ESVBA Isn’t the Fastest


Dear Editor:

Your article states “The ESVBA currently provides the fastest internet speed on the Shore, according to the BroadbandNow website, as stated in the application.”

The BroadbandNow website does indeed say ESVBA offers speeds up to 2,000 Mbps in my area (https://, but when you click on the ESVBA plans radio button, you find the fastest plans offered are 100 Mbps.

This is a typical bait-and-switch tactic that seems to be the ESVBA modus operandi for doing business, as has been demonstrated over the past decade of broken promises.

Spectrum offers 200, 400, and 1,000 Mbps plans. What is more telling is that I have actually gotten friends using Spectrum to run speed tests on their computers at home and they say they are actually getting the speeds Spectrum advertises.

After researching both companies, I am hoping we can get Spectrum service in my neighborhood.
