Las Vegas residential internet coverage
CenturyLink and Cox are the biggest high-speed internet providers in Las Vegas. Locals residing inside the beltway have the advantage of fast internet available from either provider. EarthLink is another provider serving fiber and DSL internet.
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. Plans range from 25 Mbps to 940 Mbps.
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. CenturyLink has two plans only: DSL internet with speeds up to 100 Mbps and fiber internet maxing out at 940 Mbps.
EarthLink has a range of plans across its DSL and fiber internet connections. Speeds for DSL range from 3 Mbps to 45 Mbps. Its fiber plans start at 75 Mbps and reach up to 1,000 Mbps.
Finally, Rise Broadband provides fixed wireless internet throughout most of the area. Viasat and HughesNet are your satellite internet alternatives if fixed wireless or landline internet is not available in your area.
