Cable:

Cable provides internet speeds faster than DSL through the same cables used for cable TV.

Athens Residential Internet Coverage

Athens is the fifth largest community in Georgia. It's one of the most expensive places to live in the state. The residents tend to be well-educated, although more than one-third of them live below the federal poverty line. People of Hispanic or Latino descent account for more than 10% of the population.

High-speed internet is hard to come by in Athens. Currently, the only option is HughesNet satellite internet for both businesses and residents. This seems odd for such a large city.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Athens

AT&T Customer

Horrible speeds and service! My bill is never same each month, had to remove them from auto bill pay because of double billing. If you can avoid AT&T I would recommend it.

I love Comcast they have never done me wrong as long as I have been with them. I currently get my internet and cable tv services from them. I love the fast internet I never have to worry about it buffering or going out on me. On Demand has had to have been one of my favorites, being able to pick and choose what I want to watch has been great, not to mention the prices with them have been phenomenal! They don't try to cheat you like other dealers often do. I would never switch! LOVE COMCAST-Xfinity!
