Maybe It’s Time to Give DSL a Second Try




Internet is at the backbone of many cord cutting options, but, sadly, when you downgrade from a package deal to just Internet cable companies will refuse to give you any type of deal. Often long-term cable customers will find themselves paying double or more of what a new customer will pay.

Yet many people think they have no option and do not shop around for other services. Much of this comes from the idea that DSL is too slow to stream. The truth is that is just not true for most Americans.

I use DSL at my house and to run Cord Cutters News. Back when I lived in Missouri, DSL was faster than what the local cable company had to offer. In a growing list of areas DSL offers 100 Mbps down or faster and even has fiber options for crazy fast speeds in some markets.

Also remember there are more DSL providers than just the big names. If you live in an area with AT&T, take a look at It resells AT&T Internet with no data caps and customer service right here in the United States. So make sure to check around.

Remember cable companies are the experts at pressure sales and saying anything to get a sale. Don’t let them trick you into being scared of DSL.

Plus, you can always switch back to cable Internet. Every few years I switch to get the best deal. That way I am always treated like a new customer and get the best new deal.
