What types of internet speeds are available?

Know the basics of each internet type and choose the best one for your home.

The internet speeds you can get for your home depend mostly on what type of internet connections are available. Fiber, cable, DSL and satellite internet connections offer different speeds, reliability and availability. You’ll likely get the fastest speeds with cable and fiber connections. Fiber typically offers more speed consistency and reliability, but is less available than cable internet. DSL connections are ideal for cheap internet, but can’t deliver the speed potential of cable or fiber. Satellite internet is a great option for high-speed internet in rural areas.

Choosing an internet service provider (ISP)

Choosing the best ISP for your home is about more than just finding the lowest price. Here are a few tips for choosing the right internet service provider for your home:

  • Search for available internet provider options in your area. Enter your ZIP at the top of the page, or call our internet experts to find internet providers for your address.
  • Decide what internet speeds you need. Choose a plan that gives you the internet speeds you want, but not one that has you paying for speeds higher than you need.
  • Compare internet providers and pricing. Consider what each plan costs and what speeds you get for the price to determine the best internet deal.
  • Check out special offers. Promotional and bundle offers could save you on monthly costs, equipment fees, installation and more.
  • Know the hidden costs. Most ISPs have added fees for equipment, installation, Wi-Fi service, etc. Additionally, some internet providers have monthly data caps, and may charge you an added fee or slow your speeds if you go over the limit.

Start with a search of what’s available in your area, or give us a quick call to hear about internet offers for your address.
