Any recommendation on an internet provider in Hagerstown?

Comcast doesn't cover my area in Fountainhead-Orchard Hills.

You pretty much have two options. Verizon DSL or Antietam Cable for Broadband. I'd go with the latter because with Verizon you'll pay the same price for slower speeds. While Antietam stinks because of their monopoly on the Hagerstown area they actually seem to be a bit cheaper than the big guys like Comcast and Time Warner. Hope this helps.

I have the Antietam bundle. My internet is super fast, and I have not had any issues. Yes they have a monopoly, but I'll tell you, I think their customer service is great and they are out here in a jiffy when I have problems. I had Comcast in Frederick when I lived there and hated dealing with them. Between Comcast and Verizon, I thought I would lose my mind.

Jut one person's opinion.

The term high speed internet is misleading. It was used when it was new and everyone was on dial up, but now almost everyone uses, "high speed" internet. The term for people who dont have average internet speed should be slow speed. The only high speed internet in the US is on college campuses, independent businesses/government buildings who pay for dedicated lines, and people willing to pay a lot for it. Maybe 5% of the US population has access to high speed internet, mostly through work or school.

In fact the US has low internet speeds compared to other countries due to a oligarchy of a few terrible countries who are in bed with politicians. We went from being a pioneer to becoming average.
