Chico Residential Internet Coverage

While having the luxury of living near the Plumas Forest, neighborhoods surrounding them are at a limitation when it comes to an internet provider.

However, most residents have access to internet services. AT&T provides over 95% of Chico residents and neighborhoods with DSL services. Advertising download speeds up to 18 Mbps, it may not be the highest speed, but it's one of the highest in Chico.

Xfinity by Comcast offers residents of Chico with cable internet, promoting speeds up to 250 Mbps. While it is largely available to the community, neighborhoods closer to Butte Meadows and Cohasset might be restricted if living in more remote locations.
