Knoxville Residential Internet Coverage

The city of Knoxville is one of the most well-known in Tennessee, currently home to almost 200,000 people and many successful business enterprises. Quite a few local and national internet service companies serve this area.

AT&T, with its fiber network and DSL network, serves the entirety of Knoxville. The coverage map reaches neighborhoods like Oakwood, Beaumont, Morningside, and Park City.

The Frontier Communications network is slightly smaller, primarily serving the northwestern portion of the city. This includes the neighborhoods of Mechanicsville and College Hills.

Cable provider Xfinity not only reaches all of Knoxville, it spreads its network into outlying communities.

Through its rival Charter, service is only available in the part of Knoxville that lies south of the Tennessee River. This includes South Knoxville and Old Sevier. On the flip side, WOW! brings consistent coverage to western Knoxville, offering service to Fort Sanders, Mechanicsville, Beaumont, College Hills, and Oakwood.

Telephone and Data Systems covers the far northern areas of Belle Morris and Old North Knoxville.

Ben V | 04-30-2023

i had ATT&T for 2yrs, fiber speed was great but the modem/WiFi was garbage and they 'made' me [proprietary] rent it. after 1.5yr they 'upgraded' it with a new model which was barely better. when they upped my price, i finally got tired of renting their POS WiFi and moved to another provider.

The price has gone up sky high, I called to change, they connected me to a person who took my deposit of of over 33.00. They sent me boxes in the mail, then asked me to return, which I did. When I called for my refund, that connected me to the same office, I asked for a refund, and have yet to get it in the mail! Don't trust this company. I'm trying to find another provider in my area!

Bottom of the barrel customer service across the company. Technicians actively avoid working with you and make you do unnecessary account validation steps to try to get you off of the phone. Run from them if you can.
