Downtown Stonington is located at the base of a hill facing the ocean. As a result, we are not covered directly by any cell phone service. Other parts of town, however, do have cell service thanks to two new towers (late 2011 and early 2012) that were erected in neighboring Deer Isle. Verizon and US Cellular are the two that offer the best service in the area.


The only public wireless connection that is available 24 hours a day is located at the Stonington Public Library, Main St. You can sit on the bench outside or in a limited range around the building to access the wi-fi at anytime. Library is open Tuesday & Friday afternoons and Saturday 10 -2.

Wireless is also available at Susie Q’s coffee shop and country store, 40 School St. (up the hill from the Opera House), open June – October.

Boyce’s Motel and Inn on the Harbor both have wireless service for their guests.
