Here is a listing of the cities, towns, boroughs and neighborhoods that are widely served by Astound Broadband powered by RCN.
RCN was originally known as Residential Communications Network when founded. Based in Princeton, New Jersey, the company is now part of Astound Broadband along with Grande, Wave and enTouch.
RCN provides the greatest coverage in New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

Both Xfinity from Comcast and Astound Broadband powered by RCN provide cable broadband via a hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network. And both offer promotional plans at affordable prices. RCN promotional offers are however more affordably priced for the first 12 months. For instance you can get 1.2 Gbps from RCN for $44.99 to $54.99 per month for 12 months (depending on your location). Whereas Xfinity offers its 1.2 Gbps plan for $80/mo. for 12 months. Xfinity includes quite a few freebies in its plans, while with RCN you get no-contract plans and unlimited data. So it is all about which of the services fulfills your needs better.
If you are looking for better prices, you’ll find Astound Broadband powered by RCN leagues better than Verizon. RCN provides 1200 Mbps for download speeds at an attractive promo price of $44.99 to $54.99 per month for 12 months (depending on your area). Whereas Verizon provides the 1 Gig connection for $89.99/mo. Both providers give you unlimited data included in the price. The only thing is with RCN you will get gigabit internet over a hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network whereas Verizon FiOS® is 100% fiber optic. So, with Verizon your upload speed is as high as 880 Mbps, but with RCN the upload speed goes only as high as 20 Mbps. Yet, if your usage of internet is more standard than heavy, RCN makes a great choice.
Your first bill can vary depending on a number of things. If you started using RCN service in the middle of the month, you can expect a prorated portion of your monthly charges for TV, internet and phone, depending on what you’ve signed up for. You’ll also see standard taxes and fees for the current month in your bill. Your first RCN bill will show you the next month’s service charged in advance inclusive of taxes and fees. RCN bills a month in advance in keeping with industry standards. Phone service however is not charged in advance. Also, you should expect installation charges, as well as charges for Pay Per View or Video on Demand if used.
