Sonic Internet vs AT&T Internet

Fees and fine printCompare plans

AT&T is one of the largest internet providers in California, while Sonic is a smaller provider that operates specifically in the Bay Area.

Sonic is widely regarded as the better choice, thanks to their local customer service and ultra-high fiber speeds around San Francisco.

However, both have widespread fiber service in the Bay Area, and ultimately I recommend you simply pick whichever one has fiber at your address (you can tell because the top speed offered will be around 1,000 Mbps instead of only 5–25 Mbps).

You can check your address for fiber internet for both providers online:

As for TV options, AT&T has overhauled their TV plans as of 2021, and moved almost everything over to a streaming service called AT&T TV. The main draw is that it has regional sports networks like Fox, which currently aren’t available from other streaming services unless you pick up a traditional cable TV bundle.

Sonic doesn’t have a TV service, but you can get AT&T TV on it’s own and stream over Sonic fiber, if you want to access regional sports and live TV.

However, AT&T is likely to be faster if you’re elsewhere in California, including Los Angeles. While Sonic is “available” in Los Angeles and other cities outside the Bay Area, they provide service using leased AT&T lines in those areas. You’ll see this advertised as “Fusion IPBB” or “IPBB” Sonic internet.

Contract termsContract-freeContract required for cheapest price

The challenge with comparing Sonic and AT&T is that they both have very different speeds depending on your address. We recommend that you check your address directly with both providers, and make a decision based on the fastest speed at your addressnot on the contents of general online reviews.

AT&T vs Sonic Data Usage Policies

Many internet providers in California use data caps to manage their network, meaning that if you use more than a certain amount of data, you will be charged extra on top of your monthly bill.

Sonic has long provided unlimited service, even before it started to become the norm for competitive ISPs. Therefore, we recommend Sonic if you’re a cord-cutter or work from a home office.

AT&T does not have data caps in California. Sonic offers unlimited plans with no data caps.

AT&T vs Sonic Net Neutrality Policies

Sonic is well-known for promoting consumer privacy and supporting Net Neutrality. Most noteably, Sonic challenged the court order for them to turn over private information on WikiLeaks volunteer Jacob Appelbaum in 2011. 1

AT&T has a less encouraging stance on the topic, and historically has participated in lobbyist groups that promote anti-regulatory and pro-incumbent (ILEC) policies at the state and national level.

AT&T has a statement of support for Net Neutrality on their policy website, but has remained quiet on the topic of future paid prioritization for certain services.

AT&T Net Neutrality statement

Sonic is one of the loudest pro-Net-Neutrality voices among US internet providers. The company has actively taken steps to protect user privacy and preserve Net Neutrality.

Sonic IPBB vs Sonic Fiber

Sonic service has two basic categories:

  1. Sonic DSL (IPBB) service resold on AT&T DSL lines
  2. Sonic Fiber-to-the-Home internet using their own fiber lines.

IPBB service is best for customers who are frustrated with AT&T and/or their local cable company, and want to reduce their price or have a more pleasant customer service experience. It’s worth considering for California residents in locations where AT&T and basic cable are the only option.

AT&T vs Sonic internet.

Fiber is almost always the best option, provided you’re in a neighborhood with coverage. As of 2020, Sonic has been expanding around the Bay Area and to new neighborhoods in San Francisco.

When comparing Sonic to Xfinity, it’s important to check if you are in their fiber area or not, as this obviously makes the comparison completely different.

AT&T vs Sonic Pricing and Fees

Here is a breakdown of how common add-on fees compare for AT&T and Sonic plans. These types of fees are common with internet providers, and can result in larger bill each month.

Price increasesBill increases after promo periodBill increases after promo period
Early Termination FeeFree cancellationFree cancellation

Note that fee amounts described above may vary by plan. See the plan comparison tables for AT&T and Sonic below for more information.

While Xfinity is fairly open to allowing customers to use their own WiFi equipment (and save the router fee each month), Sonic requires that you use their router (or rather, the AT&T router) for IPBB “Fusion” plans. They sometimes allow legacy DSL customers to use their own device, but it depends to some degree on the location — and regardless, they don’t guarantee speeds or support when you forego their approved equipment lease.

Sonic fiber service requires that you lease the router. With all plans, you’re welcome to use your own router (or a mesh network like Eero) on top, by putting the stock router in bridge mode.

However, you cannot avoid the equipment fee, as you can with Xfinity, by foregoing the equipment. With this in mind, we recommend that most Sonic customers should simply use the Sonic equipment, since it comes with advanced support and free service visits.

AT&T vs Sonic Internet-Only Plan Comparison

Most Common PlanInternet speedSign-up priceFinal priceAvg price over 2 yrs
Fiber Internet 500 (AT&T)500 Mbps$45/mo.$65/mo.$55/mo.
Fusion X1 (Sonic)20 Mbps$39.99/mo.$49.99/mo.$44.99/mo.

View AT&T Internet Plans →View Sonic Plans →

The price of the AT&T Fiber Internet 500 internet plan is $45/month for the first Contract-Free. However, the price then rises 44% to a final price of $65.

So, that means the price you actually pay for internet, averaged over two years, is $55/month.

Remember that Fiber Internet 500 includes the following fees when you compare pricing:

  • $10/month fee for WiFi equipment

Let’s compare that to Sonic:

The price of the Sonic Fusion X1 internet plan is $39.99/month for the first 12. However, the price jumps up 25% to $49.99 after that initial period.

So, the price of Sonic internet is actually $44.99/month, when averaged over two years.

Fusion X1 comes with some fees as well:

  • $9.50/month fee for WiFi equipment
  • Early termination fee if you break the contract

AT&T vs Sonic Internet Plans

AT&T and Sonic plans are similar in that your experience depends greatly on the maximum speed at your location.

AT&T Internet Plans

AT&T recently launched tiered plans, which means that the pricing has become extremely affordable at the lower end, even for broadband fiber plans. The price has gone up for gigabit plans, but most homes will be more than served by the mid-range fiber plans.

Plan NameDownload SpeedPromo PriceFinal Price

View AT&T Internet Plans →

Sonic Internet Plans

Sonic has some of the best pricing for fiber in the state of California, but their plans come with an odd quirk — they require you to purchase landline phone service as part of the deal. While it’s still very cheap, it’s an odd move in 2020 when many customers (especially fiber customers) have no use for a landline phone (even if it is a high-quality VoIP setup).

That said, it doesn’t impact the pricing, so we don’t consider it a negative on value. It’s common for customers to simply not use it, or use it as a second line for personal or business purpose.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Sonic Fiber better than AT&T Fiber?

Sonic has higher overall customer ratings on third-party platforms than AT&T, thanks to their status as a local company with local customer service. Both companies offer high-speed fiber to the home internet at comparable prices. As a rule, one location will not have access to both AT&T and Sonic, so our recommendation is that you go with whichever of the two providers has fiber to the home service at your address.

Is Sonic internet fiber or DSL?

Sonic is primarily a fiber internet provider, with an extensive fiber network in the San Francisco bay area that is still growing as of 2020. They also offer IPBB service using AT&T lines, meaning that if you have access to AT&T IPBB service, you can choose to get Sonic instead for a different customer experience and price. IPBB is a term used by both AT&T and Sonic to describe hybrid fiber-DSL internet service. It is similar to DSL, but with faster speeds up to 100 Mbps download.

Is Sonic cheaper than AT&T?

Sonic and AT&T plan pricing changes regularly. Sonic has the lowest overall pricing in the bay area for gigabit fiber internet when you factor in tiered pricing and fees, and includes a landline VoIP phone at no additional cost. AT&T will be cheaper if you can accept a lower speed bracket for the discount.

Sonic vs Comcast Xfinity Internet Service

Fees and fine printCompare plans

Sonic internet is the preferred choice for power users thanks to the upload speeds, but if you’re in a DSL service area Xfinity is usually the more affordable choice for speeds of 100 Mbps or higher.

Sonic is a California-based internet provider known for local customer service and a growing fiber-to-the-home service area. Comcast Xfinity needs no introduction, as the brand is practically synonymous with the word “cable” for most Californians.

Xfinity is the second-largest cable provider in California, with most of their coverage in the northern part of the state. Because of this, they overlap widely with Sonic, who has a coverage area comprising 7% of the California population.

Sonic vs Xfinity Data Usage Policies

Many internet providers in California use data caps to manage their network, meaning that if you use more than a certain amount of data, you will be charged extra on top of your monthly bill.

Sonic does not have data caps in California. Xfinity uses data caps on some plans. 1.2TB is a common data limit for Xfinity plans.

Sonic offers internet plans with unlimited data

Xfinity places data caps on some plans.

Unlike Sonic, Xfinity Internet places a Terabyte (1TB) cap on your monthly data usage. (They’ve recently upped the allowance to 1.2TB in some markets.)

While 1TB is more than most households will use, it can be problematic for home offices and cord-cutter customers, who may need high bandwidth for streaming 4K and moving large files regularly. Xfinity claims that the average user only uses 308GB per month, however critics view the policy as a way to encourage customers to purchase TV plans directly rather than streaming from Netflix. 1

With that in mind, unlimited data usage is one of sonic’s best selling points.

For customers who go over the limit on Xfinity plans, they offer additional data packets for $10 per 50GB.

Sonic vs Xfinity Net Neutrality Policies

Sonic is one of the loudest pro-Net-Neutrality voices among US internet providers. The company has actively taken steps to protect user privacy and preserve Net Neutrality.

Sonic Net Neutrality statement

Comcast has a public statement of support for Net Neutrality on their corporate website, but have removed some promises on the page related to paid prioritization of traffic in recent years.

Sonic vs Xfinity Pricing and Fees

Here is a breakdown of how common add-on fees compare for Sonic and Xfinity plans. These types of fees are common with internet providers, and can result in larger bill each month.

FeeSonicXfinity
WiFi equipment fee~$9.50/mo.~$14/mo.

Note that fee amounts described above may vary by plan. See the plan comparison tables for Sonic and Xfinity below for more information.

See the chart above for a breakdown of how the average price paid over time compares, accounting for promotional pricing used by both Xfinity and Sonic.

Overall, Xfinity offers some of the cheapest Internet plans in California, with services starting at $29.99 per month. Also, these plans offer more-than-decent speeds for the price. However, these prices aren’t standard, and they could vary based on location. Thankfully, for Californians, Xfinity prices on the West Coast are usually lower than on the East Coast.

As far as fees go, you will be charged $89.99 if you opt for professional installation. You can opt to install things yourself using Xfinity’s self-installation kit, which is usually $15. In some cases, you may find a deal on it or get it for free. Some other fees you could be charged include activation fees and early termination fees.

Sonic vs Xfinity Equipment and Installation

Xfinity installation

To install Xfinity Internet, you may have to buy or lease Xfinity equipment. If your house isn’t prewired, Xfinity will install a cable line for you. Xfinity provides you (for a fee) a cable modem if you do not already own one.

Xfinity also offers the xFi Gateway router and modem combo device, which comes with parental controls and a simple Wi-Fi management setup. The monthly rental fee for the router is $14.

Otherwise, you could use your own router and other equipment compatible with Xfinity services. However, if you choose to use your own equipment, you may lose access to Xfinity tech support or specific Xfinity Wi-Fi features.

Sonic installation

Sonic installation is very different depending on if you are buying their Fiber or IPBB/DSL service.

If you’re getting the IPBB service, this means they’re using AT&T lines. In most cases, it’ll be an AT&T tech who shows up to do the installation, which can be confusing.

Sonic router options.

The best experience with Sonic installation is for fiber customers. Fiber installs are done with 100% Sonic equipment and staff, and has a better reputation for showing up on time and respecting the needs of the property in regards to drilling holes for wires and placing the equipment.

Xfinity vs Sonic Contract Terms

Xfinity contract requirements

Almost all Xfinity plans require a 1–2 year contract.

This means that if you decide to cancel service, you’ll have to pay a fee of $5–10 per month for each month left in the contract.

However, Xfinity allows customers to choose contract-free service on any plan — with the caveat that they charge an extra $10+ per month for contract-free service.

So, ultimately, this only makes sense if you know for a fact you’ll be cancelling after three months or so, e.g. for a short-term sublet or summer residence.

Sonic contract requirements

Sonic requires a one-year contract for all plans, including their fiber plans. While the fee is structured so that you’ll never pay more than $149 for cancelling the contract, this is still an annoyance that most small internet providers have dropped by 2020.

The exception here is that they will let you try fiber service for 30 days with no contract. This only applies for fiber-to-the-home service, though.

They also offer to buy out existing contracts in their fiber footprint.

Our view is that given the ultra low-cost service offered by Sonic relative to the speed, the contract is a reasonable protection for them — but some other providers in the Sonic footprint such as AT&T have dropped them, and we hope that Sonic will do the same in the future.

Sonic vs Xfinity Coverage Areas

Xfinity has virtually 100% coverage in San Francisco, while providers like Sonic are viewed as alternative ISPs with more niche offerings and smaller coverage areas.

Sonic fiber map permits.

Sonic has been expanding rapidly in the Bay Area with their fiber services, so this map doesn’t represent the full picture. But it’s an interesting display of how issues facing the provider such as permits and microtrenching regulation in San Francisco have made it difficult for them to invest in fiber to the home services that consumers clearly want.

The price of the Sonic Fusion X1 internet plan is $39.99/month for the first 12. However, the price then rises 25% to a final price of $49.99.

So, that means the price you actually pay for internet, averaged over two years, is $44.99/month.

Remember that Fusion X1 includes the following fees when you compare pricing:

  • $9.50/month fee for WiFi equipment
  • Early termination fee if you break the contract

Let’s compare that to Xfinity:

The price of the Xfinity Performance Pro+ internet plan is $49.99/month for the first 1 Year. However, the price jumps up 40% to $70 after that initial period.

So, the price of Xfinity internet is actually $60/month, when averaged over two years.

Performance Pro+ comes with some fees as well:

  • $14/month fee for WiFi equipment
  • Fees for using more than 1 TB

Xfinity’s plan options are relatively consistent within California. Sonic, however, varies wildly when it comes to speed and network type.

When comparing plans, you should first check to see if you’re in a Sonic fiber service area. If you can’ get Sonic’s 1000 Mbps fiber service, stop reading and sign up. It’s one of the best prices for fiber in the country at this time, and the upload speeds are many multiples of what Xfinity offers. (The only Xfinity plan with 1,000 Mbps upload speeds costs almost $300/month. Yes, you read that right — and even their Gigabit plan only goes up to 35 Mbps upload.)

If you are only able to get Sonic’s DSL service, it can still be a good option — but Xfinity is generally cheaper and will be faster to install in a lot of buildings due to cable wiring being the norm for apartments and rentals in the area.

Sonic Internet Plans

Sonic has three different types of network, which will depend on your location in California:

  • Fusion (DSL/LAN): Delivered over ADSL2+ or VDSL, based on how close your location is to Sonic’s Central Office.
  • FTTN (Fiber-To-The-Node): Delivered using AT&T’s IPBB network.
  • Fiber (Fiber-To-The-Home): Sonic uses its own fiber-optic infrastructure to deliver Gigabit Fiber.

The plans are as follows, with the 1,000 Mbps plan being their fiber network:

Plan NameDownload SpeedPromo PriceFinal Price
Fusion X120 Mbps$39.99/mo$49.99
Fusion X240 Mbps$59.99/mo$69.99
Fusion Fiber1000 Mbps$40/mo$50

Like Xfinity, Sonic doesn’t require a contract for plans — but you are required to sign a contract if you want the cheapest price. Expect to pay $10+ extra per month in order to avoid a contract.

Note the prices mentioned above come tagged with a 12 or 24-month contract. Most plans will allow you to remove the contract for an additional $10–20/month.

Availability and offers vary by location. Your region may even have more plans to choose from. Also, if you get on board with Xfinity contract-free, your monthly prices will increase. Equipment fees and other applicable charges may get added to your monthly bill too.

If you would like to go no-contract because you have a move coming ahead and do not want to foot premature termination fees, the following are your no-contract plan options:

Sonic in California: Background

Originally called Sonoma Interconnect, Sonic is a Santa Rosa-based Internet and telecommunication company with a strong presence in California, which includes San Francisco, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. It’s independent, local, and pro-privacy. Several Bay Area Sonic customers are served courtesy of AT&T cables. Therefore, if you’re in the region and use Sonic Internet, you could have a wireless router with fancy AT&T branding on it.

Sonic has been DSL reliant ever since its inception. In 2008, it started rolling out ADSL2+, the faster variant of DSL, thereby offering speeds comparable to cable Internet. Thanks to its phone service license that it procured from California’s PUC (Public Utilities Commission) in 2006, Sonic added voice calling to its services as an option.

Sonic then made the jump to FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) and contacted its DSL subscribers thereafter with a hard-to-resist offer: promising speeds five times their existing speed for identical prices. Despite being a small firm, Sonic has been able to roll out fiber connections in California at affordable prices by leveraging its DSL and phone customer base.

Xfinity in California: Background

Besides basic internet service, Xfinity also throws in a few added benefits such as Norton Security Suite for protection against online viruses, identity theft, etc. If you’re on the go in California, Xfinity’s reliable Wi-Fi hotspots across cities in the state can come in quite handy. These hotspots comprise a mix of hotspots set up in public areas and businesses.

Xfinity uses new customer discounts to entice new customers, just like Sonic. This means that you’ll have to call in and ask for an Xfinity existing customer deal each year to keep the pricing low.

Xfinity vs Sonic Customer Service

Customer service is where Sonic makes the case for your business — and given Comcast’s reputation on this topic, it’s an important part of the service.

Sonic consistently receives strong reviews, particularly among techies who appreciate the access to company tech support, and even the CEO Dane Jasper who is active on Twitter.

Call wait times are low compared to Xfinity, and you’re more likely to reach a rep who knows your neighborhood and can provide relevant assistance.

One of the major reasons most people might opt for a Sonic plan over Xfinity’s services is the latter’s lackluster or almost non-existent customer service. Xfinity is not known for its after-sales support. Xfinity’s telephone support is particularly notorious for being time-consuming and unpleasant, and generally not based in the US at all.

If you have an Xfinity store in your locality, visiting the store in person to address your concerns is a better option. This is one area where Xfinity has the advantage, as Sonic is a smaller company without the budget for hundreds of brick-and-mortar customer care centers.

Sonic vs Xfinity Bundled Services

Another area where Xfinity has the edge is cable TV service. As a DSL/Fiber operator, and a small company, Sonic does not have TV bundle options at this time.

Xfinity is a media company as much as an internet provider, and offers a wide range of TV services along with internet. If you are intimidated by “cord cutting” and need sports and premium TV channels for your household, Xfinity is the only option for bundled plans.

Xfinity bundle plans often offer perks like free installation and a discount on the internet or WiFi feee.

However, most people can save money by simply “cutting the cord” and getting their TV through over-the-top services such as Netflix, Roku, Hulu, etc.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is Sonic cheaper than Xfinity?

Xfinity has the absolute cheapest plans with entry-level cable pricing around $30 for basic broadband. Sonic has the best price-per-Mbps, when you consider their gigabit fiber plans compared to Xfinity's gigabit cable, which costs around $100 per month. This is twice the cost of Sonic's fiber service.

Xfinity vs Sonic for home offices

Xfinity and Sonic are both useable for home offices, although Sonic has more requirements for provisioning business-class plans. If you need a dedicated IP, SLA, and other business-class features, Xfinity will be easier to set up. Sonic customer service is local and techie-friendly, but it's worth mentioning that Comcast Business service is separate from Xfinity residential service and has much higher response times.

Is Sonic or Xfinity better for TV?

Xfinity lets you easily bundle cable TV and high-speed Internet. The Preferred XF Double Play package, for instance, offers you more than 220 channels and 150Mbps Internet. Sonic has no TV bundle plans, but the internet connection is not capped in terms of data usage. Therefore, it is recommended for cord cutters.

Sonic (ISP)

Sonic is a telecommunications company and internet service provider based in Santa Rosa, California, acting as a competitive local exchange carrier in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and Los Angeles.[2][3]

History[edit]

Sonic began as an effort to bring network connectivity and Internet access to staff and students at the campus of Santa Rosa Junior College. In 1994, Sonic began formal Internet operations by way of a partnership between Dane Jasper and Scott Doty, both of whom had worked on the network at Santa Rosa Junior College.[4] In 1995, Sonic moved into its downtown Santa Rosa location.[5]

In 2011, after becoming concerned about increasing legal requests for users' data, mostly related to copyright infringement involving pornography, Sonic cut the time it stores logs of user activity to two weeks.[6][7]

Later in 2011, the U.S. government forced Sonic and Google to turn over e-mail addresses of people who had corresponded with WikiLeaks volunteer and Tor developer Jacob Appelbaum. Sonic and Google fought the secret court order, which CEO Dane Jasper characterized as "rather expensive, but the right thing to do," and the court agreed to lift the seal on the Sonic order to give Appelbaum a copy of it.[8][9]

In 2012, Jasper told TorrentFreak that Sonic will not be participating in the so-called "six strikes" plan, in which major U.S. Internet service providers will begin to warn and punish people suspected of infringing copyrights, saying that ISPs are not equipped to police the actions of individuals, and that the MPAA and RIAA have not invited small, independent ISPs to participate.[10]

In late 2014, Sonic.net rebranded as Sonic, after acquiring sonic.com and @sonic twitter handle.[11]

In April 2015, the company partnered with AT&T to expand service, using fiber-to-the-node. Due to this partnership, Sonic customers have to follow AT&T policies, including any access given to the federal government. Sonic customers can utilize a VPN to avoid AT&T policies and Sonic requests court orders for any investigations requested by the law.[12]

In December 2018, Sonic announced a partnership with eero inc., creator of the first whole-home WiFi mesh system, to improve WiFi connectivity across the entire home.[13][14]

Services[edit]

Sonic offers a number of services including:

  • 10 Gigabit Fiber – business product[1]
  • Gigabit Fiber – combined voice (VoIP) and data service offering up to 1,000Mbit/s per line using Passive Optical Networking,[1] with unlimited nationwide land line voice. Sonic has full control of the line: subscribers are on Sonic's IP space. Available in select markets, currently only Northern California locations.[15]
  • Fusion ADSL2+ – combined voice (POTS) and data service offering up to 20Mbit/s per line, with unlimited nationwide land line voice. Sonic has full control of the line: subscribers are on Sonic's IP space.
  • Fusion VDSL2 – combined voice (POTS) and data service offering up to 75Mbit/s[16] with the same limitations as Fusion ADSL2+. This subscription is served from a CO where Sonic has full control of the line cards and therefore remove any artificial limitation in speed that a subscriber can get. The requirement for getting this service is an individual has to be relatively close to the CO, up to 4000 feet.[17] X2 is also available which will roughly double the speed.
  • Fusion FTTN (VDSL2) – combined voice (VoIP) and data service offering from 20Mbit/s up to 75bit/s through bonding (X2), with unlimited nationwide land line voice. This is resold AT&T U-verse. Single pair connection is limited to 50Mbit/s even if the line is capable of more than that; bonded pair is limited to 75bit/s. Sonic has some control of the line such as not enforcing transfer caps, but customers are on AT&T's IP space. VoIP connection defaults to G.729ab[18] and uses less than 50 Kbps.[19]
  • FlexLink – midband Ethernet service offering symmetric speeds from 1.5Mbit/s to 500Mbit/s.
  • AT&T DSL – ADSL service delivered over an AT&T voice line. This service is obsolete and Sonic is no longer accepting legacy ADSL1 subscriptions.
  • Hosting – website hosting services.
  • Colocation – datacenter colocation in Santa Rosa, CA.

What is cord-cutting?

The liberating process of canceling cable and choosing what you want to watch, all while saving money.

Millions of people are ditching cable and streaming content through their internet — and they aren’t looking back. Through the power of your internet, you can watch live TV, stream the newest (or oldest) movies, and do it for cheaper than your current cable provider. Although cable companies would have you believe that you get less from streaming, we’re here to show you that not only can you get more, but you can get more for less.

Your streaming can be as simple or diverse as you want it. It is entirely up to you. That’s cord-cutting.

In this guide, we will guide you through the world of cord-cutting. Cord-cutting isn’t as scary as the cable companies make it out to be. All the features of traditional cable are still available to you, and we’ll show you how, albeit a phone, computer, or from the comfort of your TV.

We’ve got you covered.

Yearly average savings from cutting the cord:
$1,236

Why cut the cord?

We’ve all been there. You receive the outrageous cable bills in the mail, sometimes with unspecified or hidden fees. You call customer service for a simple fix only to be led from person to person, wasting valuable time, that would end in a disconnected call. We’ve all thought: there has to be a better way.

There is. And millions of people around the world are doing it every day. I’m talking about three little words: “Cutting - the - cord.” Cutting the cord gives you the freedom to watch what you want when you want.

Cutting the cord means you don’t pay for a bunch of channels you don’t want. Cutting the cord means saving money. Cutting the cord means you have the freedom and flexibility of streaming your entertainment!

Price

Saving money is one of the primary reasons for cord-cutting. Why pay for cable TV when almost all the same content is available for less? Save money by paying for exactly what you want. Many internet streaming services offer comparable bundles to cable without the bloated extra channels and cost.

Convenience

Watch what you want, when you want, and on any device. You have complete freedom! Gone are the days of slogging through 700+ channels. You’ll never miss a beat of action when you watch championship games on the go. Most importantly, you get to decide when you watch your favorite programs — they are all in one place.

Content

Get rid of the cable box without getting rid of your shows and live television! With streaming, the hottest TV shows and movies, local, national, and international sports are at your fingertips!

How do I cut the cord?

Cutting the cord to cable is easy as 1-2-3 (with a bonus step)

Once you break the chains of your old cable provider, you now have the freedom to choose a streaming method for watching TV! The beautiful thing about streaming is that there is a method for everybody.

Smart TV icon

Smart TVs

Almost all modern TVs are “smart TVs.” That means that they can connect to the internet, download apps, and stream videos and music! Pretty cool, huh? Plus, if you have access to an antenna, you can access free HD television over the airwaves to go with all the excellent streaming services at your disposal!

Streaming devices icon

Streaming Devices

In recent years the competition for streaming devices has become fierce! These compact devices are easy to hook up (plug into your TV), navigate, and have tons of features. Some of the most popular streaming devices are the Amazon Firestick, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Roku Streaming Stick. For being so small, they sure do pack a big punch! They can stream 4K television and movies, support voice commands, and can even link to other services like Amazon Alexa or Google Asisstant.

Gaming systems icon

Gaming Systems

Videogame systems aren’t just for gaming anymore. Gaming systems can stream live TV, download apps, movies, and games. Right now, the most prominent brands in gaming are Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo.

Streaming Devices

As we said before, when it comes to streaming devices, there is no shortage of options! While we won’t be able to go over every single device in detail, we can at least get you started with some of the more popular options.

Note: It isn’t necessary, but one point to consider is the “ecosystem” in which your device fits in. Do you have a lot of Apple products? What about Amazon or Google? For some, keeping their products together on the same “ecosystem” is essential, as they will be able to work with one another seamlessly.

Can your cable do this?

TV is changing. It starts with the internet.

You cut the cord and go looking for all the stuff you used to like to watch on TV. You find most of it. All’s right with the world.

What may surprise you is the sheer amount of stuff that’s not on cable. We’re not talking about direct-to-DVD movies or after school specials, either. We’re talking about high-quality produced shows that never went looking for a network deal because they don’t fit into cable TV’s time-worn mold.
