Xfinity makes cable available to much of this city, although part of The Heights in northern Jersey City is not within the Xfinity service area. Service begins stretching into the western half of Downtown, but the eastern half of this neighborhoods falls outside the coverage area.

RCN has a limited service area in this city, covering only part of The Waterfront in eastern Jersey City. Similarly, Time Warner Cable currently only offers cable service to part of The Heights.

All of Jersey City, and many of its outlying communities, enjoy full coverage from Optimum.

The service area of XO Communications reaches parts of The Heights in the North, stretching as far south as Liberty Park, although coverage stops short of Greenville.

Through Cogent Communications, part of Downtown enjoys high-speed internet access.

In addition, from The Heights to Bergen-Lafayette, much of Jersey City is served by Level 3 Communications. Portions of Liberty Park, Bergen-Lafayette, and Greenville are within the service area of NetCarrier Telecom.

Monmouth Telephone and Telegraph brings internet to select Jersey City neighborhoods, including Journal Square, West Side, and Hackensack Riverfront.

I have triple play bundle from Verizon FIOS for over 4 years now and I have been extremely satisfied with their internet service. I get amazingly consistent upload and download speeds. The only negative I would call out is that their router recycles itself every now and then without a warning. When I spoke to Verizon about this problem, they claimed that this happens when DHCP is re-cycled. This though not optimal is livable. I have several devices connected to the internet as any modern household would have and I see no latency at all. Pricing can be bit steep so it may not appeal to everyone's palate. They also don't seem to work very hard to retain customers and are ok if a customer leaves for a competitor. Perhaps, its just a matter of luck when it comes to who you speak to when you call up their support team.
