Which internet providers in Minneapolis are the cheapest?

Xtream Powered by Mediacom offers the cheapest internet plan in the area, offering speeds up to 100 Mbps for $19.99 per month. That’s a steal, and the price increases by just $10 after the promotional period. Xfinity’s 300 Mbps cable internet plan is your next best bet for $39.99 per month, although you must pay $30.00 more each month if you want unlimited data.

Gigabit plans are relatively cheap across the board, ranging from $65.00 to $70.00 per month, excluding Mediacom’s plan (it increases to $129.99 after the first 12 months). Xfinity’s 1,200 Mbps plan costs $79.99 per month, which isn’t bad until you factor in the extra $30 for unlimited data if you need it.

Minneapolis residential internet coverage

CenturyLink is a DSL and fiber internet provider in Minneapolis. It has the largest coverage in the entire Minneapolis metro area, the surrounding suburbs, and other outlying areas. Its fastest fiber plan reaches up to 940 Mbps and its DSL internet service tops out at 140 Mbps.

Xfinity is a cable internet provider. It’s close behind in terms of coverage, but it falls short in the far eastern and western parts of the metro area. The coverage is not quite as widespread as CenturyLink, but all the major neighborhoods should get service. Its fastest cable internet speed is 1,200 Mbps.

Xtream Powered by Mediacom is another cable internet provider with a smaller presence in Minneapolis—mostly on the southwest side of the city. The speeds are also slower than Xfinity or CenturyLink. It’s a solid choice if you want to go with a smaller cable provider.

Viasat and HughesNet satellite services are available in areas that don’t have landline access or for those who aren’t happy with the landline options. Satellite internet is slower and more expensive, however.

Century Link is overpriced...and the speed is so slow that I cant even watch television without it buffering constantly. I have called customer support several times and get transferred all over. I have one t.v. and one phone. Nothing else that runs off internet so no reason for slowing.

I used century link a couple years ago and had no issues. This year.. to start, setting up service was horrible. Took at least 2 hours from start to finish between online and over the phone. Over the phone I ended up hanging up on the service provider because he was unprofessional and I had been on the line with him for 45 minutes and got nowhere with my order. Today someone was supposed to come out from 3-5. I called at 4:30 to confirm they were coming because I got no confirmation today. After hearing nothing from them, I called again at 5:00. They said they should be arriving 20 minutes later. It is now over almost 2 hours past the end of the instillation window and I've been told 3 times that the technician will call me. I also got an email showing the bill I will be getting and it is more than discussed in the original call (which unfortunately they don't email you record of upon setting up service). Unless they offer something big for the inconvenience of this entire experience, I will be canceling immediately. Don't bother trying to get a slightly cheaper rate and just go with another option

I am absolutely livid. I have been on hold after telling the customer service rep I wanted to discontinue all services for more than an hour. I am dropping Century Link because their pricing is ridiculous; the rates constantly inch upward as "promotions" expire. When I was on Autopay I was consistently overcharged and had to waste time having my bill corrected. My mother, another one-time CL customer, was told by a CL employee to "never enroll in the autopay program", as it was notorious for billing mistakes. Resounding praise from your own employee! Every change I have tried to make to my account has been a hassle. I have wasted more hours of time and gas driving to brick and mortar stores to correct issues that should have been easily rectified over the phone than I can account for. I plan to have a party when I am finally rid of this company!
