Power ranks AT&T third among ISPs in the region, beating out both Xfinity and Frontier.
Xfinity ranks lower overall than AT&T in our survey, but it scores very highly in several individual categories: third place for speed, second place for reliability, and fourth place for installation. If speed and reliability are what you’re looking for in an ISP, we think you’ll be happy with Xfinity.
Frontier falls short of the other two providers in most areas, but it does rank fourth in monthly billing: if you’re looking for an affordable internet plan that still gets the job done, Frontier may be a good choice.
Spectrum ranks higher than Xfinity according to J.D. Power, coming in fourth overall for best internet providers in the West. Spectrum received mediocre marks on our customer satisfaction survey, coming in around the middle for overall satisfaction and internet speed.
