Waltham Residential Internet Coverage

The city of Waltham sits at the junction of three of the largest highways in Massachusetts, which makes it an important part of the region's infrastructure. Depending on your internet needs, you have several options when it comes to cable, satellite, fiber optic, and DSL.

Verizon Fios is one of the biggest fiber optic providers in Waltham. The coverage area includes the whole city, reaching neighborhoods like Waltham Highlands, Lakeview, and Camp Cabot.

Looking for cable options? Look into Xfinity. This national cable company offers high-speed service to all of Waltham, including neighborhoods like Kingston, Eastview Park, and Beaver Brook Station.

RCN is well established in Waltham. Service extends to parts of Lakeview and Kingston, stopping before reaching the western city limits. In the east, coverage stops before reaching Camp Cabot.

One of the largest networks in this city is Atlantic Broadband, which boasts coverage throughout the entirety of Waltham.

WORST customer service. automated service won’t allow you to speak to an agent NEVER showed up for appointment. Called CS spoke on phone for 3 hours. Promised a supervisors would call back I stayed on hold anyway. They hung up on me no manager called back. I’m loving back to Verizon. Spent over 10 hours on this issue. They are horrendous

I'll say RCN is the best one, but they do not cover a lot of places in Waltham. They are fastest, you only need 500 speed for basic needs, even gaming for several people. If you want to buy 1G plan, you will need to buy better equipment, or your internet will have shocks and shut down for several minutes because its way too fast. Last summer we had comcast and it keeping having internet outages at 10pm-6am. So we switched to RCN, which did not give us headache like comcast.
