What is the best internet provider in San Francisco?

San Francisco Residential Internet Coverage

San Francisco is one of the largest cities in California, and as a result, numerous national and local internet companies have extensive networks in this area.

One option to consider is AT&T, which offers DSL and fiber service throughout San Francisco. The DSL network covers all of San Francisco, reaching as far west as Outer Sunset, as far north as North Beach, as far east as Potrero Hill, and as far south as Crocker Amazon. The fiber network is considerably smaller, although it is still in development.

Both Xfinity and Sonic.net bring coverage to almost all of San Francisco, with Sonic.net stopping short of the west coast in Lakeshore.

Through Raw Bandwidth Telecom, a few eastern neighborhoods enjoy access to high-speed internet. This company serves South of Market and Potrero Hill.

The New Edge Networks service area is slightly larger, reaching Lakeshore in the southwest, Bernal Heights and Inner Richmond in central San Francisco, and the northern neighborhood of Marina.

Most areas southeast of the financial district have coverage through Astound Broadband. South of Market and Mission are both in the service area of Race Communications, as well.

Karl C|2018-11-04

If you enjoy playing games with your internet provider, go with Xfinity. They know all the games. They will mess with your rates, increasing them over time, and they will nickel and dime you with little fees and charges. Want a consistent bill? You won't find it here. Instead you'll spend hours on the phone with them every few months trying to negotiate a package because every rate the offer is "promotional" and will increase after the promotion period. You would think that in Silicon Valley there would be a wide variety of providers, but unfortunately that is not the case, so we are left with Xfinity and all of their nonsense.

Jennifer Quigley|2015-02-09

I am looking for a better service provider. AT&T has difficulty keeping things fixed. When I call I am always told there is trouble on the line someone finds when resting it and makes attempt to repair. In less than a month, the issue comes back and another phone call is needed. They should have this stuff automated and know when there are issues to fix. Their customer service line is so automated, however, you will need to answer a dozen questions to get to a human, when half the time I need to transferred and the call breaks. It's too often that I need to call them. Mt website host even ran a trace route to see why I kept getting time outs and discovered AT&T was the issue. It is not great for business or home use. Good luck even trying to watch Netflix. It is an endless "network error" experience.
