Schenectady Residential Internet Coverage

The conveniently located city of Schenectady is a major state hub for commerce, business, and transportation. For that reason, internet is a high priority for those who work and reside in this region.

One of the speediest options available in this region is fiber optic internet. Through Verizon Fios, much of Schenectady enjoys consistent access to high-speed service. The network runs north to Glenville, south to Guilderland, west to Rotterdam Junction, and east to Niskayuna. Coverage also sprawls across the central part of the city, serving areas like Scotia, Harding Crossing, Shakers, and Pine Grove.

Customers interested in cable service have a number of options through Time Warner Spectrum. This internet service provider has a massive network that runs across the entirety of Schenectady. Through Time Warner Spectrum, major neighborhoods like Hawthorne Hill, Aqueduct, and Alplaus enjoy the benefits of reliable service. On top of that, the network extends to the north, south, east, and west to reach outlying communities.

I signed up for the most basic service and so far I am happy with if. When I went to their location to sign up they tried to tell me that it would not work with wifi because they wanted me to upgrade to the next level which I think is a little bit more per month but I opted not to and the wifi works just fine. So for the (current) price and for the quality I am satisfied for now. The only thing I don't like is that after a year the price keeps going up and up so it would make more sense to go with another provider like Verizon because for the money verizon is better.

Time warner sucks and all the internet providers in my zipcode have super high prices to go along with not the greatest service. I need to get rid of time warner by next week, I hate them. I think I'm going to put rabbit ears on my house and get Karma for my internet. I don't know whst else to do. I hope Google internet shows up so I can get that.
