San Mateo Residential Internet Coverage

As one of the largest San Francisco suburbs, San Mateo is home to just over 100,000 people. The area has several established internet service providers that offer a wide range of plans to area residents and businesses.

AT&T brings both fiber internet and DSL internet to this city, with a DSL network that covers nearly all of San Mateo and a steadily growing fiber network. DSL is available in the far northern areas of Shoreview and North Central, reaching the southern neighborhoods of Sugerloaf and Hillsdale. Coverage runs along the coastal eastern border of the city, reaching East San Mateo. Coverage is steady through the middle of the city and stretches to the western neighborhood of Baywood Park.

Cable provider Xfinity also has a strong presence in San Mateo, covering the entirety of the city and many other San Francisco suburbs.

Service is available in select parts of San Mateo through New Edge Networks. North of Highway 92, major neighborhoods like Haywood, East San Mateo, Baywood-Aragon, and Downtown are within the New Edge Networks service area.

Astound Broadband brings coverage to northern San Mateo as well, but it also serves southern neighborhoods like Beresford, Marina Lagoon, Western Hills, and Hillsdale.

Finally, through Sonic.net, those in every major San Mateo neighborhood have access to high-speed internet.
