Expert Advice - Securing Affordable Standalone Internet When You Cut the Cord

Save MoneyAt least a few times a week, I get an email or two asking about internet service. It’s happened so often, in fact, that I added an ISP search engine to my site to help people find internet service deals in their area. The main question?

Which makes sense, right? You get a discount on internet service when you bundle together with pay-TV and landline. So won’t the cable companies try and get their money back when you cut cable and signup for broadband? 

Of course they will. But the truth is that you can still save money and get the internet service you need.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By John, the On-Demand TV Watching Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?

John Tablo cordcutterI was paying $200 per month with Cox Cable. We were spending all that money to spend most of our time channel surfing for something worthwhile to watch. I started cord cutting with a Roku to watch Netflix, Amazon, & Hulu.  After researching OTA DVRs (Tablo and TiVo), I chose to add Tablo for its technology and money saving features.

Specifically, Tablo allows me to upgrade the replaceable hard drive to any size. The Live TV grid guide looks so advanced and polished compared to any cable provider. Access to all of Tablo’s features isn’t free but in comparison to pay TV it’s a great deal. I paid less than $50 for a yearly subscription.
