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.

This is the worst customer service I’ve ever experienced. From over the phone agents and supervisors to chat people. They are rude they each tell different information. This company is the worst!!
