Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Brooklyn
We were with RCN for almost 2 years already and I'm quite impressed with their service and speed. I've never had trouble as I have had with other companies in which my connection would be limited or die down often. The speeds always come out to be very close to the advertised stats, sometimes going to 1.5 times as much promised, even throughout the day when others are actively using their services. The pricing is my only concern, as providers have adapted this increasing price plan where you're guaranteed a great price as a new customer, but it just keeps going up each year. If it weren't for the hefty costs, RCN would score perfectly.
