Holding the 36th largest community with 107,000 residents, College Station offers its residents a small number of internet providers relative to the size.

Residents living near Bryan and south of Texas A&M University have access to fiber optics internet through CenturyLink. The company advertises up to 100 Mbps in download speeds. However, they are scarce throughout the area of College Station.

Have been with Suddenlink since August. The first month or so it was okay, but recently 1)I can't stream netflix or hulu without it pausing to load every 45 seconds even when I'm the only one in the house with the fastest plan. 2) I can not log onto my account online even after resetting both my username AND password (I'm pretty tech savy so it's not me) 3) can not reach a representative and 4) the number for the college station provider apparently isn't an actually working number. The make no effort to reach out to their customers. Highly DO NOT recommend!
