Can anyone recommend a good high-speed internet provider that'll provide to not-all-that-outer Brooklyn?
Good ISP for Brooklyn
I live in Brooklyn, in South Park Slope, and am desperate for a better high-speed internet provider.
We currently have Earthlink/Roadrunner through Time Warner, which is abysmal and getting worse---we typically lose internet completely for a couple of hours a day. Everything indicates it's the internet connection, not the router (which I've swapped out a few times). When I call TWC, they agree that they can't see my modem, arrange to send out a tech, and then it starts working again in a few hours. And then it happens again a couple of days later.
So, I'm fed up, but I don't know what else will work. I looked at the previous thread
on the subject, but RCN and Verizon FIOS aren't available in South Slope. Our apartment doesn't have a phone line running to it, so DSL seems like it would be both expensive to set up and ultimately slower (the Fuzzwife watches a lot of Netflix streaming, and I've been warned that DSL isn't good for that). Comcast satellite I've been warned off of, especially since I'm a renter. I have the $55/month TWC package, and I'd be happy to upgrade, but would it be worth it, or would I just be paying more for slightly faster unreliable service?
If anyone has any advice, it would be hugely appreciated! Including if anyone can tell me that I'm unfairly dismissing existing options. Thoughts? Anyone?
