Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best internet providers in the Las Vegas area?
How fast is Cox internet service?

Cox offers its fastest internet service, Gigablast, in Las Vegas. Gigablast reaches speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. If you have a big home that’s usually filled with people, you’ll love the bandwidth this package delivers.

Gigablast may not be available in every Las Vegas neighborhood. Before you choose Cox for its Gigablast package, ask your sales rep if it’s available at your address.

If Gigablast isn’t available near you, chances are you can still get the Cox Internet Ultimate package. Cox Internet Ultimate has a top speed of 300 Mbps, so it’ll provide the speed you need to stream video in Ultra HD or game online with minimal disruption.

How reliable is Cox internet service?

Expect your Cox internet reliability to be about average. In our 2018 independent customer satisfaction survey, Cox customers gave it 3.9 out of 5 stars for reliability. That score was good enough to rank seventh among twelve of the biggest internet providers in the US.

Cox scored better than CenturyLink—the other major internet provider in Las Vegas—but worse than Viasat, the top satellite internet provider. While Viasat scored higher for reliability, satellite internet has latency issues that cause annoying delays as the signal is transferred to and from the satellite. The service is reliable, but there’s no getting around the latency.

For reliable internet in Las Vegas that has good speed and low latency, Cox is your best option.

What happened to CenturyLink Prism TV?

In April 2018, CenturyLink stopped expanding its Prism TV service into new markets. Existing Prism subscribers can keep their current service. Customers in areas where Prism TV was already offered can still get it in some cases, but you may have to ask the sales rep for it directly.

Should I switch from CenturyLink?

CenturyLink offers affordable internet plans with decent speeds for the price, especially on its Gig package. Whether or not you should switch to CenturyLink depends on your current situation and what you’re looking for. For the full rundown, read our tips on switching internet providers.

If you have internet from Cox, the other primary provider in Las Vegas, the biggest reason to switch is to save money. But the only real difference in price between providers comes with the gigabit packages. If you’re choosing between Cox Gigablast and CenturyLink 1 Gig, go with CenturyLink—it’s much more affordable. For any other plans that offer lower than gigabit speeds, stick with Cox. Cox has better customer satisfaction scores. Get a detailed breakdown of how these two providers stack up by checking out CenturyLink vs. Cox.

Is LV.Net internet service any good?

LV.Net uses point-to-point technology to deliver internet service. It’s basically internet service delivered via radio waves. While this is useful for connecting underserved corners of the city, it’s susceptible to interference and disruption. For people with few or no other internet options, LV.Net is invaluable. But if you’ve got other providers in your area, you likely have a better option.

Las Vegas Residential Internet Coverage

Las Vegas is a well-connected city. Virtually 100% of Vegas residents have access to broadband internet speeds, which the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) defines as 25 Mbps download speeds and 3 Mbps upload speeds. And most residents have access to speeds even faster than that.

The only downside for Vegas residents is the lack of choices. While you have plenty of fast internet packages to choose from, those packages are mostly offered by just two providers: CenturyLink and Cox. Satellite internet from Viasat is also an option if you’re prepared to deal with latency.

The most widely available providers throughout the city are definitely Cox and CenturyLink. Folks living inside the beltway have the advantage of fast internet available from either ISP (Internet Service Provider).

The Cox service area stretches from Boulder City to Mount Charleston and from Nellis Air Force Base to near the Jean Airport, but it doesn’t cover the Bonnie Springs area.

CenturyLink offers service across an even larger area. Its coverage reaches down to Bullhead City and all the way up to Coyote Springs. It also offers service in Moapa Valley, south of I-15. CenturyLink doesn’t fully cover the Lake Mead or Sloan Canyon areas.

 

Highest-Rated Internet Service Providers in Las Vegas

Cox was the highest-rated landline internet provider in Las Vegas in our 2018 independent customer satisfaction survey. It beat out CenturyLink in every section accept the monthly bill category.

These ratings hold true using other metrics too. Cox Communications in Las Vegas has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). CenturyLink is not rated and has some red flags with the BBB, namely an unresolved government action regarding customers complaining they’re being charged more than they agreed on.

Cox Communications is also the highest rated ISP in the West, according to J.D. Power. Not only does J.D. Power rank Cox ahead of CenturyLink, but it also ranks Cox ahead of industry giants AT&T, Spectrum, and Xfinity.

While Cox dominated CenturyLink on the ground, Viasat rules the skies. Customers rated Viasat, a satellite ISP, higher than both CenturyLink and Cox in every category in our survey, including reliability. These ratings indicate that Viasat is an excellent option for customers who don’t mind the limitations of satellite internet.
