Close To Half Of Cord Cutters Do Not Subscribe To Home Broadband

Fed up with your cable TV? Tired of paying for an expensive satellite package you barely use? You’re not alone: Up to 15 percent of Americans have cut the cord for OTT video services, joining the 9 percent who have never had a cable or satellite TV subscription.

Altogether, that’s roughly a quarter of the country that can be called “cord-cutters” or “cord-nevers,” according to the Pew Research Center, which published a fresh survey of consumer patterns Monday.

Buried in those results, however, is one statistic that sheds some important new light on the future of television: A huge share of cord-cutters don’t even have home broadband.

Pew’s study on cord-cutting tracks closely with reports by business analysts. From telecom companies to cable firms to satellite providers, the pay-TV industry as a whole is seeing an exodus of TV customers.
