Salinas Residential Internet Coverage

With over 157,000 people, the city of Salinas is a rapidly growing metropolitan hub of central California.

Those interested in DSL or fiber service can consider AT&T. The company_s DSL network reaches Bolsa Knolls in the north, Parker Road in the south, Prunedale in the west, and Spreckels in the east. The fiber network reaches some of the more highly populated Salinas neighborhoods.

Xfinity offers cable service to much of Salinas. Some areas along the eastern border of Salinas fall outside the service area of Xfinity. Competitor Charter has a small network that covers part of far northern Salinas and far eastern Salinas.

Through New Edge Networks, many Salinas residents enjoy high-speed internet access. Most of Bolsa Knolls is covered by New Edge Networks, excluding the easternmost edge of the neighborhood.
