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

According to our annual internet customer satisfaction survey, EarthLink and AT&T are the best ISPs in San Antonio. They rank first and second overall among 12 national internet providers. EarthLink customers are particularly enthusiastic about their internet services—it scored the highest in every category (speed, price, reliability, and customer service).

Suddenlink is rated seventh out of 12 overall but got fourth place for customer satisfaction with pricing.

So, how about the rest of San Antonio’s internet companies? It’s worth noting that our survey and other national rankings 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.

 

Fastest internet service providers in San Antonio

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.

San Antonio residential internet coverage

AT&T offers DSL and fiber internet service in the San Antonio metro area, from the downtown area and all the way out to Cibolo, Helotes, and South San Antonio.

We have Spectrum for this area. Internet speeds are descent. Customer Service is not the best. It's better to make a physical appearance if you need to fix an issue. My only complaint is that the internet goes offline constantly.

What horrible inconsistent service. Something as simple as a Friday night movie can't happen all due to lousy internet. I even bought the highest speed I could 150 a month and still lags.

The worst internet I’ve ever had I can stream anything without it having to stall and think, their service is terrible have had cables that were supposed to be put in the ground for over a year still crap the box is in my yard broken for three years. No service, no streaming without think every minute thinking, you call just someone that works there drawing a check that could careless about you. My recommendation spend a bit more and get a carrier that can actually stream Spectrum streams if you don’t mind it pauses every other minute
