All the company contact information is contained in each section.

Verizon Avenue (A spin off from Verizon) has wired the Independence
Harbor development so that all IH tenants can use DSL to connect to the internet. VA will supply a DSL modem that is both Ethernet and USB based.

If you also have Verizon
long distance account they will continue to give you a $15 discount after
the 6 months expires.
It appears that they require the use of a PPOE client to connect.
Warner Cable 201 886 0900
Earthlink 1 800 327 8454
Both these companies offer a cable modem service that allows high bandwidth
Time Warner Cable costs $44.95 a month (Or $85.00 if you don't have Cable
For each extra IP address its an extra $5.00 (For each machine)
Earthlink offers a similar deal for $41.95 that also gives you a free dial
up account while you are on the road. With their service you don't already
have to have a cable TV plan (But you need the cable in your home)
This makes the Earthlink cable modem offer the best deal "Currently available"
at Independence Harbor, although we have yet to talk to anyone who has it
Verizon 1 800 479 9977
Earthlink 1 800 327 8454
This is the old DSL service that was installed prior to the Verizon Avenue
Both companies only supply Legacy DSL to those buildings at Independence Harbor
that are less than 18,000 feet "Wire length" from the central Verizon
office and use a regular twisted copper line. Apparently buildings outside
this range use a digital loop carrier that cannot support DSL. Chase Court
is one of those buildings, but we are not aware of any other building within
the range, it seems that Independence Harbor is right on the border line for
Having said that, the DSL that both companies supply is "Restricted bandwidth".
The amount of data is restricted to 640 Kbps down and 90 Kbps up. This means
data upload is very slow - so things like sending large files or using a web
camera for video conferencing is definitely out because the connection is
basically just a little faster than a regular dial up modem.
The Verizon DSL service costs $49.95 a month, but as a incentive they reduce
the first couple of months to $29.95. The Earthlink offering costs $44.95
a month but comes with a free 20 hour a month dial up account.
