Many of the internet service provider companies has bundled cable TV subscription and landline with the internet service and many a times you have to buy all the three services at the same times and sometimes a third one comes free with the other two but you still have to pay for the rent in the upcoming months. So it could be difficult if you decide to cut off the cable TV subscription and only find the internet service. It would be difficult to find a company that will give access you to internet alone.
