Why Shop Local for High Speed Internet Access Neighborhood Photo

Relying on large national Internet providers is a myth

Many assume that they are limited to one of two large, national Internet providers, but this is not the case.  In fact, shopping local for your high-speed Internet access can better serve you.  For companies transitioning their copper service to fiber or simply looking for higher Internet speeds, we offer a list of benefits for going local. 

Benefits of going local

These benefits include:

  • Local high-speed Internet providers can be equally as technically astute as larger, well-known ones.  A large, national advertising reach doesn’t automatically translate into better service.
  • Local Internet providers offer local customer service, which usually means better, more personalized care and faster resolution time. 
  • Local providers tend to be smaller, so your business is more important to them.  They will typically work harder to customize solutions for you and find a price that works.  In this case, you are “not just a number” and are less likely to be forced into purchasing services you don’t need.
  • When you give your business and money to local providers, you are supporting your local economy.
