Advertisements Agreed. The cable company where I live has a monopoly for both cable tv and Internet services. Their internet service monthly cost drops based on what cable tv packages you subscribe to. I have run the numbers and the best I can do is break even by dropping cable and have my monthly internet service increase. People I work with live in developments where both Comcast and Verizon fiber are available. Many of them switch every few years when specials are available from the other carrier. Good for them. I still like where we live and part of that means no choice for cable or Internet. That’s life.
