Gaithersburg Residential Internet Coverage

The historic city of Gaithersburg is divided into many distinct neighborhoods that highlight the city_s cultures and history. Depending on which neighborhood you live in, you may have numerous choices when it comes to your internet service.

A major player in Gaithersburg is Verizon Fios, which brings fast fiber internet to neighborhoods as far north as Laytonsville and as far south as Lake Winds Way. Similarly, Verizon DSL is available in the entire city of Gaithersburg.

Through Windstream, most Gaithersburg residents have access to speeds as high as 25Mbps. Only two small neighborhoods in central Gaithersburg fall outside the Windstream service area.

RCN serves most Gaithersburg neighborhoods, excluding Redland in the south and Metropolitan Grove in the north. This is extremely similar to Atlantic Broadband_s coverage map.

Both Megapath and Level 3 Communications have expansive networks that reach nearly all of Gaithersburg.

Through Atlantech Online, those in the central area of Gaithersburg enjoy consistent access to service. The network runs through the central strip of the city from north to south, stopping west of Hunting Hill and east of Redland.

We have Comcast internet service and so far, are happy with it. The service is very reliable and the speed is pretty fast. Pricing is on the high side, but if I some times end get promotional rates, which has helped with the pricing. Overall, I like Comcast's internet in term of speed as well as customer service. Thanks!
