Pittsburgh Residential Internet Coverage

As one of the largest cities in Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is home to several local and national internet service providers.

Fiber internet is available through Verizon Fios, which currently brings service to all of Pittsburgh except part of Marshall and West Oakland.

This is nearly identical to the Verizon service map, which covers West Oakland but still does not bring service to Marshall.

Windstream currently has a fairly limited service area in Pittsburgh, starting south of Southside Flats and reaching as far south as Hays and Brookline. Service reaches as far west as Beechview.

Through Xfinity, almost every home and business in Pittsburgh benefits from access to high-speed internet. The only neighborhoods that fall outside of the service area are Perry South and part of Squirrel Hill.

Megapath has a far-reaching service area that runs as far west as Fairywood and Wing Gap. The service map reaches the eastern communities of Homewood North and East Hills. Far northern neighborhoods like Perry North and Summer Hill are within this large service area, as are southern neighborhoods like Overbrook and Carrick.

Provider Level 3 Communications has a large service area that covers several parts of Pittsburgh, although service stops short of Perry South in the north and Esplen in the west. Coverage stops just outside of Mount Oliver in the south and Swisshelm Park in the east.

Currently, Cogent Communication offers service to a narrow strip of central Pittsburgh, including the Central Business District, Crawford Roberts, and Bedford Dwellings.

And last, covering all of the major neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, TOAST.net makes high-speed internet widely available.

Verizon's service and speed are pretty good. The only time I didn't have the internet is when we had a bad storm and the power went out. Every once in a while it might get a little slow for a little bit. But, that might be because I have several gadgets connected, too. But, over all I've been pretty happy with the service and speed. Now the price on the other hand seems a little expensive to me. But, in all actuality its pretty comparable to other services out there for the service and speed.

We've been fairly happy with Verizon Fios. The internet speed is very fast, and it rarely ever goes out.
