A Brief Overview of ISPs in the Northeast United States

A review of the broadband statistics and ISPs in the north-western region tells us that not all Internet service providers are the same. The effectiveness of each ISP varies from state to state. Moreover, the broadband speed also varies. For example, the percentages of people having access to broadband 100mbps or faster, in Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts is 90.9%, 73.5%, 99.0% and 95.1% respectively.

Individually too, the speeds of internet in the cities of these states vary. In total there are 75 internet providers in Connecticut.

So, which is the best business internet service provider in North East United States?

It can be clearly seen from the aforementioned statistics that internet services vary in each state, and even in each city. The best ISP in one state may not be the best in another. Moreover, the same ISP has varying speeds in different cities.

However, the title of best Internet service provider in the North-Eastern Region of US may be given to Verizon FiOS, as it maintains its services in various states and is a major competitor in the world of ISPs. It provides a good internet speed for significant costs and low cancellation fees.

I am sure, the above statistics would be helpful for you in finding the right business internet service provider, however, I’ll recommend doing thorough research on each available ISP in your area even if you need mobile broadband.
