Ask AOA: internet service providers

cable modem

We got an email from Meg this week with a question:

I'm moving to Albany next week from [way out West], and have been reading your blog since March to learn about my new city. I thought you guys would know of other internet providers in the area besides Time Warner/ATT/Verizon. Any suggestions??

We were kind of stumped, but we thought you might have some ideas. Does anyone know of any options for Meg? Good/bad experiences?

Comments

Verizon Fios is the best value you can get in the area. Other than that, your next best bet is Timewarner RR.

A careless neighbor.

@JB: FiOS sounds great, but the availability is sort of limited right now.

I use RoadRunner. I would recommend going to http://www.dslreports.com/reviews and entering your zip code to get some reviews of local ISPs.
