RCN Home Networking

For Home Networking

With RCN home networking equipment, you get the best speeds and ease of use. While you can also bring your own modem if you want, but you get the best performance with RCN’s latest equipment and that too at a minimum cost.

You can opt for Enhanced in Home Wi-Fi that will cost you only $9.95 per month and will cover your entire home with fast and reliable Wi-Fi. This enhanced in home Wi-Fi also comes with one base eero and one beacon eero. Eero secure+ is RCN’s security suite that protects your Wi-Fi from online threats.

Other than that, you also have the option to choose between standard Wi-Fi and router or a separate router and modem. Both options will cost you around $18.95 per month, but one thing is certain that they will give you the best experience you can get.

Computer Requirements

System requirements are simply guidelines but not the out-and-out rule. These days, any software requires a minimum and recommended set of standards. With the demand for higher processing power and resources, system requirements will increase over time necessitating an upgrade of existing computer systems.

Although our advanced fiber-optic network and the modem installed in your home deliver a fast internet connection, for optimal performance you must ensure your computer meets our standard system requirements.

As a basic, you should have the Ethernet card installed. Have it tested by a computer technician to ensure proper installation and functioning at optimum capacity. If for one reason or another, you find an Ethernet card is not installed in your system, you will need to install one.

Your computer system, as well as some broadband services, may require resources beyond our minimum standard requirements. Although RCN will provide support for other browser and operating system upgrades, all services may not be available for them.

For nearly three decades RCN has been offering services in Boston (Massachusetts), Lehigh Valley, Allentown Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), New York City, Washington DC and Chicago (Illinois).
If you are located in the RCN service area, RCN Internet is a great option. RCN offers cable broadband delivered via an upgraded hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network. Depending on where you are located, you can get speeds starting from 10 Mbps and max. speed as high as 940 Mbps. All plans come without data caps and there is no annual contract to bind you.
There could be a number of reasons why your RCN internet connection might have slowed down. Usually such issues are caused when the number of users connected are more than your plan can handle. For instance if you are on a 100 Mbps RCN Internet plan and you have over 5 family members indulging in data intense activities like streaming and gaming—you are bound to experience a slow down. Other reasons may involve issues with your internet equipment, the in-home Wi-Fi network etc. Often it’s a minor glitch that can be taken care of by DIY troubleshooting. But, you can also call RCN Customer Service for assistance.
RCN provides cable broadband over a hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network. Meaning, data transfers via fiber optic lines for the most part, but in the “last mile” it switches over to coaxial cable lines that run to your house. So you get download speeds as high as 940 Mbps. But, upload speed does not exceed 20 Mbps. RCN provides 100% fiber optic internet to businesses in 269 ZIP codes covered by its network.
If you’re living in Boston (Massachusetts), Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Allentown (Pennsylvania), New York City, Chicago (Illinois), or Washington DC, chances are you can subscribe to RCN internet plans in your area. Contact RCN Customer Service at 1-855-349-9313 to confirm availability.
The RCN network is super enhanced by cutting-edge fiber optic technology. And, RCN also makes smart use of the latest DOCSIS networking standards. Like so, the provider is able to deliver gigabit speeds over its hybrid network of fiber optic and coaxial cable lines. You can get download speeds up to 940 Mbps in New York City via your RCN internet connection.
RCN offers free installation from time to time with its promotions. If you check RCN offers at such a time, and subscribe to one, you are likely to get a waiver on the $49.99 upfront installation fee.
