A recent Pew Research Center study found that adoption of traditional high-speed Internet in the U.S. has fallen to 67 percent, the lowest level since 2012. More consumers were using mobile phones, the study found. Thirteen percent of respondents said they were smartphone-only customers, compared with 8 percent in 2013. Fifteen percent of respondents said they have cut the cord on paid cable and satellite TV, largely because of the increased amount of streaming content available through other channels.

Mobile is not the most economical way to access the internet. But its the instant access that people crave and so they may be ditching broadband at home simply to buy more mobile data. But its not a good deal. If your smart, you can mostly find good mobile hot spots to enhance your mobile access. I would not trade my home network for mobile at any time. Its much more robust and important.

Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
