Alpena Residential Internet Coverage

Sitting along the coast of Thunder Bay, the city of Alpena is both naturally beautiful and full of city amenities. Over 10,000 people call this city home and rely on its many services. High speed Internet is a high priority for those living and working in this area, since it enables easy communication, studying, working, and entertainment.

One of the options you could explore as you start your search is Frontier. While Frontier does have a fiber optic network, it is also expanding its DSL network throughout the country. Some areas of Alpena fall into the Frontier network, and as coverage spread, the entire city could enjoy service in the years to come.

Charter is the largest cable provider in this part of Michigan. Its network is very established, reaching the entirety of Alpena. Service reaches Bolton in the north, Ossineke in the south, Spratt in the west, and Lakewood in the east.

I'm sick and in the hospital. Unable to use any of my service. I went on a short term seasonal plan. It expired and they charged me a new increased price, more then my original plan. I'm not able to use the services and they won't pro rate the new plan, so I will be cancelling with this company for good. Never had such problems with a network company.

Charter/Spectrum may be the largest provider in Alpena, but they closed their store & if you want to do business face to face you must drive down US 23 South 40 miles to Oscoda as there is nothing here. They DO have repair trucks here, we see them around town. This infomercial needs to be updated. But it IS helpful even if it IS outdated.

I really can't complain much about the internet service I get. The price is competitive, the speed is good and very rarely am I disconnected. Actually, I notice that disconnections happen much less often than with another provider I had prior to Charter. All in all I'm pleased with my internet service.
