The dream of new companies offering home internet has been just a dream for years. Now slowly a growing number of new companies are moving into home internet including Starry. Starry is a startup from some of the team behind Aereo, which has slowly been rolling out 5G fixed wireless home Internet. Currently Starry offers 5G home Internet in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC for $50 a month with no data cap. Last week this $50 a month 5G home internet service launched in Denver, CO offering 200 Mbps down and no data cap.
The markets Starry is in now and coming to include Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, New York City, Denver, Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Miami, Memphis, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Manchester, NH, Portland, OR, and Sioux Falls, SD. In total Starry plans to launch in 17 more markets.
“More internet service provider competition means more choices for consumers, and more choices for consumers translates into lower prices and higher quality of service,” said Starry Chief Operating Officer Alex Moulle-Berteaux. “The vast majority of Americans live in cities, neighborhoods or buildings that have a single internet provider and as a result, prices are high and customer satisfaction is low. Starry is bringing our high-speed, best-in-class internet service experience to those cities, neighborhoods and buildings that desperately need competition. We’re excited to add
Denver to our list of live markets and look forward to continuing to expand our network footprint throughout the country.”
Starry recently told Cord Cutters News recently that they are also working on improving the customer experience by offering same-day installation and 30-minute service windows so you know when the tech is coming. Not only that but during the installation Starry says they will also connect your Wi-Fi devices to your new network before they leave.
Update: Starry reached out to Cord Cutters News to let us know they plan to launch in 17 markets at this time, not the 15 that was earlier reported.
