12 Sep Are You Satisfied with Slow Internet?
After a hot summer filled with picnics, swim parties and vacations, September seems to be when everyone begins to slow down in anticipation of Fall – even though the first day of autumn isn’t until September 22! Missouri’s humidity is dissipating, kids are back in school, and football season has kicked off.
Right, kids and football… two things which can eat up your Internet bandwidth faster than Carl Edwards driving one lap around the track. It’s about this same time every year you suddenly remember how bogged down your Internet can get in the evening, especially on Sunday nights when your student is rushing to get their homework done for the next day and there’s an exciting NFL match in the lineup. You also remember how every year, you think now is the time to look into options and upgrade to better service.
First, get faster Internet
Not only faster but less expensive! Gigabit fiber Internet can deliver super fast download and upload speeds at approximately the same price as your current cable Internet plan. Imagine having two teenagers writing research papers in their rooms (or procrastinating their paper by playing on Snapchat) while your significant other is streaming the local news, and you’re listening to your favorite station on Spotify as you’re cooking dinner – all without anyone noticing a difference in their online experience.
Now imagine getting your Phynx Fiber bill a few weeks later, with all of this data flowing through your home network, and not having to pay for annoying data overages.
Second, ditch your cable provider
When many common streaming services first became available, one limiting factor was access to live sports. However, this has recently changed as several of the major platforms now offer it in addition to their standard package!
NFL Sunday Ticket is available to DIRECTV NOW subscribers, which gives you access to DIRECTV’s package on common devices like AppleTV, Roku, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Android, iOS and others.
NFL RedZone offers nonstop highlight reels of top games, a favorite of those who participate in fantasy football leagues, and is available on FuboTV, SlingTV and PlayStation Vue.
Monday and Thursday night football may not be available on ESPN+, but can still be watched on the NFL Network streaming on multiple platforms including SlingTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, DIRECTV NOW and PlayStation Vue.
And a subscription to ESPN+, ESPN’s on-demand sports network, gives you access to college football games across the country.
Don’t be satisfied with slow Internet
