoped that 5G and fixed wireless would be the answer. Fixed wireless and 5G home internet is rolling out but it will take some time before its available nationwide.
Now internet from low earth orbit may dramatically speed up the roll out of a new high-speed Internet to Americans especially in rural America. SpaceX says they hope to have their network live for customers to use in parts of North America next year.
With 5G, fixed wireless, and high-speed internet from low Earth orbit all becoming a reality, soon you will finally be able to fully cancel your cable bill.
The growth of new Internet providers has to be something scaring cable TV executives. For years their hope has been if you cancel TV you will still get internet from them. Many people now have options like Verizon’s 5G home Internet in Houston, TX. Soon SpaceX and Amazon could also be offering high-speed internet from space to challenge the big internet providers.
