Amherst Residential Internet Coverage

Amherst is one of the many established communities in Massachusetts. This city is home to almost 40,000 people and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Whether you're a student, a growing family, or a new professional, you could find an Internet plan that suits you in Amherst.

All of Amherst enjoys service through Xfinity. Service stops right at the city limits in most parts of Amherst, so those on the outskirts of this city are outside the coverage area. Coverage reaches North Amherst, Hampshire College in the south, Amherst Center in the west, and East Village in the east.

Another option that's growing in this part of Massachusetts is Charter. Through Charter, those in the outlying communities of Amherst can choose affordable cable service. Some of the areas that fall into the Charter coverage area include Lawrence Swamp, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the western edge of North Amherst, and Mountain View Circle.
