I moved into a (studio) apartment recently and I was wondering what kind of internet connections are available to me. I have no need for a phone or tv connection, just internet and after searching around for a long time it's still unclear what's possible for me to get.
I don't want mobile internet for my laptop (the one with an USB... stick thing), as it's quite expensive here and most importantly, has a download limit.
I don't mind getting internet + tv/telephone just for cable internet. Though providers offer internet (without tv or telephone) but it's unclear to me whether they assume you already have a tv/telephone connection. Is it possible to have cable internet without tv/telephone? What exactly are you getting when you receive a modem and/or router from your provider, and what are you connecting the modem to?
P.S. I live in the Netherlands

Yeah, it's going to depend on your regional location. I mean, it does in the US, at least; generally, you can get a cable internet package without TV or a (relatively slow) DSL internet connection without telephone service, but your providers are going to depend on where you are. In the US, I recently moved about fifteen miles and had to switch providers. Just Google search for "cable internet" and your location and see what comes up.
