What is the best internet provider in Seattle?

The best internet providers in Seattle are CenturyLink, Xfinity, and Astound Broadband.

Overall, Xfinity is the fastest internet provider in Seattle with speeds up to 1,200 Mbps. Xfinity offers a good variety of other internet plans in the Seattle area at lower speeds if you don’t need a gigabit (1,000 Mbps) connection.

CenturyLink is a fiber internet provider that’s widely available in the Seattle area with speeds up to 940 Mbps, but it also offers slower DSL service if fiber isn’t in your area. 

Astound Broadband is a cable internet provider available in northern Seattle—an area that’s often out of reach for CenturyLink. Astound Broadband offers speeds up to 2,000 Mbps. Like Xfinity and CenturyLink, Astound Broadband is also widely available across the Seattle area.

If you live in areas around Seattle where landlines don’t reach, Viasat and Hughesnet are your best options. Satellite internet generally delivers slower speeds than cable, or fiber (100 Mbps or less), but it’s an internet provider that’s available virtually everywhere in Seattle.

“I have enjoyed the high speed internet from Wave Broadband because of the speed! The service has been fine. The only problem that I have experienced is the high cost!”

–J. Andree

Xfinity

“I have Xfinity and for all of my experiences with them and their services, I have nothing but good things to say.”

–J. Harkins

“I have CenturyLink and they are really great if you never need anything fixed. The internet is good, the prices are cheap, and for the most part there aren’t any problems. That being said, their customer service is total garbage.”

David P | 07-09-2024

Foolishly agreed to switch phone service from Verizon to Xfinity while dealing with home internet problems. Was not told by agent about outages in our area. Spent day after day for week never to actually get service. When attempted switch back to Verizon that requires a transfer Pin. Standard way is to get text message. My phone would not get texts. In store agent gave phone number to call. Had to go back next night where agent was on hold for over hour to finally give transfer pin only works for 4 hours. Not enough time contact Verizon since got number at 6:15 pm. Went back into store again two days later. Incorrect IMEI number was in my Xfinity account. When attempted to get set back up with Verizon - Xfinity has days of where not able to just switch back to other provider. Now stuck where having trouble activating Verizon account again. Entire experience has been stressful and negative for now past week. Have talked to easily around 20 different agents or so and can not recommend this company if better options available.

STEPHEN C | 04-02-2023

This is absolutely the worst customer service in all of my 79 years. It takes forever to get through to a live human and she usually has a foreign accent. My land lines have no dial tone. I called t lest 5 times to schedule repairs and was promised specific times. No one has showed up in 10 days nor has anyone contacted me. I have finally given up and will switch to Comcast/X- finity who answered the phone right away and scheduled me very soon.

Service is very inconsistent. Very good, then nothing at all. Price keeps going up every year. Biggest problem: our internet went out multiple times over a 2 day period and Comcast Xfinity has successfully removed all phone links to customer service. It's robots only. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. No internet = no working from home. Good-bye, Xfinity.
