Internet Availability in Davenport, IA

If you’re a Davenport resident, you have a few wired internet providers that offer service. If you’re looking for a specific provider, you’ll have to make sure you live within its coverage zone. Here’s a look at the available providers in Davenport and where they’re most available.

Mediacom is a cable internet provider with 97.8% availability in the city. Its coverage nearly covers all of Davenport, save for the patches of dead zones along West 5th Street and the Mississippi River by LeClaire Park. Public locations such as the Davenport Police Station and Dillon Memorial don’t have access to Mediacom, but most residential areas, including those northwest of the city center, fall within the provider’s coverage.

Another provider in the city is Metronet, which offers fiber internet service to residents. It has a 89.4% availability, so if you’re searching for a fiber alternative to Mediacom’s cable internet service, Metronet is your best bet. Whether you live in the Hamburg Historic District or work at the Figge Art Museum, you’re covered by Metronet. It also covers most of the areas along the Mississippi River, making up for Mediacom’s absence in certain areas.

Another fiber internet provider worth mentioning is Geneseo Communications, though it doesn’t have as strong a presence in Davenport as Metronet. Its absence is most noticeable in the neighborhoods around Jefferson Elementary School, but it does cover a significant portion of the neighborhoods along West 4th Street.

Lastly, if neither cable nor fiber isn’t an option for you, CenturyLink’s DSL service is another alternative. It’s available in 42.3% of the city, so while not as impactful as Mediacom in terms of presence, it’s a decent internet provider if you want to stick with older technology. You can count on CenturyLink to be accessible in most neighborhoods, though it shares the same absence with Mediacom along the Mississippi River.
