Bakersfield Residential Internet Coverage

Many internet service providers have expansive networks in Bakersfield that offer a variety of plans to residential and business customers.

Through AT&T, business and residential customers can access DSL, fiber internet, or both, depending on their location. All of Bakersfield falls within the AT&T service area.

Frontier Communications is fairly established in Bakersfield, with coverage reaching the central neighborhoods of Riviera-Westchester and Downtown. Coverage extends to the southwestern neighborhoods of Ridgeview Estates and The Seasons, as well as northeastern neighborhoods like Hillcrest and Eastcrest Estates.

Through New Edge Networks, customers in almost every part of Bakersfield can access speedy internet. Coverage stops short of Stone Meadows in the west and doesn_t quite reach Rexland Acres in the southeast.

Brighthouse Networks has a slightly larger service area that stretches to the north in La Cresta and Homaker Park before running south to Castle Ranch and Stonegate. The network runs from River Oaks in the west to Rio Bravo in the east.

Ken C | 11-25-2016

I'm pretty disappointed with AT&T UVerse. Started 3 years ago when they installed it next door in error instead of my house. Charged me to put in my house. Still waiting for my credit. Customer Service lousy. Not to be rude but speaking English would be a good start. Throw away the script and listen to my questions. Service goes in and out, but somehow the monthly bill is always right on time. Over $70 a month for part time Internet is bad enough, but giving them monopoly for mediocre products and services is laughable. AT&T used to be a great company. What happened to you guys?

I am so disappointed with AT&T internet service. They quote a price and then when the bill comes it is a completely different price. The service they quoted me should have been perfect for my situation. But, no it was not. I would do without internet service before I would go back to AT&T.
