I searched the topics and recent posts, but wasn’t able to find anything to help, so I apologize if this is has been answered somewhere.
After a month-plus of considering options, I’ve decided to cancel my services with Comcast (currently paying $191/month after fees and such) and just do internet and DirectTV Now. There are two of us in the house, but we both have fairly different schedules, so we’re not often watching TV or using the internet at the same time, except maybe some on weekends.
When I first asked Comcast about dropping cable and switching to streaming, they said that if the two of us are streaming at the same time AND using internet for things like reddit, FB, etc., we’d need at least 250 Mbps internet, which is $82 through Comcast. Given how Comcast’s prices change on a whim, I like the idea of CenturyLink’s “price for life” deal, but the fastest they provide in my area is 140 Mbps. Does this mean CenturyLink is not an option for me?
ETA: I just want to say thank you to this group for being so helpful! I’m sure some of my questions/comments were a little dumb, but I just am not “hip” when it comes to tech. I’m 33, so it’s not like I’m an older person that didn’t grow up with it, but I’ve always been behind the curve of jumping on board, to the point that both my parents had smart phones and Facebook before I did. 😂
