Internet service in SOMD?

Comrades,

My wife and I recently lost our house in
Prince Frederick to a house fire. And, yes,
my guns DID suffer badly for real.

So, we are in a lovely rental in Lexington
Park. As we are settling in, we need to get
an internet service for the house, e.g.,
FIOS, etc.

Question is what is your experience with a service here in this part of SOMD? AT&T? Verizon? Other?

Call Atlantic Broadband (aka Metrocast), they may already have a hookup

If you are/were military: go to Verizon, and get a 5G hotspot with unlimited data for $40 per month.

Unless something has changed, Atlantic Broadband is the only game in town.

so sorry for the loss of your home and firearms in the fire. I hope you had good insurance on them and your home as well.

Until Verizon brings Fios down here, ABB is probably your best bet. I had Verizon DSL for ages, and had nothing but problems with it. ABB has been an improvement.

I have DSL. Not the greatest, but I can stream, but only one thing at a time.

Thank you, all...yeah, it’s been very
difficult and devastating...sure, we lost
a lot of goods and furniture, to include
guns and militaria, and the recovery process
has been excruciatingly slow...so far,
insurance company has been what seems
to me to be glacial.
As I have noted elsewhere here in the
Forum, I believe this is all part of His plan,
and as such is a good thing.
That being said, I sure do miss our stuff,
especially my guns and ammo, which I
would prefer to have near at hand during these crazy times as we settle into our rental place.

So, you do NOT recommend it?

Others here have called it the only game in town...although a Verizon 5G hotspot was recommended.

I have heard nothing but “bad” about Comcast.
