Which internet providers in Omaha are the cheapest?

Xtreme powered by Mediacom has the cheapest internet plan in Omaha, with speeds up to 100 Mbps for just $19.99 per month. You can’t beat the price, and it increases only by $10 after the first 12 months. By comparison, the 100 Mbps cable internet plan from Cox Communications sets you back $49.99 each month, but it’s far more widely available in Omaha than Mediacom.

If you want gigabit speeds, CenturyLink and Quantum Communications have fiber-optic internet for $65.00 per month, which is an excellent price compared to Cox ($99.99) and Mediacom ($129.99 after 12 months) cable internet. Plus, fiber has symmetrical speeds and better reliability than cable internet (if you can get it).

Which internet providers in Omaha are the fastest?

All landline internet providers in Omaha top out at 1,000 Mbps, but we suggest fiber if you can get it. Fiber has equal upload and download speeds, better reliability, and lower latency than cable internet. Quantum Communications and CenturyLink provide the fastest fiber internet for the same price, so you can’t go wrong with either one.

Mediacom’s gigabit cable internet plan is cheap for the first 12 months, but the price increases to $129.99 after that. Cox Communications is your only other cable internet alternative at $99.99 per month for gigabit speeds—with no price hikes like Xtreme powered by Mediacom.

Which internet providers have fiber in Omaha?

Quantum Communications and CenturyLink are the only fiber internet providers in Omaha. You can’t go wrong with either one—both offer identical plans at identical prices. Quantum Fiber has less availability than CenturyLink in Omaha, though.

Of the two, CenturyLink is the only provider ranked in our annual customer satisfaction survey. It scored last out of 12 on our list for overall satisfaction and remained last for speed and reliability satisfaction. Its best score was 9th out of 12 for price satisfaction. But our data did show fiber customers were much happier with their CenturyLink service than DSL users.

Omaha residential internet coverage

Omaha residents have plenty of fast internet available, with 98% of the area receiving broadband speeds of at least 25 Mbps. Unfortunately, there are only a couple of big providers that offer wide coverage around the city, so the choice is more limited than in other parts of the country.

CenturyLink is one of the fastest internet providers in Omaha with fiber internet reaching up to 940 Mbps. CenturyLink also has DSL internet if fiber isn’t in your area, but the maximum download speed is just 100 Mbps.

Cox Communications provides cable internet, which is a good alternative if fiber isn’t in your area. The maximum download speed matches CenturyLink’s fiber at 940 Mbps, but cable internet doesn’t have symmetrical speeds like fiber, so your uploads will be far slower than your downloads.

Xtreme powered by Mediacom is another cable internet provider in the area, but its availability is limited. The maximum download speed you’ll see is 100 Mbps.

HughesNet and Viasat are available everywhere in the Omaha area (and the rest of the US) if you prefer your internet to come from space. Viasat is your fastest satellite provider with speeds up to 100 Mbps.

Highest-rated internet service providers in Omaha

Of the internet providers available in Omaha, Cox scored the highest in our annual customer satisfaction survey for overall satisfaction, ranking fourth out of 12. Mediacom didn’t fare so well, landing in eighth place, while CenturyLink finished last. Rise Broadband didn’t have enough respondents to place it in our survey.

In terms of speed, price, reliability, and customer service, Cox mostly outranked the competition—except in one case. Mediacom ranked fourth out of 12 for customer satisfaction with reliability, followed by Cox (6th) and CenturyLink (12th).

The only category where CenturyLink outranked Mediacom was in price, which may be due to its Price for Life deal. Of those surveyed, 41% of CenturyLink customers were very satisfied or 100% satisfied with the price, while only35% of Mediacom customers said the same.

I’ve had century link for a couple years and their customer service doesn’t always seem to be able to help. Seems to lose wi fi quite often whe windy ape stormy an have gone for a few weeks without service. I get tired of being told to unplug and plug back in and it doesn’t works. Not sure why the can’t send a signal to reactivate service. Customer seems to have to do all the work.

It's a little costly but overall I've gotten what I paid for so far. Their service is decent, which is amazing for an ISP, and I have gigabyte in an suburb on the very edge of town.
