What are the best internet providers?

We think Xfinity is the best internet provider overall because it delivers incredibly fast speeds on home internet plans. It also provides a lot of affordable options, and it’s one of the most widely available internet services in the US.

EarthLink is also fantastic because it delivers quality service and straightforward pricing over a very wide coverage area. EarthLink’s prices factor in all the fees you’ll pay on your bill, including costs that are usually included only in the fine print. It’s transparency like this—and a commitment to great customer service—that helped EarthLink earn first place for two years in a row in our annual customer satisfaction survey.

Other providers are also worth considering too—whether it’s cheap prices or wide availability, each has its own strengths that make it “best” for specific purposes.

This list is based on combined insights gained from customer feedback, speed data, independent customer satisfaction survey results.

Who has the cheapest internet?

Xfinity has the cheapest internet overall—and it’s a true bargain, with Xfinity offering 25 Mbps speeds for under $25 per month on its cheapest plan. Cox and Mediacom are also well known for budget internet options, while AT&T has an incredibly good deal on fiber internet that starts at $35 a month.

What is the fastest available internet in my area?

Google Fiber and Xfinity have the fastest available internet in most parts of the United States. Both providers have fiber internet plans that deliver mind-bending speeds of up to 2,000 Mbps. No other internet provider in the country can top these speeds.

Xfinity is also one of the country’s largest internet providers, with a network in 40 states that’s capable of serving 40% of the US population.

If you don’t have Google Fiber or Xfinity where you live, then the fastest internet available in your area will most likely come from EarthLink, which is available in 49 states to 71% of the US population. EarthLink offers both DSL and fiber internet, with plans that top out at 1,000 Mbps—which is incredibly fast and will do wonders for most internet users.

AT&T and Spectrum also have robust networks that each cover dozens of states. And both of these ISPs are also capable of delivering 1,000 Mbps speeds on certain plans. However, you can’t always get the top internet speeds where you live, so you’ll want to make sure to run a search to get a more specific list of which internet providers and plans are available in your area.

Types of nationwide internet service providers


A digital subscriber line (DSL) connection delivers internet over your home phone line. It’s usually the cheapest option you can get. But it has limited speeds, topping out at around 100 Mbps. Additionally, some DSL providers are now pivoting to focus on newer technologies like fiber. Still, it’s much faster than old-school dial-up.


  • Affordable package options
  • Widely available service


  • Limited upload and download speeds
  • Weaker connection when far away from an ISP’s central office


Cable internet uses the same coaxial cable lines that deliver cable television, making it easy to bundle with TV. It’s capable of fast speeds and is available in most neighborhoods, though you may experience area-wide slowdowns during peak hours.


  • Fast download speeds
  • Widely available


  • Limited upload speeds
  • Slower speeds during high-traffic times


Fiber-optic internet flashes light through glass fibers to relay digital information. Its superfast upload and download speeds are unprecedented because fiber enables an extremely efficient signal. Fiber is the best internet on the market today, but its availability remains limited because it’s so expensive to build fiber infrastructure.


  • Ultrafast download speeds
  • Phenomenal upload speeds


  • Limited availability
  • More expensive than other connection types


Satellite internet uses transmitters orbiting Earth to beam wireless signals to subscribers on the ground. It’s capable of decent speeds and is widely available, making it a great option for rural areas. The only downside is the long transmission distance means slower speeds and more lag. Also most satellite providers put strict limits on your data usage.

Next generation satellite providers—including Starlink, Project Kuiper, and OneWeb— will have lower orbits, which means lower latency and faster, fiber-like speeds, allowing them to compete more evenly with other ISPs.


  • Widely available, even in rural areas
  • Good customer service


  • Unavoidable lag
  • Data restrictions


5G internet uses cellular networks and fixed-wireless connections to give you fast speeds at a good price. These forms of internet technology are relatively new, so availability is limited, but they could offer an excellent alternative to fiber and cable as they grow in popularity. Most providers with 5G internet services give you a break on extra fees, too, including unlimited data and a router at no extra cost.


  • Fast speeds
  • Affordable prices


  • Extremely limited availability
  • Unpredictable speeds


Like 5G, 4G LTE internet uses a fixed-wireless connection over a cellular network to give you decent speeds. It works over 4G networks, so it’s not as fast as 5G but more widely available. Some 4G providers specifically serve rural users and digital nomads, providing internet over travel routers that you can install anywhere. Prices can be steep, but you can also find affordable deals with unlimited data and breaks on extra costs.


  • Unlimited data options
  • Availability in rural areas


  • High prices
  • Unpredictable speeds

Fixed wireless

Fixed wireless operates over radio waves, sending a wireless signal directly to an antenna set up in your home. This relatively obscure technology is mostly popular in rural areas where you have few other options. It’s also the backbone of 5G home internet.


  • Fast download speeds
  • Cutting-edge technology


  • Limited availability
  • Unfamiliar technology

FAQ about internet providers

Why do you need my zip code before I can see the available internet services?

We need your zip code to show you all the best internet providers in your area. The first step to choosing the best internet provider is knowing all your options. We have a database of more than 1,200 internet service providers (ISPs) across the United States, so using our tool is the best way to quickly find the best possible internet provider for you.

Asking for this information upfront may seem intrusive or frustrating, but we have a good reason for asking: we want to help you find the internet provider you want.

To keep our database of ISPs simple, we define each area by its zip code. So, to show you the internet service packages you can actually buy, we need to know which internet service providers (ISPs) offer service in your area. The simplest way to establish that information is to match you with the internet providers in your zip code.

In most areas, you will find one major cable company, one major telephone company, and one or two satellite companies providing internet service. Although this is typical, the number of ISPs available to you and the exact companies providing internet service will vary greatly based on your location.

What happens after I enter my zip code?

Entering your zip code narrows down the list of ISPs to only the internet provider options in your area. After you have that list, you can search through the packages each provider offers and choose one that suits your needs. But before you make your final decision about which package to order, you may need to know more about how much internet speed your household needs.

Most providers will have several speed tiers from which to choose, so the first thing to consider is how much internet speed you’ll need. You can quickly determine your speed needs by using our handy tool.

How Much Speed Tool

You also might want to compare how much speed you need to the speed you already have. You can check the internet speed you’re currently getting with this tool.
