(ratings above consensus)
Moved into a new apartment that was only serviced by RCN. I was a bit skeptical as I was coming from Comcast's Business Class service but I have been beyond impressed with RCN so far. I ordered the 60mbit internet service (recently upgraded to 75mbit) and I actually receive those speeds most of the time. Sometimes it slows slightly during peak hours but this can be expected.
Their cable TV service is very good as well. They offer a TiVo Premiere box for only a couple bucks more than I paid for the ancient Comcast DVR at my old place. The TiVo itself makes the service that much better. I just wish they had more 3D content including ESPN3D but hopefully that comes.
My building includes basic cable service, but with all of my other services including a sports package and a static ip address, my monthly bill comes to around $120 which is around what I paid for 1/3 the internet speed with Comcast Business. Very happy with RCN so far and highly recommended to others.
