Hayward Residential Internet Coverage

The city of Hayward, which is located in the San Francisco metropolitan area, has several internet options to meet the needs of businesses, residents, and tourists.

Offering both DSL and fiber internet, AT&T has an established service network in Hayward. Between its DSL network and fiber network, it brings coverage to the entire city of Hayward, reaching Mount Eden in the west, Hayward Highland in the east, Castro Valley in the north, and Fairway Park in the south.

While most of western Hayward falls into the service area of Sonic.net, certain eastern neighborhoods are excluded. Coverage stops shorts of Hayward Highland and the Upper B Street area.

Service via New Edge Networks is available in many western Hayward neighborhoods, including Mount Eden, Glen Eden, and Southgate. Coverage is unavailable in some parts of Mission-Foothill and North Hayward. Part of Tennyson-Alquire is outside the New Edge Networks service area.

And last but not least, cable internet is provided by Xfinity, which also includes all of Hayward in its service area.

Eddie R | 08-01-2023

I recently attempted to add to my account, and it was the worst experience I have had to date. First I was on the phone for almost two hours and when we thought we were finished, they couldn't complete the order. Called back the next day on the phone for another long period of time, got Parton what I wanted but when the technician came out everything was fine until I had to sign the agreement, the bill was $45 more than what was quoted on the phone and they didn't have all the equipment. I've decided to go with another company and remove my service. This was a very bad experience just trying to upgrade services. Shouldn't be that hard and misleading for consumers.
