The Battle for America’s Internet
Competition has increased significantly for home internet. T-Mobile and AT&T are dominating port out activity thanks to 5G and fiber overbuilds. Even Verizon Wireless has joined the party with their wireless home internet offering. Cable is busy swimming upstream.
December 20, 2022

As cable loses ground to fixed wireless internet and fiber overbuilds, the story going forward will not be if customers switch ISPs, but when.

Over the next six months, about 1 out of 4 customers are considering switching internet providers. In fact, it has already begun in certain areas with wireless operators invading cable’s home turf. For example, T-Mobile currently controls only a sliver of the market, but is expected to win the coming ISP turnover in a big way; AlphaROC’s data shows striking gains in not only rural areas, but in urban and suburban areas as well. Of course, cable reigns for the time being, but a cutthroat future awaits as regional comparisons highlight many more options for switchers.
