The right home network installation enables you to do more with your devices and ditch your cable provider

More Americans than ever are getting rid of their cable TV providers, and it’s easy to see why. Cable companies generally provide abysmal customer service, regional monopolies mean there’s little price competition, and you may not even get the network speeds you’re paying for.

There are some challenges that remain when it comes to cord cutting. Relying on the Internet for your entertainment needs requires a network that can handle all the data your family will be using around your home. This is particularly true of your home wireless network, and today we’ll look at both the opportunities and challenges of cord-cutting if you live in Pompano Beach, FL.
