What is the best internet provider in Reading?

Reading Residential Internet Coverage

With nearly 100,000 people, Reading is a growing metropolitan area that is home to many businesses and households that require stable internet access. Luckily, there are many diverse cable, DSL, satellite, and fiber providers in this city.

Verizon is one of the most well-established ISPs in Reading, its service area solidly covering the entire city and reaching outlying rural areas.

Frontier Communications, which provides DSL to Reading, serves some northern neighborhoods like Northmont, Glenside, Stony Creek Mills, and Hampden Heights. Service is not generally available south of the Warren Street Bypass.

Far eastern Reading communities are covered by Windstream. Service reaches the neighborhoods of Stony Creek Mills, Hill Road, Schwarzwald Heights, and Jacksonwald. Service stops just short of 13th Street, so coverage is not available west of this area.

With a service map that reaches all of Reading_s neighborhoods, Xfinity is a popular cable choice in this area. Similarly, TOAST.net spans all of Reading with its consistent coverage.

Through Megapath, those living east of Montrose Manor, Cornwall Terrace, and Whitfield have access to internet. The outlying neighborhood of Fritztown falls outside of Megapath_s map.

Additionally, Level 3 Communications provides service through most of central Reading, running from north central areas like Riverview Park and Glenside through to Flying Hills and Pennwyn. On the way, service is available in Northmont, Oakbrook, and East Reading.

Quite a bit of Reading is served by Service Electric Cable TV, with the exception of central neighborhoods like Millmont, Canal Street, City Center, and Moss Street.

Love how fast my cable internet from Comcast is. It's kinda pricey tho and I do wish customer service was better, but it is the best in my area.
