Greensboro Residential Internet Coverage

There are numerous cable, satellite, fiber, and DSL providers in the Greensboro area.

Through Centurylink Prism, a growing fiber network is currently located at the eastern city limits of Greensboro. This network serves some edge neighborhoods, like those around Landerwood Drive and Stewarts Mill. CenturyLink also has a stable DSL network in this region. CenturyLink DSL serves the same neighborhoods as Centurylink Prism, but expands service inward toward the city center.

If you choose AT&T, all of Greensboro is in range of DSL, fiber internet, or both. The combined service area stretches from Friendship in the west to Greesons Crossroads in the east, reaching the northern neighborhood of Rudd and the southern neighborhood of Miles Crossroad.

The expansive Time Warner Cable network brings high-speed cable service to all of Greensboro, reaching the border neighborhoods and central neighborhoods like Glenwood, Oak Grove, and Latham Park.

North State Communications serves much of southern Greensboro and parts of the western half of the city. In the west, the service map covers Pomona, Terra Cotta, Hilltop, and Hamilton Lakes. Southern areas that fall into this service area include Forest Oaks, Groometown, and Mount Zion.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Greensboro


Honestly, what choice do you have when providers are limited in the area? TWC recently bought out by Spectrum. They are doing everything to bring on new customers but absolutely nothing to keep customers. However, you made sure to increase my bill the moment my promotion ended. I will certainly be switching in the near future to another service provider. A paying customer who has never missed a payment and I have my own modem. I have never called in with any complaints. Initially, started out with a medium internet speed and immediately realized I needed to upgrade. One service call in one year. I would say I have been a customer that should have been called at the end of my promotion to see what could be done to keep my service. Again, it was just a promotion. Very sad that big business in today's time continue to abuse the loyalty of their customers.

Good enough service for a price. Occasional technical issues, but nothing a modem reset doesn't fix.

While I did have some problems with TWC in the past, and in fact still don't like some of the miscellaneous fees and such, I feel compelled to leave a positive review at this point because the service has improved quite a bit. In my area at least, speed and reliability have really improved recently, so that I'm actually very happy with what I'm getting. Good job, TWC.

Time Warner Cable is one of the few providers of internet in my area. This is unfortunate because it leaves consumers without many options for the service. I have been unhappy with Time Warner Cable for quite some time. They are going to increase rates again as well as the "modem lease fee," something they do with fair frequency. They have service issues regularly enough (slow net or outages) but they are nearly impossible to get credits from even when you do not receive service. for extended periods. Their only redeeming quality is that they are the only reliable choice for high speed internet in my area so if I want that service I have no choice but to pay for Time Warner. The moment another reliable option establishes a presence in my area is the day I switch to another provider.
