RCN’S Internet Service Continues to Top the Charts for Delivery of Today’s Fastest Over The Top (OTT) Content

New YouTube HD Verified rating reinforces RCN’s high-quality HD video delivery for excellent end-user experiences

PRINCETON, NJ – September 12, 2014 –RCN, an industry-leading provider of high-speed Internet, digital TV and phone services, announces that its RCN Internet service continues to top the charts when it comes to delivering a superior customer experience delivering over the top services. Consistently rated highly for speed, reliability and streaming quality for customers, RCN Internet recently received “YouTube HD Verified” status, earning the company the highest ranking Google offers due to its strong, consistent and smooth delivery of high-definition (HD) OTT content across Internet service in all six RCN markets.

RCN is not only YouTube HD Verified. The company has previously received PC Magazine Reader’s Choice Award 2013 for Best Cable Broadband, while its Netflix Open Connect Partnership confirms RCN’s commitment to delivering a top-notch viewing experience for today’s most sought-after content. RCN has been in the Top 8 of the Netflix USA ISP Speed Index report for the past five consecutive months, delivering top speeds that are frequently stronger than many of the nation’s larger service providers.

For customers who need the fastest-available connectivity for streaming movies and music, watching and sharing video, playing games and communicating via social media, RCN provides excellent service at prices much lower than bigger providers in the marketplace.

“At RCN we designed our Internet platform to deliver the highest in reliability, speed and performance,” states Chris Fenger, Chief Operating Officer at RCN. “Our recent YouTube HD Verified ranking provides additional validation from a global industry leader that our customers consistently receive an outstanding video streaming experience. For all the OTT services that exist today, the best experience comes with a fast, reliable Internet connection, which is what RCN delivers. We are pleased to include Google’s highest ranking in our list of third-party confirmations of exceptional performance.”

According to the Google Video Quality Report, RCN’s Internet connections consistently deliver HD-quality video without buffering or interruptions.
