Two factors are rapidly taking aim at the so-called duopoly of cable and telco internet providers (although telco has been much smaller in both reach, speed, and bandwidth except for the minimal fiber plants around the country), and most folks have their attention on space based systems like Starlink; however, even at ramped up launches of 120 per month, it may be 3+ years before even most of the US is well covered. Another competitor that is rapidly going to give the cablecos some worry is wireless providers, who have been rolling out 4g systems for well over a year and are now rapidly pushing 5g systems at mid-band and higher frequencies: Specifically TMobile, which has started extensive rollout of the 5g (band 41) 2nd generation wireless home internet. At prices close to half that of cable, at download as well as upload speeds double to quadruple or more (with no caps), cable exec's have to be quaking in their expensive loafers. Comcasts recent extension of caps to the northeast should be seen as truly crazy. Having had to spend almost double for unlimited data for years out west, the recent post-covid price drops have been nice ($120/month to $80 on 100/5 speeds) but recent upgrades of my local towers to 5g/band 41 have me pulling the trigger for 200/35+ @ $50. Some 20 years ago I was on sprint wimax 2.5ghz service for some 5 years and it was great until the local small cableco was bought out by comcast and sprint closed down WiMax service. Is Comcast going to respond? I'm going to give TMobile a try if they don't.
