Empire Access is one of the leading telecommunication providers in the Northeastern United States, with a fast growing network stretching from upstate New York to Pennsylvania. The company was founded in 1896 as a single telephone line. Empire has since grown tremendously and offers a variety of services to its customers.

Not only is Empire Access the fastest Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the northeast (PC Mag), we also offer many other essential services. Empire Access’ streaming and TV services provide customers with a plethora of channels, as well as home DVR capabilities. Phone services are available to residents, as well as providing a seamless office experience with hosted phone systems. Security services are also available to customers, including video monitoring and remote appliance control.

Empire Access is always looking to the future. We offer the latest in fiber optic technology, bringing bigger and faster advancement to customers. More recently, Empire Access has begun a massive expansion into Scranton, PA, with over 120 miles of fiber optic. That isn’t to say existing customers are left behind. Empire Access’ renowned 24/7/365 customer service ensures that no matter what happens, customers will always have their needs fulfilled should you have any questions.
