"I have to say that everyone that I have dealt with at Empire has been top notch. I was honestly surprised at the pride and knowledge that they had, and they actually were following up to see if everything was working the way it should. At times, I felt like we were their only customer. As far as the Fiber is concerned, it gives us reliability that we have not had — ever — and the speed that we desperately lacked. We also have a sense of partnership, meaning that our voices will always be heard by someone who actually cares about our business."

– Joe Callaghan, General Manager - Hunt Hollow Ski Club, Naples, NY

"They got everything running in no time and were super helpful in setting up my home and answering questions. I truly appreciate the great service."

– Eric M., Corning, NY

“Fiber connectivity is amazing, and so are the folks who brought it to my house, and keep it running smoothly. As always, especially when I have the luxury of not thinking about it at all, you have my thanks.”

– Jason T., Big Flats, NY





“We are very thankful to Empire Access for selecting our area to be our service provider for fiber optic high speed internet and phone service.  We are very happy with the speed that they provide along with the unlimited data.  Both my husband and myself were very impressed with everyone that we dealt with from when we first signed up to the very efficient, friendly and helpful installer.”

– Veda M., Elmira, NY





“The tech that hooked up my service did an awesome job setting up and explaining everything. He was very fast and easy to talk to. He's a great asset to your company. THANK YOU”

James, Canandaigua, NY

“In the past, when I had a group of photos to upload at night for a slide show, I would typically get the upload started and go to bed and post the slide show in the morning. It would take an hour, maybe two hours, depending on the size of the slide show, to upload the photos. Now we have broadband through Empire Access. It took only 10 minutes to upload this slide show.”

– Howard Owens, Publisher - The Batavian - Online News. Community Views, Batavia, NY

"Wow!  Just wow!!  I’ve been interested in fiber optic internet access ever since I heard about it several years ago. When Empire came into my neighborhood, I decided to give them a shot. So grateful I did. Besides the LIGHTNING fast speeds, my favorite thing about Empire is their incredible customer service. Their agents are available 24/7, I easily access an agent, and I get to speak with somebody local. Can’t say enough good things about Empire Access. I’ve loved every day I’ve been able to use their internet services. Please give them a chance!!"

– Steve A.
