Recently Greenlight Networks announced plans to expand to Buffalo, New York. This service offers Internet plans starting at $50 for 500 down and 50 up Internet all the way up to 2,000 Mbps down.
Greenlight Networks offers fiber Internet currently in other parts of New York including Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany. Now they are expanding into Buffalo.
As cord cutting grows and Internet demands increase, we are seeing a growing number of smaller Internet companies like Greenlight rushing in to try and profit on the need for home Internet. The good news for cord cutters is that this means competition. A data cap-free Internet provider offering 500 down and 50 up for $50 is a great deal and far more than what you need to stream Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and more.
Greenlight Network is not the only company trying to expand. We are seeing a growing number of small fiber and wireless home Internet companies working to offer competition. We have even seen a growing number of companies offering 5G Internet to fill the need.
Alone none of these companies can stand up to Comcast or Spectrum, but as more of them launch together they can add up to real competition for companies like Comcast.
