Highest-rated internet providers in Cincinnati
Although it’s not cool enough to find at the bustling and rustic Findlay Market, EarthLink is still the highest-rated internet provider in Cincinnati. In our annual customer satisfaction survey, EarthLink takes first place on the list and also ranks in the top three for speed, installation, reliability, billing, and other individual categories.
Spectrum gets middle rankings overall, but comes in the top five for speed and reliability—two of the most important categories. AT&T also lands somewhere around the middle, but it performs well when it comes to speed and installation.
CenturyLink mostly sticks around the middle of the pack. You won’t get the same level of speeds and will likely experience more slowing during high-traffic times with its DSL service. But it ranks highly for billing, since it has good prices on fiber plans and Price for Life guarantees on DSL.
If you live in a rural area of Cincinnati or just on a mysterious street where land-based internet service isn’t available, satellite internet is there for you. There are two satellite providers, Viasat and HughesNet. Viasat isn’t featured in our survey, but HughesNet ranks around the middle in most categories.
