Milwaukee Residential Internet Coverage

Located along the coast of eastern Wisconsin on Lake Michigan, the city of Milwaukee is one of the largest in Wisconsin.

AT&T has an extremely large DSL network that reaches all of Milwaukee, reaching neighboring communities like Waukesha and West Bend. Granville, Northridge, and Ridgeview are some of the northernmost neighborhoods that fit in the AT&T service area. Coverage is available as far south as Mitchell Field and New Coein.

High-speed cable is widely available through Time Warner Cable. Starting in the northern neighborhoods of Dretzka Park and Pheasant Run, the network runs through the central communities of Hillside and Concordia before reaching Maitland Park and Copernicus Park in the south.

Service is also available along the eastern coast, with all of these providers covering areas like Lake Park, Historic Third Ward, Jones Island, and Bayview. Some of the most heavily populated neighborhoods in Milwaukee have multiple internet connection options. These neighborhoods include Lincoln Village, Polonia, and Southgate.

As a 10 plus yrs customer I would most definitely recommend AT&T high speed internet to anyone who’s willing to listen. I’d tried one other company and with great disappointment of that service network I chose AT&T instead with no regrets. Their signal strength is unmatched by others along with magnificent clarity while streaming high speed/definition videos or streaming music. It’s a win win.

Spectrum sent me a bill for two months when I called they claimed it was for a late bill from Aug 2021 but I have all the bank statements and screenshots from payments been with them 2 years and has always paid the same way around the same time. I'm annoyed and they steady trying to justify it... they lost a customer!

Worst possible billing department. It's a wonder they can function at all with so many departments that don't speak to each other.

I like my wi-fi service provided by Time Warner Cable. It is pretty quick and hasa good, strong signal but I believe it could be a little more reasonably priced.
