Financially, going with just internet and a couple streaming services would cut our bill in more than half.
This was a good strategy "before" the end of net neutrality. Netflix has already been bitten into. The have to pay to keep their packets safe as they travel Comcast's wires. Those wires are part of the public spectrum that we let them use in return for their building their network as a public good. Funny how the Supreme Court doesn't care about our rights or the concept of the "Commons". The sweet nectar of other peoples' profits is drawing Comcast and their ilk. It won't be long until the most popular services (of all types) that generate significant web traffic are going to be priced right out of popularity; at least for those of us with modest means. (We should all put a toll gate at the entrance of every street and charge Comcast vans admission if they want to use them. Alternately we could vary the speed limits thus letting Comcast's competitors get to clients on time and within their service windows.)
Comcast and other carriers were given monopoly rights in different areas. In exchange for the rights of a common carrier with net neutrality at the core of those rights they wired everything and competition was squelched. Only the biggest players like phone companies could "purchase" enough of those rights they were guaranteed to also play in these sandboxes.
Township based wireless services, owned and operated by local citizens via their local government were sued out of existence or stillborn when the cable and phone companies rose up and smote them with their deep pockets and lawyers who were not public defender types.
So given this recent history I think it's fair to predict that even if you don't buy "cable" a price similar to cable will be extracted from you one dollar at a time. You can bet Comcast already has you in their sights.
And yes I always tin foil my head everyday before I leave the Faraday cage I live in at home.
