What is the fastest internet provider in Sacramento?

AT&T is the fastest internet service provider (ISP) in Sacramento, with fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps, but much of Sacramento doesn’t have the fiber infrastructure required for those plans. 
The fastest widely available ISP in Sacramento is the cable internet provider, Xfinity, which offers speeds up to 1,200 Mbps. Xfinity scored second place in our fastest internet providers in 2022 analysis, second only to Google Fiber—pretty impressive for a cable ISP.

Wireless speeds may vary.

 

What is the cheapest internet provider in Sacramento?

Xfinity is the cheapest internet provider in Sacramento. Its Connect internet plan provides up to 50 Mbps of download speed for just $19.99 per month—this is probably the best option for most customers looking for a budget plan in Sacramento because of the wide availability and quality of service provided by Xfinity.  

Other options include the DSL provider, Consolidated Communications’ 50 Mbps internet plan for $25.00 per month, and the Satellite ISP, Viastat’s Liberty 12 internet plan for $30.00 per month. Viasat’s budget plan only provides 12 Mbps speeds—but on the upside, you can get the service pretty much anywhere.

What are the fiber internet providers in Sacramento?

Sacramento’s only fiber internet provider is AT&T. The good news is that if you’re only going to have access to a single fiber ISP, AT&T is a great choice—AT&T internet plans feature no annual contracts, no data caps, and no 12-month price hikes. AT&T also has a great selection of plans to choose from and fair rates. 

Fiber internet providers in Sacramento

AT&T —Fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps

 

What is the best internet provider in Sacramento?

AT&T is our pick for the best internet in Sacramento. It has the widest coverage in the area, especially downtown. It offers both DSL and fiber-optic internet, with fiber speeds reaching up to 5,000 Mbps (although its 300 Mbps plan is a more reasonable pick for most people). Whether you’re looking for a turbo-charged experience or just need affordable internet for basic tasks, there’s a good chance AT&T has an internet plan for you.

EarthLink is also widely available because it uses internet bandwidth from other providers’ networks and resells it to its customers. This means your EarthLink service will differ depending on where you live and which network it’s selling you space on. This also means that EarthLink plans often cost more than similar plans on other networks, but it makes up for this disadvantage with straightforward pricing, unlimited data, and, most importantly, great customer service. This has earned EarthLink the top spot in our annual customer survey two years in a row.

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.

Highest-rated internet providers in Sacramento

EarthLink is currently the top-rated internet service provider in Sacramento and offers both DSL and cable connections. It is followed by AT&T (DSL, fiber), and Frontier (fiber). Overall, Sacramento is definitely the place to be for fast fiber internet connections.

In our annual customer satisfaction survey, EarthLink ranked first place in overall customer satisfaction. AT&T landed in second place while Xfinity ranked eleventh out of 12. We didn’t receive enough respondents for Frontier to gauge customer satisfaction for our survey published in 2021.

Overall, EarthLink dominated the top spots for customer satisfaction in speed, price, reliability, and customer service. AT&T remained in the top five across those four categories while Xfinity remained in the bottom half. In terms of customer service and price, Xfinity ranked last out of 12.

What’s notable is that AT&T held its place as other internet providers (except EarthLink) dropped in ranks over the past year. AT&T’s fiber customers helped fuel its ratings across the board, although the individual fiber satisfaction scores weren’t that much higher than the DSL scores.

Kay M | 01-11-2022

Both internet and cable are undependable. Internet service just goes into molasses speed every so often or quits working--same with cable. Works alright for awhile then problems start up again. Seems like they need to replace all of their old equipment in neighborhoods like ours. Also, we have insisted that that they change routers frequently. I guess I am going to buy my own soon but I'm not sure that will fix the problem.
