    Internet Provider Question

    Moving to Florence in a few days. I wanted AT&T to be my internet provider because I have grown to loathe Cincinnati Bell. AT&T says they do not service this area and that Cincinnati Bell is the primary server. Does that mean that I have no choice but to get Cincinnati Bell? Is there no other company that can service my internet?

    I'm guessing you could get internet through Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable).

    Spectrum and Cincinnati Bell are your only options for high speed internet.

    I've had both multiple times and they both suck equally. At least at my house.

    I have heard good and bad about Cincinnati bell. Pick your poison. I rarely have any problens with Spectrum, if i do I call and get it fixed.

    Like Hammer said they can both suck equally. You may try telling them about how the previous owner told you about blah blah and have them run new wires to your house. Worth a shot.

    I can speak to Cincinnati Bell. If you have a true fiber line connecting to your house it is a no brainer buy it. If you have fiber over copper, meaning mostly fiber but copper leading directly up to your house (which I have now for the last 600 feet or so) then you need to ask around that neighborhood and see whatever everyone tells you. Please keep in mind most people are complete idiots when it comes to tech.

    Finally, my Cincinnati Bell Net is terrific and knock on wood NEVER fails. It frankly has been amazing.
