Lubbock Residential Internet Coverage

Both national internet service providers and local internet service providers are present in the city of Lubbock, with service areas overlapping quite a bit in this metropolitan area.

Major provider AT&T offers DSL to almost the entire city of Lubbock, and their fiber network is growing slowly in Lubbock and surrounding areas. Windstream services cover a large service area that covers western communities like Bowie and Arnett Benson. In the north, coverage reaches as far as North Lubbock. The eastern network stretches as far as Parkway and Guadalupe.

Cable internet is provided by Suddenlink Communications to nearly all of Lubbock, including Stubbs, Caprice, Wham, and Adobe Row. The South Plains Telephone Cooperative has a limited presence throughout Lubbock.

The eastern part of Lubbock enjoys service through NTS Communications. Service runs south to the loop and north to Parkway. Ballenger and Slaton-Bean are part of the provider_s central service area.

Sheri E | 09-20-2023

Worse service ever. I have called repeatedly for tech support to be put on hold for over an hour then the person I talk to doesn't even know how to help me. I keep losing my internet access and when it goes down so does my phone. Most of the time I don't even know my service is down. How do you call and complain if you don't have a working internet on phone. Do NOT use AT&T!

Constantly resetting the modem. We do not game. Usually only one thing streaming. Pricing has tripled. When I asked for a reduction of the bill it still would have been almost 30 dollars more than most cuz pay and then the lady informed me it wouldn't do any good to reduce my bill. Then the bill increased again. I wish I could leave them negative stars. Their customer service is awful.
