Highest-rated internet providers in Minneapolis
Coverage between CenturyLink and Xfinity might be comparable, but there’s more to a provider than just its service area. Customer satisfaction scores can be a great indicator of what to expect from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), and we can learn a lot by comparing providers in Minneapolis.
In our own customer satisfaction survey, Xfinity scored five places higher than CenturyLink in overall satisfaction. Although Xfinity once had a reputation for poor customer service, the company has made big positive changes and customers are taking note. Xfinity also outscored CenturyLink in the speed and reliability categories.
J.D. Power ranked Xfinity as the second-best internet provider in all regions of the United States except for the West, where it came in fifth but still ranked above CenturyLink. Mediacom scored lower overall than both CenturyLink and Xfinity.
While each of these providers offers its own strengths, we do think Xfinity’s reliability and speed place it a cut above the rest—as long as it’s available in your neighborhood.
Fastest internet service providers in Minneapolis
CenturyLink offers internet at speeds up to 1000 Mbps
Xfinity offers internet at speeds up to 1000 Mbps
Mediacom offers internet at speeds up to 100 Mbps
Viasat offers internet at speeds up to 25 Mbps
When it comes to speed, Xfinity is one of the best in the business, and CenturyLink is no slouch either. Both providers offer speeds up to 1,000 Mbps in Minneapolis, which is faster than most people need. Mediacom offers speeds up to 100 Mbps, which seems low compared to 1,000 Mbps but is still plenty for a household of streamers.
Only Viasat falls short in the speed department, but that’s because satellite internet tends to be a little slower than cable. The signal does come from space, after all. But Viasat makes up for slower speeds with unbeatable availability. No matter how far out from town you may live or travel, you can still connect online with Viasat.
