I want to eliminate cable service which provides my internet access for my Apple MacBook Air as well as TV. I am interested in the Amazon fire cube. I own an Arris router and rent a receiver from the cable company. My question is will the fire cube provide wifi connectivity for my laptop? If it will exactly what equipment will I need? If it will not service my laptop is there any other way to cut cable but still have internet access on my computer?

Other common types of internet service for the residence are DSL and satellite. A few communities offer Internet over Power Lines. In some rural areas Fixed (direct line-of-sight) Wi-Fi may be offered.

Keep in mind exactly what you are trying to accomplish.

For me, I wanted to cut my TV bill, but keep my cable internet service. So,

Last summer I cancelled my cable TV service but kept my cable internet service. That cut my $153/month Mediacom cable bill by $83/month. Then for $40/month I added a live TV streaming service (YouTube TV) that provides all the TV stations that I care about (and added a couple I did not previously have). And I keep another $43/month in my pocket. :)

My choice of a streaming TV service was dictated by live sports, as that is almost all the TV I watch. Other people like movies and start with something like Netflix.
