Altavista Residential Internet Coverage
With about 3,400 people, Altavista is one of Virginia's many rural communities. In terms of geography, it's fairly large, creating a substantial need for Internet service providers with established and reliable networks.
One Internet service provider that has made a major difference in Altavista is CenturyLink. CenturyLink boasts a huge network that covers all of Altavista, from Leesville to Lynch Station and downtown.
Xfinity also has a well-developed network in this region. In addition to reaching all of the main neighborhoods of Altavista, the Xfinity network reaches many outlying cities to the north, south, and west.
The main local provider to serve the Altavista area is Shentel. Through Shentel, those in northern Altavista enjoy consistent coverage. Service is somewhat limited south of the highway, with only a few small neighborhoods falling into the coverage area. However, Shentel does have extremely fast service. It reports download speeds as high as 100 Mbps.
