Great local company that delivers quality, fast service when an issue with electrical or data is reported. The linemen are willing to go to great lengths to ensure they do not get called back to a site, including rerunning wire, calling in to technical support, calling other providers who have cables that may be effected, cutting back tree branches BEFORE they fall, and I could go on. Contrary to one reviewer municipal ISPs are virtually our only hope against the erosion of net neutrality. By nature they must be pro NN in order to survive the market.

Convenient business hours (only town office open late on Thursdays!), friendly staff, affordable electric rates. They even give you a discount if you pay early.

I cut the cable cord and went with BELD 50mbs internet with a streaming services. Installer was professional, friendly and on time. Set up was seamless and service has been reliable. At some point over the last year the cost of the service actually went down! Sadly, I'm going back to fios because the upload speeds are so slow with cable. That said, if the upload speeds are not important to you, BELD is a terrific option.
