Yes, since I do pay for (required) basic cable line. A few years ago, when I moved into my flat, you couldn’t get unbundled cable internet and/or fiber. Admittedly, unbundled DSL and/or cable seems to have become broadly available over the last couple of years, from what I am seeing now. I might have been a bit behind the curve there, I guess. I haven’t looked much into it, because in my case, I don’t think I have a choice anyway:
- There’s no phone line to my flat
- There’s no fiber to the home either
- The local company is the only available cable internet, from what I can see
Also, I’ve not had great experience with DSL over copper anyways, cable internet has been more reliable.
On the flip side, I am getting free cable TV (DVC-C), which I can legally record, save, archive - and watch anytime, anywhere. With skipping the commercials.
Fiber7 includes TV streaming over IP. But no recording facility or skipping the commercials, if I’m correctly understanding their web site. Wingo seems to be 49 CHF + 5 for TV. Though you’re locked into their system, I suppose? Same for Salt Fiber, I think? It’s tempting for the speed, but unavailable at my location anyway.
