The city of Columbia in South Carolina serves millions of residents, tourists, and employees, which is why reliable internet service is so crucial.

Those who prefer the reliability of DSL can choose AT&T, a provider with a large service area that reaches almost all of Columbia. Northern communities in this city are Forest Hills, Heathwood, and Arcadia Lakes. Southern communities include Springdale and St. Andrews. Time Warner Cable, known for its national coverage map, offers high-speed cable to all of Columbia.

In addition to the neighborhoods listed above, Time Warner Cable is available in Melrose Heights, Shandon, Seven Oaks, and Forest Acres.

The speed of AT&T DSL is lacking, especially considering the cost. I get 6MB which is nowhere near fast enough without going business class. It should be much faster.
