Charter cable TV
Maybe, but it won't be soon in my opinion.
Wireless is a long way from providing the stability of a hardwired connection. I'd rather see expansion of fiber personally.
I doubt this, although as a guy paying $200/month to Charter I'd join you in the celebration.
I have Verizon, live within 15 miles of Madison, and I can barely make calls in my home. (let alone stream all our video, games, and internet)
And even if I had a solid 4G connection in my home, I'd go through my 4GB on the cell phone plan in a day.
Last, with the recent net neutrality ruling, I believe we're going to see the content streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, etc go up in cost as internet providers upcharge them for their huge bandwidth use.
Long story short- if your cell phone becomes your source of media, your cell phone provider will become your Charter.
As my dad told me all those years ago, "No such thing as a free lunch.".
Charter is SO gone when that becomes feasible.....I can't wait to rip out the cables.....I will dance on their grave, LOL.
Their own fault for not reading the tea leaves.
I believe they have a bare minimum TV package that is much cheaper but they don't advertise it. I asked them and it is next to nothing but your local channels and a couple more.
You can get a bare minimum Dish package for $14.99 for the first 6 months or a year then it goes up to $19.99, of course add tax.
They are all the same, give new customers good deals and then jack up the cost. All you can do is keep switching, let them remove their equipment and get the next one to install theirs for free.
Play their game and switch every year or two.
