To be a top Internet provider, it starts with speed. But speed alone is not enough! According to PC Magazine readers, ISPs also need to meet other critical elements such as satisfaction with reliability, fees, customer service, tech support and initial setup.
For three years in a row customers rated RCN the best in PC Magazine’s Annual ISP Rankings. In 2018 RCN received its highest ranking as the fastest ISP in the Northeast – surpassing Verizon, Optimum, Spectrum and Comcast.
RCN’s ratings for satisfaction and customer service were the highest among all ISPs, leading to RCN’s top rating for likelihood to recommend of 8.2, ahead of Verizon Fios (8.0), AT&T Fiber (6.8), Comcast and Spectrum (at 6.4 each).
