What is the best internet provider in Phoenix?

Phoenix residential internet coverage

Cox and CenturyLink cover the most ground in Phoenix.

The main internet providers in Phoenix are Cox Communications and CenturyLink.

Cox has cable internet with speeds up to 940 Mbps in the Valley of the Sun. That’s dramatically faster than the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) broadband standard of 25 Mbps.

The Cox Communications service area covers most of Phoenix, Glendale, and Mesa. It stretches from Creek to South Mountain and from Sun City to Apache Junction. But it misses the Salt River Reservation.

CenturyLink has fiber internet speeds up to 940 Mbps in some areas, including parts of Camelback East Village, Alhambra, and Encanto Village. The rest of Phoenix has access to CenturyLink’s DSL internet with speeds up to 115 Mbps.

CenturyLink has a larger internet service area in Arizona as a whole. But CenturyLink and Cox cover mostly the same ground within city limits.

Sparklight, Mediacom, and other providers add competition in certain Phoenix neighborhoods.

A few internet providers—including Sparklight (Cable One), Mediacom, and Spectrum—have smaller service areas sprinkled throughout Phoenix. So, while most of Phoenix can get internet service from CenturyLink or Cox, a few neighborhoods get more options.

Local providers like Phoenix Internet, Geek Advisors, Zona Communications, and Ygnition Networks Inc also have smaller coverage areas throughout the city.

The speed is terrible. The sales pitch is say just the opposite. WHY MAKE YOUR EMPLOYEE LIE? Tell the real truth. 'We don't want to upgrade your neighborhood. You folks are just not worth it!????

The customer service agent kept calling my wife a sir when she is a female. They refunded us all our money back when never asked for it. Then demanded we pay the 55 dollars back if we wont our internet back on. This wasn't cool.

If i could give minus 5 stars I would. I've paid my bill on time then was overcharged so I called to get it straightened out. Was transferred 6 times over 3 hours on the phone. All i wanted was for them to charge me correctly and turn back on service since i was never late on a payment. Rude people that just kept transferring me. THIS COMPANY SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS. LIE STEAL AND FRAUD. Horrible service.
