My husband and I were thinking of getting rid of cable and just using streaming services. I thought that this was a good idea but it was not. I heard that people were going online and trying to actually make a difference in their bill like we were and it was actually only a few dollars more to keep the speed that we had. On the getting the best wireless router we could get all of our devices up and going with no lag and that was a lot of items. I have three teens and they are always on devices so to get bumped down to half is not really going to be good for my family. We would not be able to go and do the same things online if we wanted to save a lot of money. In the end, we did not switch because it did not make a difference.
What the cable company also does is they will take away all of the actual speed and charge you to a point for a couple more dollars every month, you could have a lot faster speed. Our internet does go out once in a while and we will lose the connection but I do not believe that this is with all cable companies. I asked my friends who live in town if they were also experiencing the same problems that I was and they said that it was not too bad. I am so happy that we are going to be able to go and spend time with the different service providers to see if they can do something for us. I am in an incredible mood thinking that we could have another service for a lot less money and keeping in the same speed that we have now.
