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.
