If you’re unfamiliar with your options after cutting the cable cord, you may be hesitant to make the transition. However, the team at Cable Alternatives can answer all of your questions to maximize your understanding and confidence in cutting the cord. We’ll address the questions customers frequently ask before switching from cable to an internet-based entertainment alternative.


How do I access wifi after cutting the cord and how much does it cost?

You may have gotten your wifi as a package deal that was bundled with your cable. You can access the internet for a more affordable price by subscribing to a stand-alone internet service. This can cost around $50 per month depending on the internet speed you select. You can also bundle your wifi with a landline phone provider if you prefer.


What internet speed is recommended after cutting the cord?

Your ideal internet speed is largely dependent on the number of people in your household and the activities you use the internet for. For example, if you have a larger family who all intends to stream their shows and movies, you should opt for an internet speed of 25 MB/s or more. Alternatively, if you are the only person in your household, you will only need an internet speed of 12 MB/s.


Can I hire someone to help me with my wifi after cutting the cord?

You can hire someone to assist you with cutting the cord and transitioning to a different wifi plan. In fact, the team at Cable Alternatives can assist you with all of your cord-cutting requirements. Our team is trained and experienced with wifi subscriptions and installation. We’ll make sure your home is ready to supply your entertainment needs.


Is it better to rent or purchase a modem?

Oftentimes, an internet company will give you the option to lease a modem through your subscription. However, they will typically charge a few dollars extra each month. The most financially efficient option is to purchase your modem. That way you will have the modem for years to come, making it a worthwhile investment.
