Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Reading
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.
