A white-collar town with some of the highest living costs in the United States, Edison residents know the value of a consistent internet connection. Nearly 15% of residents work in computers, science and math. Outside of work, residents use their internet connection for entertainment on their long public transit commutes and to learn about their ethnically diverse neighbors.
The majority of Edison residents are covered by Optimum for cable internet and Verizon for DSL connection. This includes the neighborhoods of Pumptown, New Dover, Maplecrest Rd., Menlo Park and North Edison. Businesses in the area follow a similar trend extending from just north of Inman Ave. to the Raritan River and from Rutgers University to the Menlo Park Mall.
