The centrally located city of Columbus is served by many established internet service providers, from local companies to national providers.

Fiber internet, in addition to DSL, is provided by AT&T. AT&T has an expansive service area in Columbus, covering the entirety of the city and reaching well beyond its limits to suburban and rural parts of Ohio.

Customers in central and northern Columbus can access internet through CenturyLink, which also has a small area of coverage in the southern half of the state. In the north, neighborhoods in the CenturyLink service area include Upper Arlington, Clintonville, and Worthington.

Through Frontier Communications, those living on the outskirts of Columbus and in its surrounding communities can access high-speed internet.

Cable internet is provided by Time Warner Cable, which brings service to all of Columbus, including edge neighborhoods like Westland, Brice-Tussing, and Whitehall.

Sherry Hillock | 2017-04-25

The apps don't work half the time since the twitch over. The internet is an absolute necessity these days. I live on less than $4,000 a year. So, when I have to pay out for internet fees just to communicate with my family that all live out state. Even I can't get free internet I would be happy being able to pay no more than $40 a month for high speed internet.

I've been with Time Warner Cable for many, many years, I'm on a fixed income and they always, with only one exception, work with me on pricing. So yes I did go to another ISP for a couple of years, but once again Time Warner is working with me and I'm happy to be back.

My Internet provider is one of the best I've ever chosen. It has one of the fastest broadband speeds that I have ever seen. WOW also has very helpful service available at a moments notice. We have multiple devices on only one network so speed and reliablity are truly important to us.
