Amherst Residential Internet Coverage

Conveniently located near large cities like Elyria and Lorain, the city of Amherst is a growing community of its own. Currently, about 12,000 people call this city home. Several local and national Internet service providers offer coverage in this region.

Everyone in Amherst falls within the coverage area of CenturyLink. With its well-known DSL service, CenturyLink offers a range of plans to accommodate different budgets. The network is expansive, reaching Cooper Foster Park in the north, Kendeigh Corner in the south, Henrietta in the west, and Middle Ridge in the east.

One option available to some in Amherst is Windstream. The Windstream network is slightly smaller than the CenturyLink network. It reaches most of central and southern Amherst, but does not quite reach Cooper Foster Park in the north or Henrietta in the west.

Those interested in cable service can check out Time Warner Spectrum. Cable plans cover a wide range of prices and offer competitive download speeds. The Time Warner Spectrum network covers all of Amherst and many surrounding areas.

Internet speed is adequate, wish the price was lower. Customer service is fine. We had to replace the router.
