Getting connected

Communications and utilities for Your Apartment in New York


As suggested by the practice, priority of purchase in New York is a question of connecting to the Internet and having cable television.

All new buildings should be equipped in advance with cables and the technical equipment needed to connect, so all that remains for you, is just to activate the service. To do this, you need to call the cable company and arrange a convenient time for the arrival of a specialist. Usually the closest date for which you can assign the appointment is available in the range from 2 to 7 working days. But sometimes, depending on the capability of the building and the specific area, it may take 7 to 14 days. Therefore, we recommend that you take care of it in advance.

In those buildings where the service is not provided, or was terminated before the previous station, you have the opportunity to select the desired provider from among those who provide the service in that particular house. To determine this, simply visit the selected site, and enter your address to find out if it is availabe.

(As well as possible additional gifts.)
