Television viewers are abandoning their traditional cable and satellite subscriptions for streaming video services in ever-greater numbers. Cord-cutting households tripled between 2013 and 2018, and nearly a quarter of all U.S. households are expected to join them by 2022.

Plenty of curious viewers are dipping a toe in the water, too—three-quarters of U.S. homes already subscribe to a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu today—while investing in high-speed internet and strong WiFi to get the best experience.

What’s the difference between a WiFi extender and a mesh WiFi system?

Why a mesh WiFi router will make your internet better

By: Jim Beaugez on Jan 27, 2020 8:58:02 AM

Wireless internet routers enabled us to free ourselves from ethernet and coax cables long ago. But as our need for more internet bandwidth has grown with each new convenience, our home networks have gotten more congested.

When you add up all the mobile phones, tablets and laptops floating around your home, then consider the cord-cutting streaming TV services and smart home IoT devices, it’s not hard to see why. Currently in the U.S., there are an average of eight networked, or smart, devices for every person. That number is expected to climb to 13 devices per person by 2022.
