We’ve built a database of over 1,200 Wi-Fi providers across the United States.

Enter your zip code to find the best Wi-Fi providers in your area.

Which Wi-Fi providers have the cheapest internet?

 

Mediacom and WOW! Internet have incredibly affordable plans for 100Mbps. Optimum isn’t too shabby either, with a 300Mbps plan for under $50 per month, and AT&T offers something similar using fiber.

Frontier and Spectrum have 500Mbps plans for a great low price, but Spectrum’s cable internet doesn’t have symmetrical speeds like its fiber, plus Spectrum’s price increases by $25 after 12 months—Frontier’s price doesn’t.

See our guide on the best cheap internet plans for more details.

We’ve researched the best Wi-Fi providers for you

Finding the best Wi-Fi provider in your area is easy when you use HighSpeedInternet.com. We’ve done the hard work for you by compiling a database of over 1,200 Wi-Fi providers and their plans so you can quickly compare options. Just enter your zip code to see exactly which Wi-Fi providers and plans are available near you.

After that, you can compare each available provider by internet type, speed, customer reviews, and more. If you want to dig into our research further, check out our annual customer satisfaction survey to see which Wi-Fi providers come out on top in terms of overall satisfaction, speed, reliability, and more.

But keep in mind that actual service availability depends on your street address, which we don’t collect. AT&T fiber may be available in your zip code but not on your street, for example.

The best Wi-Fi providers depend on where you live. Wi-Fi providers supply us with a list of zip codes where they’re available, so when you use our tool, you won’t see every single national or regional Wi-Fi provider in the results.

In most cases, you’ll see a handful of fiber, cable, DSL, fixed wireless, and satellite internet providers. The number depends on where you live, as one zip code may list seven different Wi-Fi providers while another will only list five.

Overall, fiber internet is the fastest and most reliable service you can get, with speeds topping out at 10,000Mbps, but its availability is limited. Cable internet is more available than fiber and your next-best bet in speed and reliability, followed by fixed wireless and DSL.

Fiber internet is the fastest residential connection you can get—at least for now—with speeds up to 10,000Mbps. Fiber’s design uses light rather than electricity to transmit data, making it the most reliable internet connection you can get. Plus, fiber offers equal upload and download speeds, but its availability is very limited—you’re lucky if it’s in your area.

If fiber internet isn’t available to you, cable internet is your next best Wi-Fi option.

Modern cable internet uses a mixture of fiber and cable TV lines, so it’s widely available and easy to find. The main drawback with cable is that download speeds currently don’t go beyond 2,000Mbps due to the infrastructure’s design and how cable internet providers distribute bandwidth across their networks. Upload speeds are typically just a fraction of a plan’s maximum download speed, but that will change in the coming years as cable internet providers adopt 10G Platform technology.

If fiber or cable isn’t in your area, your next best landline Wi-Fi option is DSL internet.

 

Best DSL Wi-Fi providers

DSL internet uses existing telephone lines and is the slowest of the three, delivering speeds up to 140Mbps. It’s a good alternative if you don’t need the speed of fiber and cable—it may even be your only landline connection, especially in rural areas. However, DSL plans are typically more expensive than comparable fiber and cable internet plans.

If you don’t have a landline internet connection in your area, wireless internet is your only solution.

A fixed wireless internet connection is your best bet if you live within range of a cell tower—it supports 4G LTE and 5G cellular connections. If you’re not within range, satellite internet from Viasat or Hughesnet is the only Wi-Fi connection you can get.

How to find the best Wi-Fi provider in your area

Wi-Fi provider availability depends on where you live. Wi-Fi providers supply us with the zip codes where they offer landline and wireless internet service. Simply enter your zip code into our tool to see which ones are available to you.

After that, you must provide your street address directly to the Wi-Fi provider you choose to see if internet service is actually available at your home or business. We do not ask for your street address—only your zip code.

The typical zip code search result lists several Wi-Fi providers offering different types of connections. The most common are cable and DSL, while fiber internet is relatively new and less abundant.

National internet providers

Verizon Home Internet is your top-rated fiber internet provider, ranking second out of 15 internet providers in our latest customer satisfaction survey. It ranks first in reliability and within the top three spots in every other category. AT&T and Spectrum are great fiber choices if they’re available to you.

Xfinity is your highest-rated cable internet provider in the nation. It ranks third for overall satisfaction and first for speed. Cox Communications and Spectrum are also solid choices if you’re ready to upgrade from DSL internet.

Regional internet providers

Technically, we now rank T-Mobile as a national provider, and it takes the top spot for overall satisfaction in our survey. However, Google Fiber has the best scores to date, surpassing all national and regional internet providers in our survey. Get Google Fiber over all the others in the area if you can get it.

Enter your zip code to discover what internet types and speeds you can get where you live. We say go with fiber internet if you can get it, but cable and fixed wireless internet are your best alternatives if fiber internet isn’t available to you.

The fastest available Wi-Fi service depends on where you live.

Fiber is the fastest Wi-Fi connection you can get, with residential internet speeds up to 10,000Mbps. Fiber also provides symmetrical speeds, meaning your upload and download speeds are nearly identical.

Some internet providers already offer fiber plans that reach up to 10,000Mbps, including Advanced Stream, Brigham, and Ziply Fiber.

Cable internet can hit multi-gig speeds, too. Xfinity and Cox have plans with a 2,000Mbps cap, although their downloads aren’t symmetrical like fiber.

How does your home network compare to your plan’s max speed?

To find out, run our speed test from a wired connection and compare the results to your plan’s advertised speed. If you’re on Wi-Fi, move next to the router (if you can) to get the best results from our test. We also have mobile apps you can use if you’d rather run a speed test from a smartphone or tablet.

To find out, install our mobile app, run our speed test next to the router or gateway to get the best results, and then check your numbers against your plan’s advertised speed. For the most accurate speed readings, run the test from a wired connection instead.

What are the Wi-Fi provider ratings and reviews?

We conduct an annual customer satisfaction survey asking questions about each Wi-Fi provider. We publish the results of five categories: overall satisfaction, speed, price, reliability, and customer support.

T-Mobile takes the top spot for overall customer satisfaction on a national level in our latest survey—Google Fiber does the same as a regional internet provider.

AT&T, Verizon Home Internet , Spectrum, and Xfinity generally stay in the top half across all categories, so you can’t go wrong with either one of these providers.

You can also read reviews through our provider pages. For instance, there are 734 customer reviews on our AT&T provider page and 760 reviews on our Spectrum provider page. For more information about a specific provider, click on the provider’s name in the List of Wi-Fi Providers section above.

    In a nutshell, nearly every residential internet type uses radio waves to carry data, whether it’s across copper wires or through the air. The only exception is fiber internet, which relies on light pulses beamed through glass instead. We will always suggest fiber over any other internet type due to its overall design and efficiency.
