At our beach house over Thanksgiving the Internet /wifi was wonky.Weak ,in and out not working much.Our cable was strong.We have basic there ,the only way to have TV there.Normally it is the cable if something is wonky.Cell phone often is wonky .We have a land line because to depend on a cell is worrisome.

Our teens were in withdrawal .I always thought as long there was cable...endless sports and Sci Fi ...it would be fine.After the first day on Wed they were ok but I had never realized how much they stayed in contact with their friends.It was panic for them when they realized they couldn't text our address to friends coming down...lol...land line ??????

For your teen and you what is more important Internet or TV/Cable.

My husband shut off the cable and wi fi one day over the holiday weekend because he was trying to get the kids to come downstairs and they weren't listening.  They were watching a movie and when it stopped, they looked at each other for a minute, then grabbed their phones and started texting/surfing the net via the 4g service on their smart phones--they didn't even notice he'd done anything.  LOL, he just couldn't win!

 Probably cable/tv. He's limited on his computer usage- no computer in his room and his laptop is for schoolwork only (it stays in the kitchen or family rm). The only cell phone he gets to use is a basic Tracfone that he has to share w/ his younger siblings- it stays in the kitchen when not needed.
