Hello Chicago Bees!
My fiancé will be moving to Chicago this month (and I will be following after we are married), and we have found an apartment in a new building that we are going to rent. We have been researching what internet service to use, but the problem is that cable does not run to our building, and we need a phone line for our intercom system to work. We have always just gotten out internet through our cable, but that is not an option now.
So, what do you recommend we do for phone service and internet? We would like high-speed internet (fiancé’s office is at home and we love watching movies on Netflix).

Whatever you do, don’t resort to Hughesnet. It’s so awful.

Okay, we will stay away! Thanks!

I use RCN, but that’s through a cable line. I don’t know if they have any options that will work for your situation. Sorry I can’t help further 🙁 But good luck with your move! Exciting!

@Zuzu2and11: Comcast and RCN have a monopoly on the Chicago market. I personally prefer RCN; they have better customer service. When I first moved to Chi, my building wasn’t wired for RCN, but RCN was the better $ deal. They sent a technician over who was climbing all over outside, wiring the building. It was free:) I’m not sure if that service is always free – but just call them. I’m stuck with Comcast now and miss RCN.
