You buy your home broadband from a company and then you install it on your home.
You have the choice of a fixed or variable rate.
And you have the option of a pay-as-you-go (PASG) plan, meaning the cost is not shared by you and the company.
The fixed rate usually comes with a fixed monthly rate and a monthly cap.
For the variable rate, you can choose a variable rate over time and the cap can be raised.
What are the pros and cons of a PASG plan?
Pros PASGs offer a lower upfront cost than a fixed rate, and you get the benefit of the lower monthly rate.
If you don’t need the fixed rate for a long time, you’ll save money over the life of the PASg contract.
They are also cheaper than other fixed broadband options such as cable TV and satellite TV.
Cons They are not as easy to upgrade as fixed rates.
They’re only available in select regions.
There’s no monthly cap to cap your monthly cost.
