Question Cable & Internet Providers

Are there any other companies in the Camden/Gloucester County area that offer Cable & Internet services besides Verizon & Comcast?
I'm not able to get Verizon due to the strike, and I'm not a fan of Comcast.

Those are the only two games in town. The only option outside of them is satellite, but you will still be tied to Comcast or Verizon for internet and phone.

My area only has Comcast, but I previously had FiOS and my parents have it as well. Overall I have been pretty happy with my Comcast service and it has worked out to be a little cheaper than what FiOS would be for the same level of service and number of boxes I need. Also, if you are a sports fan, FiOS doesn't carry CN8 as that is a Comcast only channel. Some baseball and hockey games are carried on CN8, so if you are into those sports, you would miss those games if you had FiOS.

Fios carries the The Comcast Network (on Ch.99).

Good to know. When I had FiOS, they didn't carry CN8. Comcast was forced to allow them to carry Comcast Sportsnet, but they didn't have to give them CN8. Of course, all the games that used to be carried on the WB or another network when there were conflicts all ended up on CN8. I remember missing quite a few Flyers and Phillies games because of that. Next time I'm at my parents I'll have to check it out.

Yup, CN8 is now rebranded back to The Comcast Network. Fios doesn't carry a HD feed for this channel, if one still exists - don't know.

The Fios internet doesn't support MusicChoice the same way Comcast supports music listening online. On than that, Fios has pretty much everything that is on Comcast, with exceptions being DVR and On Demand services likely varying between the two. Fios has some channels not on Comcast.

Even after 2 years with Fios, I find Fios' channel numbering is still difficult to maneuver, compared to previous experiences with Comcast and Dish Network. e.g. The premium movies start at 340 (rather than 300 or 400) and rather than starting with HBO, Fios started Ch. 340 with Starz. 840 and higher is the HD versions.

Unlike Comcast, Verizon has limited customer service on Sundays.
