One of the biggest questions we get is what internet service should a new cord cutter get. There are many options for home internet and the number of internet providers is growing. So which one should you get? We decided to ask our readers what they used to answer that question. In our survey of over 3000 cord cutters, we asked what type of internet they use for streaming in their homes. The survey showed the following:
- 59.8% use cable internet
- 11.5% use a DSL connection
- 19.2% use fiber internet
- 7.1% use a fixed wireless internet service
- 0.3% use a 5G connection
While cable internet service is still the leader by almost 50%, we’re now seeing other options like fiber and wireless internet gaining popularity among cord cutters.
We’re also keeping an eye on SpaceX and their recent launch of 60 satellites that will hopefully soon be bringing high speed, low cost internet to North America and, eventually, the rest of the world.
What type of internet are you using to stream content? Would you consider switching when new options become more readily available? Let us know in the comments!
