I have cable service, internet only, very fast cable modem and routers. Speeds within the state are good (rarely under 150Mbps), but speeds and especially response times to/from the continent are appallingly bad and got much worse during the pandemic -- getting even 1Mbps each way is rare... The company keeps bugging me online and through physical mail to "upgrade" to TV service in spite of many attempts to stop at least the waste of paper. Can't wait for Starlink service to become available in the state...
