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.

Julia R | 2014-12-30

I currently have Verizon, and since I have moved I have been having problems with my internet service. I have called several times to get help with the problem, but I continue to have problems with my service as far as speed is concerned. I am really interested in switching to another internet service provider.

I enjoy the internet service that I currently subscribe to. They may be a little on the expensive side, but they are overall dependable. I generally do not have any trouble logging in as well as staying connected while using the internet. The bills are straight forward and the customer service is good andhas always been helpful when I have needed them. They are professional and pride themselves in making the customer satisfied.

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.
