Customers in the Lexington metropolitan area have a variety of options for cable, DSL, satellite, and fiber internet.

One of the main providers of fiber and DSL in Lexington is AT&T. Their coverage map includes much of central Lexington, including Southern Park, Central Downtown, and Fairway-Liberty Heights.

The coverage map of Time Warner Cable is similar, although Time Warner Cable serves all parts of Mount Vernon in addition to other Lexington neighborhoods. In the northwest part of the city, coverage is available in Gardenside, Holiday Hills, Cardinal Hill, and Douglas Park. Service runs east to the northeastern communities of Elkhorn Parks, Thoroughbred Acres, Warrenton, and Kenawood.

In addition, TW cable is available through the central part of the city, reaching southeastern communities like Idle Hour, Reservorir, Ashland Park, and Southeastern Hills. In the southwestern part of the city, covered neighborhoods include Garden Springs, Southland, Twin Oaks, and Indian Hills.

Although Mediacom currently has a limited service area in Lexington, coverage may expand in coming years.

Kimberly P | 11-22-2014

I have been an Insight customer for many years. Time Warner just bought them out so now I am a Time Warner customer. I have cable and internet. I don't think that anything can hold a candle to the speed of cable internet, however I do have a problem. Every few nights, everything I connect wifi will disconnect and I have to unplug my modem and router for five minutes, and then reconnect. It is pretty annoying, especially when I need to look something up before work and the internet isn't working. Overall though, the internet is fast and I can connect multiple devices and still get a great speed.

I have Time Warner and they have the fastest speed of any internet service in Lexington, Ky. The price is very high but other than that I am very pleased with their service

My internet speed is good, but it's way too expensive. I've never had any service issues so I can't really rate their service.
