Why don't businesses "cut the cord" the way consumers have?
SilverHawk 2 years ago
Consumers have embraced "cutting the cord", and many have eliminated their cable and telephone bills through use of cell phones, VOiP and streaming media. In fact, I was thinking about this before coming in to the office today while watching an episode of Clannad (weakness for Anime admitted) on Netflix and talking to my girlfriend on my iPhone. I have saved almost $2000 per year by canceling Cable TV and landline, with no real impact other than having to hang out with friends at the local pub to watch a few football games.
Why haven't business done the same? The cost savings would be substantial, and after a short period of adjustment, I can't point to anything in my daily life that has suffered as a result, college football championship games excepted.
