Oakland Residential Internet Coverage

Oakland is currently one of the largest cities in California, and it_s particularly known for its strong business communities. High-speed internet is a necessity in this region.

Through New Edge Networks, many neighborhoods scattered around Oakland can choose DSL or copper wireline internet. In the west, covered neighborhoods include Acorn, Prescott, Peralta, and Brookfield Village. There is minimal coverage throughout the central part of the city, with most covered neighborhoods lying in the southcentral part of the city. Eastern neighborhoods in the New Edge Networks service area include Redwood Heights, Piedmont Pines, and Glen Highlands.

Sonic.net has one of the largest networks in Oakland, with coverage extending far north and south of the city limits. The network runs through highly populated central areas like Oak Tree, Saint Elizabeth, Melrose, and Lake Merritt.

The same is true for Xfinity, one of the region_s most well-known cable networks. Coverage reaches every part of Oakland and many communities lying to the north, south, east, and west of the city.

Last but not least, the fiber and DSL networks of AT&T offer service options to much of Oakland, as well.

Cesar L | 06-22-2014

Comcast internet can be really fast at times, but I've had connection issues frequently where I'm unable to connect and/or the internet is really slow. The price is extremely high in my opinion, specially if you combine it with a TV package. I've tried most of the other services available, and Comcast speed is definitely the best (even based on price). Customer Service sometimes is amazing, other times it has been mediocre.
