How to Lower Your Internet Bill

September 30, 2021

Let’s face it: in today’s day and age, it is nearly impossible to live without Internet and WiFi. And just because you need to have fast, reliable Internet doesn’t mean you should be paying hundreds of dollars monthly to get it.


Here are a few ways you can do to lower your Internet bill:

  1. Buy your own modem and router

When selecting an Internet service provider, you may have the option to rent your modem and router. However, these ISPs also charge you monthly fees for the rental. Instead, opt for purchasing your modem and router – saving you money in the long run. Oftentimes, these modems and routers can be tailored to your household’s needs like Hitron’s CODA Cable Modem.

  1. Only pay for the speed you need

You may be paying for more Internet than you actually need, or you may not have enough. According to a study by Ookla, the median download speed in the US is 86 Mbps, however, the speed delivered to your door may not be the speeds needed to get a fast Internet connection to all of your connected devices.  Having WiFi boosters such a MoCA network adapters that can increase your speeds and WiFi performance may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

  1. Ask about discounts and promotions

It never hurts to ask your ISP what discounts and/or promotions they can offer – especially if you are a loyal customer.


You may not be able to go without Internet and WiFi, but you can lower your internet bill. Consider buying a router and modem for your home that is fast and reliable instead of renting, and choosing the best speed plan for you.
