Seattle Residential Internet Coverage

With dozens of separate neighborhoods, Seattle has a huge need for established internet service providers. Two of the largest fiber internet providers in Seattle are Frontier FiOS and Centurylink Prism.

The Centurylink Prism network reaches most of northeastern and southwestern Seattle. Southeastern and central Seattle fall outside the Centurylink Prism service area. DSL service is offered by CenturyLink to all of Seattle, running from Haller Lake in the north to Rainier Beach in the south, and from Magnolia in the west to Sand Point in the east.

Frontier FiOS is available in a few northern neighborhoods, including Broadview and Bitter Lake.

In addition to those two powerhouses, all of Seattle is in the Xfinity service area, providing options for high-speed cable to residents throughout the city. Similarly, the Megapath network includes the entirety of Seattle.

Through Wave Broadband, those in central and southeastern Seattle enjoy service to high-speed internet service. Coverage stops short of Fremont in the north and Riverview in the west.

Kevin Henne | 2016-09-01

I'm getting 110Mbps* consistantly on my laptop (via wireless router that is connected to by cable modem, using a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem and a AC dual band wifi router). * I needed to add a wifi extender to boost the router signal to reach all 3 floors of my home, so these speeds come at some additional hardware costs. But over all Comcast is the fastest provider, and if you like to stream 4K or 8K you tube videos or 4k content on Netflix or 4K Amazon films on the newer line of TV's (4K) then Xfinity is really your only choice.

Anthony Coraggio | 2016-03-28

My service with Comcast has been generally acceptable, but frequent slow-downs and poor download speeds can be frustrating at times. Streaming and regular internet use is usually alright, but heavier downloads are usually throttled very harshly (ie. digitally delivered software) with no other use on the line.

We have used Comcast internet for the past 2 years for our small business. Minus a few days when the internet was down, service has been satisfactory, though recently, the price of our package has encouraged us to look into other providers.
