DSL-based Internet from phone providers has strong coverage in comparison with other Internet services in Ghent because it relies on landline phone wires to send data — the line usually reaches the subscriber from utility poles outside, which continues to a modem attached to the phone outlet to enable your home Wifi.

Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) and Verizon also offer Internet service in Ghent, although our speed test results indicates that Consolidated might be faster.
