How to find the best internet provider in your area

Enter your zip code above to see a comparison of the best internet providers available near you.

What is the fastest available internet in my area?

The fastest accessible internet service in your area depends on where you live. Fiber internet from providers like Google Fiber, CenturyLink, AT&T, Frontier, and Verizon is the fastest and best internet connection if it’s available in your area.

More fiber plans are now available at speeds up to 10,000 Mbps, although most commonly top out at 1,000 Mbps, which is more than enough speed for the vast majority of households. Fiber internet also supports symmetrical upload and download speeds—great for remote workers who need to upload large files to the corporate server, Twitch livestreamers, or households where multiple people are on video conferences at the same time.

Cable internet from providers like Xfinity, Sparklight, and Spectrum is the most widespread fast connection type. Cable internet plans reach up to 1,200 Mbps, but you may see speeds limited to only 200–500 Mbps in some areas. However, cable internet speeds are expected to reach 10,000 Mbps in the coming years.

DSL is essentially a step up from dial-up, offering internet speeds up to 140 Mbps. It’s the ideal connection if you need only the baseline broadband speed (and if the price is cheap), or if fiber and cable internet aren’t available where you live.

Satellite internet can reach speeds up to 100 Mbps, but it’s expensive and offers low data caps. But satellite internet might be your fastest option if you live in a rural area.

Enter your zip code below to find the best internet providers in your area.

Types of nationwide internet service providers


A digital subscriber line (DSL) connection delivers internet over your home phone line, but it won’t tie it up like dial-up. Its maximum speed is just 140 Mbps—faster than dial-up but slower than most cable and fiber plans.


  • More reliable than wireless internet
  • Widely available service


  • Limited upload and download speeds
  • Less reliable than fiber and cable


Cable internet uses the same coaxial cable lines that deliver cable television, making it easy to bundle with TV. It’s capable of delivering speeds up to 1,200 Mbps and is available in most neighborhoods.


  • Fast download speeds
  • Widely available


  • Limited upload speeds
  • Less reliable than fiber


Fiber internet sends LED or laser pulses through glass fibers that translate into data. Fiber is the best internet on the market today, capable of speeds up to 10,000 Mbps But its availability remains limited because fiber-to-the-home requires a new infrastructure in your neighborhood versus using existing cable and telephone lines.


  • Ultrafast download speeds
  • Phenomenal upload speeds


  • Limited availability
  • Not easily self-installed


Satellite internet uses transmitters orbiting Earth to beam internet to subscriber dishes 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, resulting in slower speeds and more lag.


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


  • Unavoidable lag
  • Data restrictions

5G Home Internet

5G internet uses cellular networks and fixed wireless connections to give you fast speeds at a good price. It’s relatively new, so availability is limited for now. Most providers with 5G internet services give you a break on extra fees, including unlimited data and a router at no extra cost.


  • Fast speeds
  • Affordable prices


  • Extremely limited availability
  • Unpredictable speeds

4G LTE Home Internet

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.


  • Great alternative to satellite
  • Cutting-edge technology


  • Limited availability
  • Unfamiliar technology

FAQ about internet providers

What internet providers are available in my area?

Entering your zip code to access our database of over 1,600 internet providers will give you the best idea of which providers are available where you live and give you the most accurate results.


From there, you can easily compare providers’ internet availability, speeds, features, customer reviews, expert ratings, and more.

Generally, cable internet providers don’t overlap in coverage, no matter where you look. DSL internet is widely available—even in rural areas—but it doesn’t offer much speed. Fiber internet is mainly available in densely populated areas. Satellite internet is available everywhere, but we don’t recommend it unless it’s your only option.

How do I compare internet providers to find the best plan for me?

Enter your zip code above to see a comparison of the best internet providers available near you. Fiber providers are usually the best internet providers if they’re available in your area—if not, cable internet is a great alternative. Once you know what all your options are, look for fiber and cable internet providers first.

What are the different types of internet services available, such as fiber, cable, fixed wireless, and DSL?

Fiber is the best internet connection you can get, offering symmetrical download and upload speeds and a reliable connection.  Fiber internet isn’t as available in a lot of areas, but if you can get a fiber plan we recommend it.

Cable internet uses the same coaxial cables used for cable TV, making it more widely available than fiber internet. Cable internet is capable of fast download speeds of up to 1,200 Mbps, and it’s very reliable.

If fiber or cable internet isn’t available in your area, fixed-wireless (like T-mobile’s 5G home internet) is your next best option.

Fixed-wireless brings internet service to your home using the same wireless technologies used by mobile devices. This internet type is split into 5G and 4G providers. We recommend you choose a 5G provider (like T-mobile or Verizon) as the service will be faster and more reliable than 4G fixed wireless internet service.

DSL internet is the slowest type of wired internet connection. It may occasionally reach speeds of up to 140 Mbps, but in many areas DSL may struggle to reach broadband speeds of 25 Mbps. DSL is faster and more reliable than satellite internet, but much slower than most cable and fiber internet plans. It’s widely available and there’s a good chance DSL internet is available in your neighborhood.

How can I test my internet speed?

Try our speed test to find out how fast your internet is by clicking below. This test will measure your download and upload speeds, as well as other information like latency. You can compare your results to the maximum speed advertised with your internet plan.

You can also download our speed test app to run a test anywhere on your phone.

What are the download and upload speeds offered by different internet providers?

Download and upload speeds depend on which plan you choose. Download speeds can range between 75 to 5,000Mbps. A fiber plan will give you symmetrical speeds, while a cable plan offers higher download speeds over upload speeds.

Enter your zip code to narrow down which providers are in your area and then you can check out what plans are offered.


How much does high-speed internet cost?

In general, internet plans range in price from $20 to over $100 a month. The price you pay depends on what’s available in your area and on a range of other factors,  including the internet plans and type of connection available to you. To find out what’s available in your area enter your zip code in the box above.

What are the data caps for different internet providers?

You can expect a monthly data cap of around 1 TB from internet providers that have them. Xfinity offers a little more data with 1.2 TB per month, while some providers don’t have them at all, like with Google Fiber, Spectrum, and CenturyLink.


See a full list of which internet providers have data caps and which don’t here.

Can I get internet service without a contract?

Yes, many internet providers offer month to month plans that don’t require you to sign a year long contract.

Providers like AT&T, Verizon, Spectrum, T-Mobile all offer plans without year long contracts and you can cancel anytime.

What equipment is needed for high-speed internet, and is it included in the service?

The type of internet you choose will determine what equipment you need. Most internet connections require a router and cable internet will require a cable modem while DSL internet uses a DSL modem.


Many providers include the equipment needed or charge a rental fee. If you choose to buy your own you’ll want to make sure the equipment is compatible with your internet provider. Every internet provider should have a list of compatible modems and modem router combos listed on its website.

If you want to learn more, check out our in-depth information on modems.

Do internet providers offer bundles with TV or phone services?

Yes, most internet providers offer options to bundle internet with TV and phone services. Typically, providers offer incentives like discounts on your monthly bill when you bundle your internet with one or both of these. Veriozn, AT&T, Xfinity, and T-Mobile all offer bundling options.

What is the process for setting up new internet service?

To set up new internet service you’ll need to sign up with an internet service provider and choose a plan that best suits your internet needs.

Many internet providers offer a self-installation option or you can have a professional technician install internet service for you. You’ll also need the right equipment like a compatible modem and router.

These resources below will help guide you through choosing an internet provider and how to set up an internet connection.

What is customer service like for different internet providers?

To find out what customers think of their internet providers service you can read our annual Customer Satisfaction Survey where we ask thousands of internet customers about their service to find out which providers are performing best. Customers rank their providers in categories like customer service, price, speed, and reliability.

How long does it take for a technician to install internet service?

It can take around 2 to 4 hours for a professional technician to install internet service. Professional installation also requires scheduling an appointment time, and usually there is an install fee. While it requires some more planning and investment, a professional installation is the most reliable way to get your internet services installed on time.

Are there any promotions or discounts available for new customers?

Yes, internet providers frequently offer discounts and bargains to lower the cost of your monthly bill. You can check out these internet deals for a comprehensive look at what internet providers are offering.

How do I troubleshoot my internet connection if it is slow or not working?

If your internet connection is slow or stopped working you can try restarting your modem and router. If your connection needs more than a reboot, then there could be other issues to consider. The reason you could be experiencing slower speeds could also be because of issues on your provider’s end, like your provider’s network is congested or because of your internet connection type.

Which internet provider has the best internet service?

AT&T, Verizon, and Google Fiber offer the best internet service if you want the fastest residential speeds. All three have plans reaching up to 2,000 Mbps in symmetrical speeds—AT&T goes even higher!

In terms of customer service, EarthLink has them all beat. It outranked all other providers in our annual customer satisfaction survey.
