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. Of the bigger, national ISPs in the city, EarthLink ranked the highest in our 2020 customer satisfaction survey. AT&T and Spectrum also scored in the top half of the 15 ISPs included in the survey.

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.

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.

Sarah | 06-17-2019

We were going to have to pay for a tech to come out and move the main cable box and router to the room he was told by myself to install them in the first place. Internet goes down often, my husband works from home (doing it work) and loses about $600 a day when the internet goes out. He called to have a tech come out and fix it because in our eyes it’s an emergency ($600 is a lot of money) they say they can’t do anything but offered us a $15 credit for every day the internet was out. A technician missed the scheduled appointment time when our internet was out for 2 days and no one bothered to call to let us know. We had to call and were placed on hold for an hour and 25 minutes. The call center employees are rude and condescending, they talk over you and when we ask to speak to a supervisor they tell us that the supervisors can’t do anything more then they are already doing for us.
