Looking for feedback on Spectrum enterprise fiber in NYC

    I'm considering switching my current Internet Service Provider from Cogent to Spectrum Enterprise Fiber.  The change would save me $9,000 per year.  However,  I do not know anyone that uses Spectrum Enterprise Fiber in New York City.  I understand that their consumer coaxial cable business has its fair share of issues. If you or someone you know has used Spectrum Enterprise Fiber in NYC for business, please share the experience.

    Thank you,

    I don't have direct experience with Spectrum NYC, but my best advice is to go with the company who lit the building. Going with a different provider who is not in the building will only incur you additional charges. And using a telco broker can also lead you down the wrong path.
