Alexandria Residential Internet Coverage

Lying just outside of Washington DC, Alexandria hugs the borders of Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland. As a major metropolitan area, it has many established local and national internet service providers.

Those preferring the speed of fiber internet often choose Verizon FiOS, although this provider_s network is currently limited to the northern and southern edges of Alexandria. Covered northern neighborhoods include Alexandria Wrest and North Ridge. Those with coverage in the south include Old Town and part of Landmark.

Verizon makes high-speed DSL service available to all of Alexandria.

Xfinity has an expansive cable network in this area that reaches all of Alexandria, plus a few communities to the south of the city.

RCN is widely available in central and western parts of Alexandria. Stretching from Alexandria Wrest in the northwest through Seminary Hill, service stops short of Taylor Run and Potomac Yard. Old Town and Old Town North both fall outside the RCN service area.

Not to be outdone, Megapath is a competitive company in this region, bringing internet packages to the entire metropolitan area of Alexandria.
