Erie Residential Internet Coverage

The coastal city of Erie is one of the largest in Pennsylvania, which is why many established internet service providers have expanding networks in this area.

Verizon is one of the most expansive in Erie, reaching all of its major neighborhoods. The service map runs as far as Vernondale in the west, Peninsula Drive in the north, Owens Corners in the east, and Kuhl in the south.

The entire city has access to high-speed cable internet through Time Warner Cable, which provides service to all of Erie and extends into bordering cities.

Local provider TOAST.net is also well-established in Erie, serving communities as far west as Swanville and as far east as Harborcreek.

Through Level 3 Communications, businesses and residents throughout Erie have high-speed internet options. In addition to covering the borders of the city, Level 3 Communications brings coverage to central neighborhoods like Belle Valley, Chestnut Hill, and Glenwood.

Internet service was out more than it was working. Spectrum went way down hill since the takeover . Time Warner Cable was awesome. How did Spectrum mess it up so bad.

Quite possibly the worst Internet service provider ever. Throttles service for $70 a month with frequent outages on top of that. Get a different ISP.

This company is a monopoly here in Erie Pa with the only service that has unlimited monthly data usage and has good speed. But their customer service is really bad. I even visited the local store and got a business card from a Rep there. I tried to email him as he told me to and found his email was not working. Then called on the phone and got someone who could not understand or refused to get me to the Rep at the local store. What a huge waste of time. Finally he mistakenly transferred me to someone in Technical Support who was helpful and nice. He said he messaged that Rep but I still have not heard back from them. They constantly raise your rates until your paying an arm and a leg because they know they have no competition here. Another service at a different location was dropping out and had to have the modem reset all the time. I was told to replace my modem and did at my expense but it didn't solve a thing. Thankfully that seems to have been resolved after a month or so of putting up with it. That by the way is with the original modem back online. Can't wait for a competitor to come up with a challenge to this monopoly.

Spectrum uses deceptive tactics to attempt to trick you into continuing service. The tell you there will only be a $5 increase that turns into $15. When you call the billing they tell you that unless you have a video recording of the conversation at the Spectrum store they do not believe you. I suggest anyone talking to an employee at the Spectrum store to video tape the conversation to protect yourself later.
