Spectrum is the most popular provider, with 99% coverage in New York. Although Spectrum is a cable internet provider, its 940 Mbps speeds are fast enough to rival fiber-optic connections. Plans often start at $45 for 100 Mbps in cities like Syracuse, Albany, and Rochester. For most New York cities we compared plans in, customers will only have that one 100 Mbps internet plan option. It may be excessive for smaller households, but it comes at the same price as many lower speed plans from other providers. Spectrum's plans come without any caps on data usage too.
Spectrum really shines when it comes to additional perks and enticing package structure. Spectrum comes with no contracts (therefore no termination fees), and a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you're ever unhappy with Spectrum's service, you can cancel or switch providers with ease. If you'd like to bundle multiple services (like TV or phone), there are additional perks like free installation and free DVR service.
