Comcast Has a New Plan to Fight Cord Cutting: Don’t Sell Them High Speed Internet…

Comcast has a new plan to fight cord cutting. This week BoingBoing is reporting that Comcast is no longer selling their fastest internet plans to customers who also don’t subscribe to a TV package.

You can still get internet from Comcast, but their fastest plans are being limited to customers who also have a TV subscription. The good news is cord cutters do not need the fastest internet package. Even the 60 Mbps down package will let you stream twelve HD Netflix streams at once.

With competition starting to come to home internet services from fixed wireless services, 5G, and fiber services you have to ask how long Comcast can keep this up. As competition floods in and DSL improves their service Comcast is pushed to limiting customers from accessing their fastest plans. This could just speed up the rate that customers move to other ISPs.

One thing that is important to remember is if all you want to do is stream services like Netflix you do not need the fastest internet option offered in most areas.
