RCN connection types

RCN primarily uses a cable internet network, but may also use a DSL or fiber-optic network in select locations to offer gig-speeds. Depending on your location and which RCN internet plan you choose, your connection could include a cable, fiber-optic or DSL connection, or a hybrid or multiple network types.

RCN cable

RCN cable internet is available to 98% of those in RCN service areas. Speeds range from 50 to 500 Mbps. Cable internet offers faster speeds than DSL, but speeds can slow at peak usage times.

RCN fiber-optic

Fiber-optic internet often supports the fastest, most reliable internet service, and is the foundation for RCN’s Gig Internet. Available to roughly 18% of serviceable areas, RCN fiber-optic offers customers speeds up to 1,000 Mbps or 1 Gbps.


Less than 5% of households in RCN-serviceable areas have access to their DSL service. As an older internet technology, DSL doesn’t deliver the speeds you’d get with cable or fiber-optic internet, but may offer lower-priced internet plans.
