Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Brookline
Solid but unexciting Internet service
We've used Verizon for Internet service for over five years. Positives: Very reliable - almost no down times. Customer service, on the few occasions where I've needed it, has been quick and helpful. Reasonable cost. Negatives: I just ran a speed test. Download -- 4.83 Mbps Upload -- .71 Mbps. That's pretty meh in a major metro area.
A refreshing change
Everything has gone smoothly since moving into our home a few months ago and activating RCN internet service. Customer service is very friendly on the phone. Internet packages are very reasonable prices compared to the competition.
Internet is ok, but not super fast. I was able to handle two laptops downloading movies etc. We have the 'basic' TV package - 40 channels of shopping, PBS and HBO. Not a good deal.
