So some friends I have online have managed to convince me that cable is evil not to mention expensive. I'm about to finally move out on my own sometime next year and will at least need an internet connection. I'm looking for some ways to get an internet connection without cable. My current plan is to use the mobile hotspot on my phone to access the internet. However my cell phone provider is Verizon and I'm not entirely sure if they are a cable company or not. Also the connection I get on my phone is kind of slow. By the way I mostly use the internet right now for streaming some video and music. Sometimes I'll also get on social media but not very often as I don't like social media that much. Is a mobile hotspot a good cable free alternative for internet.
