Internet providers

Which internet service providers are available for McKinley Park residents? I have not had luck finding alternatives to Comcast. I spoke to a small company 12Global that seems open to expanding into McKinley Park, but is not there yet.

  • Jim Reho (a/k/a hodeho) Fifteen-year Brighton Park resident

    AT&T Broadband (formerly AT&T U-Verse) is pretty good, but a bit spendy for decent speeds.

  • What type of structure? Google Fiber (under WebPass) will do multi-tenant building fiber installations pretty cheaply. Other than that...AFAIK U-Verse doesn't do true broadband (FIOS) in McKinley. I can get a whopping 1Mbit here in Canaryville. RCN doesn't provide services down here, and nothing from small companies I've found has panned out...so at least the conclusion I've come to is so far, I'm stuck with Comcast.

Amazing School

St Bruno Catholic School has exceeded my expectations on my child's education! The teachers are amazing! The students are all being taught beyond subjects like science and math. They also are taught values, morals, kindness, compassion, etc. They have activities and events that allow parents and students to get involved and further build friendships. St Bruno offers before and after school care, a wonderful asset to working parents. I highly recommend taking a tour and seeing for yourself what a lovely community this school has built with their excellent teachers, staff and students!!
