Some good friends of mine have dropped cable TV along with their High Speed internet. Went with OTA and use their smart phones for internet.
I can see dropping cable or satellite TV, but trying to do all my web surfing with a smartphone with be tough. Perhaps a derivitive of that would be to use a hotspot capable smart phone and a computer with WiFi but you'd have to watch your data use.
