RCN Launches 1 Gigabit Internet

Our recent roll-outs in New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago have garnered massive interest from our customers, proving that RCN is filling a gap that’s long needed filling.

RCN, a three time winning provider of high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services, today announced the immediate availability of 1 Gigabit internet speeds to residents in all of its Delaware County serviceable areas including Clifton Heights, Darby, Drexel Hill, Upper Darby, Yeadon and more. RCN is the first to offer the highly-anticipated service in the Philadelphia suburbs and is doing so with affordable pricing and simple installation. By offering 1 Gigabit internet speeds RCN is again redefining the fastest and most cost-effective advanced internet services.

In the last month, RCN has also launched 1 Gigabit service in New York City, Washington D.C. and Chicago. New network technology DOCSIS 3.1 makes it possible for RCN residential customers to receive Gigabit speeds through the same wiring they already have in their homes.

1 Gigabit internet is a game-changing level of speed with the power to transform the way users operate online. The average household has multiple devices, including smart TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets and printers, connecting to the same network at the same time, so the increase in bandwidth will prove invaluable. With download speeds of 1,000 Mbps, users can download their favorite album in under two seconds or their favorite TV show in just four seconds.

“RCN has always been known for staying ahead of the curve, and we will continue to do so as technologies develop,” said Sanford Ames Jr., Senior Vice President and General Manager of RCN Philadelphia. “1 Gigabit speeds are what our customers need to keep with up the Internet of Things and increasing bandwidth needs in the home. Our recent roll-outs in New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago have garnered massive interest from our customers, proving that RCN is filling a gap that’s long needed filling.”

RCN’s Gigabit internet residential service is now available with pricing starting at just $69.99/month for 12 months. The affordable packages require no contracts. Those interested in signing up for 1 Gigabit internet service can do so by calling 1-800-RING-RCN or by visiting rcn.com.

RCN is also bringing faster speeds to its customers in the nearby Lehigh Valley with the launch of 330 Mbps internet speeds. This upgrade provides residents a high-performance connection that delivers value over a platform designed to expand as a customer’s future internet needs expand.
