Monthly costs for internet service is likely one of the main things you’ll want to consider when choosing an internet provider and plan. If you’re looking for the cheapest internet service, there are a few high-speed internet providers with plans starting at $30 or less. Starting prices for the cheapest internet plans from other providers typically range from 30 to 50 dollars per month.

When shopping for cheap internet, also consider data caps, equipment fees and installation costs in addition to monthly internet service pricing. Also, keep in mind that the lowest starting price might offer you the cheapest monthly costs, but not necessarily the best value per Mbps.

According to the FCC, you don’t need a lot of speed for common activities such as browsing the web, streaming video or gaming online. Keep in mind, however, that their recommendations are the minimum recommended speeds. Another consideration should be the potential number of connected devices. Adding users and connected devices will require faster speeds.

  • Social media – 1 Mbps
  • File downloading – 10 Mbps

Streaming

  • Audio – Less than 1 Mbps
  • Standard definition video – 3 Mbps

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. FibercableDSL 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.

      • Check out special offers. Look for promotional pricing, equipment upgrades and other incentives internet providers are currently offering.

Internet provider frequently asked questions

According to the Federal Communications Commission, broadband internet is an internet connection with speeds starting at 25 Mbps. You can get these speeds with a DSL, cable, fiber-optic or satellite connection in most areas.

In addition to a modem, you need a Wi-Fi router to set up wireless internet in your home. Most broadband internet providers offer home Wi-Fi service and routers for purchase or rental, or include one for free with your service. Once it’s set up, check out our tips to boost your home Wi-Fi signal.

Most internet providers offer internet-only, or standalone internet, plans. Internet-only plans are ideal for cord-cutters or anyone who enjoys getting their entertainment over the internet. With many internet providers, bundling internet and TV together can make your internet cheaper than standalone internet, so be sure to compare all options.

Prices for internet-only plans will vary by provider and location. Depending on what internet options are available in your area, you may be able to find cheap internet-only plans ranging from $20 to $50 per month. For higher-tiered internet plans with faster speeds, monthly costs for internet could easily reach $100 or more. Shop internet pricing in your area with Allconnect.
