5G Home Internet Is Here. And, So Are Streaming Services with “Cable Like” 100 channel line-ups, Including Local Networks. That’s great, Because I’ve had it with cable!
Not everything about Streaming is better than Satellite or Cable. And not everyone can replace cable internet access with 5G, but I and millions of others are doing just that. Here’s how that’s been working out for me, and might, for you.
This whole article is long enough, you may wish to jump around:
The question we’re asking: How Much Money Will The Cutting of Cable and Cable Based Internet Save Us?
I think I’ve figured it out. With my move to streaming, and hopefully maintain fast enough internet (if not as fast), I can dramatically reduce my currently crazy spend. I’m looking at reducing the spend $295/mo (and rising), too less than $130/mo. ! I’m not sure 100% until I get my first bill that I’ll be under $130 (with taxes etc.), but my math says the cost for both the Google YouTube TV package, and the internet, work out to about $115, before “taxes and tags.” That makes the $130-$140 total look about right, but “ya neva know!” until you get the bill.
That’s Huge Savings!
True, that estimate of a good bit less than $150/month, doesn’t include my subscriptions to Disney+, Netflix, etc. but then, those weren’t included in my cable costs that I’ve been talking about. I expect my total expense for premium streaming to run about $40-$50/month, based on current pricing, which is also what I’m paying now. My Roku box that feeds my projector system, for example shouldn’t care one bit whether internet is from Xfinity cable or 5G from T-Mobile. Same for my LG OLED TVs
No matter how I slice it, I’ll save roughly $150/month minimum, Xfinity cable and internet, costing almost $300/month to less than $150, for T-Mobile and YouTube TV, sure sounds great to me. Likely that kind of savings sounds great to everyone in the US except cable company executives.
