Chesapeake Residential Internet Coverage

Covering a significant area south of Norfolk, the city of Chesapeake is home to several expansive internet service providers that meet the needs of businesses and residents.

Through Verizon Fios, almost all of Chesapeake Bay enjoys high-speed fiber internet access. Coverage starts at the southern edge of Norfolk, running into the northern Chesapeake neighborhood of Deep Creek North and running south to Pleasant Grove. Through Verizon, customers have access to a well-established DSL network. This network covers the entirety of Chesapeake, running beyond the city limits in all directions. Coverage reaches Dismal Swamp in the west, Western Branch in the north, Butts Station in the east, and Pleasant Grove in the south.

Charter has a slightly smaller service area that currently reaches part of western Chesapeake. The service area stretches into Western Branch and part of Dismal Swamp, stretching beyond the western city limits into neighboring communities.

This service is excellent. We are very pleased over all. There haven't been any issues, not even on the rainy days. We would recommend "FiOS" to anyone.
