Manchester Residential Internet Coverage

The city of Manchester is home to over 58,000 residents and many businesses, which creates a high demand for reliable internet service. Depending on your speed needs, there are many options to consider.

Fiber internet is a high-speed option for urban centers. This service has been expanding across Manchester and other Connecticut cities. Currently, Frontier is available in outer Manchester neighborhoods like Hillstown and Highland Park.

AT&T has one of the most established networks in Manchester. Currently, AT&T offers both fiber and DSL service in this city. Service extends well beyond Manchester's city limits, making it easy for those living in suburban areas to get high-speed internet.

Through Xfinity, several key Manchester neighborhoods can access cable service. However, service is unavailable in some central and northwestern parts of the city. Excluded neighborhoods include Buckland and Tolland Turnpike.

The western half of Manchester has consistent internet coverage through Cox Communications. This company offers coverage as far east as Hartford and Oakland, with service stopping just short of Manchester Green.
