How to Get High Speed Internet in Trenton, Tennessee

by Helen Holzer

Trenton lies 79 miles northeast of Memphis, and is the oldest city in Gibson County, Tennessee. Founded in 1824, Trenton is the county seat and is notable for the Battle of Trenton, which took place in 1862 during the Civil War. The city's population of about 4,600 can look to several different high-speed Internet providers for service.

Step 1

Comcast provides bundled services in Trenton for high-speed Internet, cable TV and phone that allows for cheaper combined rates. You can order all three services in the company's Triple Play package, two services in a Double Play package or you can order high-speed Internet separately. Comcast's Powerboost feature allows for speeds from 12 Mbps to 20Mbps. Comcast customers can also access Comcast's security software that provides free added protection from viruses, malware and other computer threats.

Step 2

AT&T; Internet in Trenton offers consumers up to 11 unique email accounts as well as four speeds to choose from: 768K and 1.5, 3 and 6 Mbps. The speed for 6 Mbps measures 100 times faster than a dial-up connection. Packages also include AT&T; smart controls that can manage web content, block websites and stop spam. AT&T;'s parental controls ensure that children will not stay on the computer too long. Basic Wi-Fi service lets users access the Internet within 150 feet of any AT&T; Hot Spot across the country.

Step 3

Charter Cable offers bundled services for Internet, cable TV and phone. Choose Internet connections such as Charter Internet Express, Charter Internet Plus, Charter Internet Max or Charter Ultra60 to get speeds of 8 to 40 times faster than a 1.5Mbps DSL connection. Charter uses a broadband cable technology connection instead of the slower DSL. With these connections, consumers can play multiplayer video games and use virtual reality applications.

Step 4

A satellite Internet specialist at HughesNet can help you determine your best Internet plan. HughesNet is available throughout the contiguous United States, wherever there is a clear view of the Southern sky to place a satellite dish. Upload and download speeds can vary, depending on such factors as computer configuration, the number of concurrent users and Internet congestion.
