What is the best internet provider in San Antonio?

San Antonians are lucky to live in a city with excellent infrastructure. Don’t be fooled by the leisurely cafe scene along the River Walk or the historic cobblestone streets of La Villita. San Antonio is scenic—and it has soul—but that doesn’t mean we don’t like our internet served fast and fiery.

Most San Antonians have access to superfast internet speeds from AT&T and Spectrum. Fiber internet and fixed wireless are also available.

The best internet service for San Antonio residents is an internet plan that gives you enough speed without charging you for extra bandwidth you don’t need. For some families, a download speed of 25 Mbps is ample, while others need 400 Mbps or more to keep everyone peacefully streaming and gaming through the long, hot summer. Use our How Much Speed Do I Need? Tool to get a recommended speed package for your home.

Highest-rated internet providers in San Antonio

With so many internet providers in the city, it can be hard to find the best internet company in San Antonio. J.D. Power ranks AT&T above Spectrum, although both of these providers offer similar speeds (AT&T has speeds up to 1,000 Mbps and Spectrum has speeds up to 940 Mbps).

Our 2018 ISP satisfaction survey gives similar results, with AT&T beating Spectrum. Why is AT&T better? AT&T offers slightly faster plans, but that’s only part of the story. Spectrum’s internet service tuckers out early when it comes to uploading speeds. The upload speed on a Spectrum 940 Mbps plan is only 35 Mbps! On the other hand, AT&T’s 1,000 Mbps fiber internet plan delivers an even 1,000 Mbps for upload and download speed. Sweet.

So, how about the rest of San Antonio’s internet companies? It’s worth noting that both these surveys don’t include many of San Antonio’s fiber providers, including Google Fiber or Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative. They also don’t include any of the city’s smaller fixed-wireless providers. These providers are offered to a more limited part of the city geographically, but they often deliver a higher value if they’re available where you live.

San Antonio might be the most historic city in Texas—with five beautiful missions and a lot of culture to boot—but it’s also pretty darn tech-savvy. Forbes ranked San Antonio fifth in the nation for fastest internet speed. The fastest internet in San Antonio comes from fiber providers, although cable internet is also a great option.

Those living closer to the city center are more likely to have fiber internet options with gigabit plans (with download speeds up to 1,000 Mbps). San Antonio’s north, northwest, and central downtown areas have access to fiber internet service from Google Fiber, AT&T, and Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative. These three companies offer the fastest internet in San Antonio.

If you can’t get fiber internet where you live, you can probably get Spectrum. Charter Spectrum offers cable internet with download speeds that equal fiber (although Spectrum’s upload speeds are slower than fiber).
