Durham Residential Internet Coverage

The northern city of Durham lies near the border that North Carolina shares with Virginia. With over 250,000 residents, this growing metropolis has many national and local internet service companies that bring consistent coverage to residents and businesses.

Through Centurylink Prism, a small part of Durham can access fiber internet. This network is expanding, but currently serves the southwestern neighborhoods of Blands and Farrington. CenturyLink has an identical DSL network.

AT&T offers both fiber coverage and DSL coverage to Durham. Some places have access to one or the other, while others fall within both networks. AT&T service is primarily available in the outer edges of Durham; central neighborhoods like Joyland, Oak Grove, and Gorman are not in the AT&T network. However, AT&T does bring internet to outlying neighborhoods like Rougemont, Fox Run, Huckleberry Spring, and Bethesda.

National provider Frontier Communications has a huge service area that reaches the entirety of Durham. The same is true for Time Warner Cable, one of the largest cable providers in this area.

been a customer with TWC/Spectrum for over 20 years, and they are prices are very high compared to competition. they would not come down in price on my current package, would only reduce monthly fee but removing features from my package. internet is spotty on many occasions, and cable rarely allow me to watch programs, and it would be not available at that time. If you can get internet/cable with another company, I highly suggest. They do not care about customer loyalty

They are the worst. The don’t care about customer service, way over price, worst experience ever. I do not recommend them. U better off with no internet then having them, use your own hotspot is cheaper and better.
