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!
