Few Good Options in Residential Internet
With few good options in the residential Internet segment, consumers in addition to performing regular activities on the Internet can also play live games and telecommunicate with tremendous efficiency. Two recent telephony companies that have launched their services for their residential consumers include - Charter Communications and SureWest.
Charter Communications launched its fastest and extensively available Internet services called Charter High-Speed Internet Ultra60 in the US. The service, capable of delivering 60Mbps download speeds and 5Mbps uploads. This means subscribers can download a 4GB movie, 40 times faster with this plan as compared to a DSL connection.
Charter uses the DOCSIS 3 technology to deliver the high-speed residential Internet service for a price at $55 per month. Meanwhile, similar services offered by Comcast, priced at $140 per month. Verizon charges $145 monthly. The latter two offer 50Mbps services via DOCSIS 3 and fibre optics, respectively.
SureWest Communications is yet another incredibly fast, residential Internet connection that delivers up to 20Mbps via fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network. When combined with a home telephone or television package, the service amounts to $89.95 per month. Alternatively, subscribers can avail 10Mbps service at $49.95 monthly.
The service is currently available in selected areas of the Sacramento market including Natomas, Carmichael, Lincoln and Elk Grove.
Advanced Digital Internet (ADI) is yet another reliable option for residential Internet subscribers. It is a wireless service that is used on both the PC and laptop. The New York-based service provider offers personalized services to over 150 residential properties in the New York area. With speed options ranging between 64 and 640 KBPS, ADI's technology is robust and secure against hacking.
For buildings that do not support wireless signals, ADI offers wired residential Internet. The rates are competitive in comparison to many other service providers.
How does it work? ADI deploys a new data grade cable infrastructure in the building to connect wireless transmitters in the stairwells or hallways. The connections are made from wiring under the property and subscribers are then connected to their residential Internet via a Network Interface Card installed in the PC.
