Cable's answer to losing TV subscribers will be to jack up high speed internet rates. And buy out any competition. And raise rates more. Comcast and the like will still control the content delivery methods for a long, long time.
Been saying it for years, but the cord cutting movement so many have taken to, brag about, etc. is NOT going to reduce expenses in the long term. Short term, year. Long term, not a chance.
I switched to 5G home internet through my cell provider and am saving over 50% per month from what Comcast cost. It’s adequate to run at least two video streams at once with no buffering. Only thing I notice is uploading files is a little slower, but I work with video where I have to send large files to the companies I contract with, so I doubt many would notice, and it’s not a big deal for me considering what I save. They say people who do high-end video gaming might notice too, but that’s not me.
So if Comcast thinks they can keep their flagging cable business afloat just by hiking ISP rates, they’re in for a rude awakening.
