What is the best internet provider in Sacramento?

In Sacramento, the three big Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are AT&T, Xfinity, and Frontier. They’re all solid choices, but each offers slightly different availability, speed, and service, so there’s plenty of choice for different types of users looking for high-speed internet in Sacramento.

AT&T has the widest coverage in the area, especially downtown. It offers both DSL and fiber-optic internet, with fiber speeds reaching up to 1,000 Mbps. Whether you’re looking for a turbo-charged experience or just need cheap internet for basic tasks, there’s a good chance AT&T has an internet plan for you.

Xfinity covers most of the downtown area and eastern suburbs, bringing speedy and reliable cable internet service to residents of California’s capital. As long as you’re on the eastern side of town, Xfinity makes a great alternative to AT&T.

Frontier offers DSL service for some downtown and outlying areas, but coverage isn’t as consistent as it is with AT&T or Xfinity. And if you happen to be in an area where none of these providers have coverage, you can always count on satellite internet from Viasat or HughesNet.

Cable provides internet speeds faster than DSL through the same cables used for cable TV.

Highest-rated internet providers in Sacramento

AT&T is clearly the top-rated internet service provider in Sacramento. In our annual customer satisfaction survey, AT&T ranks second overall, and it also gets excellent scores for speed, monthly billing, reliability, and customer service. J.D. 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.
