Pay for 1Gbps down 40Mbps up, only issue I have is the upload speed, would be nice if it was even a quarter of the download speed, latency is always good.
Fair price, good internet service, and lousy customer service.
Blue Ridge Cable is really only option around here and besides price its good
Setup and install are quick within few days, the speeds are up to 1000Mbps but they have limits that increase with plans. I have the 30Mbps and it has a 1000Gb limit then $10 for each additional 1000. I have never had any downtime in 3 years and the price is about $64 monthly which is the lot but really it's the only decent provider in this area and they know it. I have tried the 100Mbps speed and it's nice but just remember some older wifi networks won't even be able to push that much speed unless you have over 100Mbps router and if there is still some overhead even with 54Mbps wifi network, 30Mbps cable sometimes maxes out my network and I only get 28Mbps. I would recommend if you can afford the 30Mbps, if you get the 10Mbps it has only 500Gb limit and if you use Netflix and other streaming sites it usually hits data cap but it won't stop you, it just charges you more.
Service Electric Cable - Sparta NJ
Local Mom and Pop cable company. My only choice although they're not the best, they are not the worst. Customer service is really good, but wish I could have higher speeds at a lower price.
They offer poor plans and tend to be very expensive. Upload speeds need improvement.
Ask me about PTD
No outages, no slow downs, no problems. This is the real deal, it makes the other providers look like they are still using dialup.
If I could move today I would, thet internet here is the worst ever. The service feels like it's 1999 with slow speeds and the same answer from customer service when there's an issue, "please reset your router" I can reset the router 100 times and still won't give me the quality I'm paying for.
Expensive and limited
Sure, it works and it's available. but who in the world is going to pay $42.95 for 1.5 Mbps down and 384 kbps up!? I pay for the 100/5 for $125/month. The upload is 20x slower than the down. I must say that it is pretty consistent. Almost 98% of the time I get my full bandwidth. I am still very concerned about the limited upload and hoping to see more in the future. It is kind of a gimped package now.
Service Electric Cablevision and PenTeleData - Often the best choice
Service Electric Cablevision (SECV) says it was the first cable provider in the United States and it tries to keep-up even though it is a regional family owned company in the backyard of Comcast. PenTeleData (PTD) provides Internet for SECV. SECV is generally the fastest Internet service provider in its footprint. Its pricing and services are similar to Comcast XFinity and FIOS (which is generally in the more urban markets near the more rural SECV service areas). Overall, SECV or Comcast are the only real residential broadband choices in our area, and where you live determines which is available. Businesses, governmental, and non-profits have more options available, including service directly from PTD. PTD has been a good value for my residential Internet service for more than 20 years, beginning with the Zenith proprietary cable modem service before DOCSIS.
