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.

Ken Tarpley|2016-04-16

We switch from our former internet provider because they had overage fees and we have four teenagers in our house and they stream movies. The fees were terrible and we also had slow service. We paid for one speed and got much less. Changed to WoW and have had a great experience. They offer a business class service for little money and we get more speed than they advertise. They have no data caps. No overage charges. It is a rare thing to get more than you pay for. Thank you Wow.
