Best internet providers in Los Angeles

The best internet providers in Los Angeles are EarthLink, AT&T Fiber, Frontier, Starry Internet, and Cox.

  • EarthLink: EarthLink offers DSL and fiber internet, and it got superb ratings in our latest customer satisfaction survey. It earned the top ranking for overall performance and for crucial categories like speed, reliability, and price.
  • AT&T Fiber: AT&T is best for gigabit (1,ooo Mbps) internet packages because it delivers much faster download speeds than Spectrum at the same price or cheaper. It’s beat by EarthLink on customer service, but it offers excellent internet service.
  • Frontier: Frontier is good for budget users since it offers no-contract plans—you can change internet providers whenever without paying expensive termination fees.
  • Starry Internet: Starry is a fixed wireless provider that offers an excellent combination of fast speeds, low prices, and good customer service. Its top speed is 200 Mbps, which is more than adequate, but it’s still not as fast as some fiber or cable internet plans.
  • Cox: Cox is a cable provider that offers gigabit download speeds (1,000 Mbps). Although Cox’s upload speeds aren’t as fast as you would get with a gigabit fiber connection, good download speed is the main consideration for the majority of online activities.

The fastest internet providers in Los Angeles are AT&T, Cox, Frontier, and EarthLink. These four providers offer gigabit speeds to 95% of Los Angeles.

AT&T

AT&T’s gigabit fiber plan, Internet 1000, delivers download speeds up to a gig (1,000 Mbps) and upload speeds up to 880 Mbps. That gives you more than enough speed to host livestreams from your apartment, oupload enormous files to cloud servers, or have multiple people at once streaming Netflix in Ultra HD.

Cox

Cox offers near-gigabit speeds (up to 940 Mbps). Tied with Frontier, Cox is the third-fastest internet provider in Los Angeles. While Cox’s Gigablast plan is available only in the Palos Verdes and San Pedro areas, coverage for slower speeds extends to the greater Los Angeles area. Also, Cox is the cheapest internet provider in Los Angeles. Cox offers 25 Mbps at $19.99 per month.

Frontier

Frontier, like Cox, offers near-gigabit speeds. Frontier’s connection is delivered via fiber and DSL. That means you get symmetrical upload and download speeds in some cases, but in other (more common) cases you get a rather sluggish connection that operates over your home’s landline phone network. Frontier is also contract-free, so it’s a good choice if you plan on moving.

EarthLink

EarthLink offers up to gigabit speeds (1,000 Mbps) via DSL and fiber. It’s extremely fast, it’s widely available everywhere in Los Angeles, and it enjoys the highest customer satisfaction rating for speed and reliability in our annual survey. If you’re able to get EarthLink in your area, you’ll likely be satisfied with your Los Angeles internet service.
