This past Saturday VoIP was installed by Atlantic Broadband along with an upgrade to Digital Cable for the television. Internet is still 3/320. All services are consistently of high quality. The modem for VoIP and internet is Motorola SBV5220 Surfboard. Great diagnostics page.

Nothing new to report. Had a couple of outages but they were weather related. Customer service is fast, patient and usually knowledgeable. I'm still a satisfied user of Atlantic Broadband.

This service, internet~digital cable~VoIP, is just plain stable. It's a set and forget item. Absolutely nothing negative to report.

Effective 1 September 2008, Atlantic Broadband will be increasing speeds across the board in Pennsylvania at no extra charge. As follows:

Starter High Speed 320/320 to 512/512. Kbps of course.
Preferred High Speed 3/320 to 5/512. Me!
Max High Speed 5/512 to 8/512.

Still very satisfied with Atlantic Broadband

This past week, I'm thinking Tuesday or Wednesday, was the first time I encountered any real problems with service.. Early in the morning the cable, internet and VoIP went down. The outage covered Central PA and parts of Maryland.

The cable and VoIP came back on very fast but no internet connection could be made. I tried every trick in the book trying to reestablish it to no avail. Finally called a tech friend and explained the problem. Simple solution was a pin hole reset button on the back of the Motorola SBV5220 Surfboard. Fixed.

I don't know if ABB should have/could have sent a reset signal to the network or not. Would have saved me and probably a multitude of others a major source of frustration. O'well, at least I have learned another avenue of solving a problem from this experience. Good can come out of bad.

Nothing new to report. We simply have a very stable system here which I am very satisfied with. When I do have an issue of any kind Customer Service is swift in resolving it. Kudos to Atlantic Broadband in Central PA.
