What are internet service providers doing to help you during COVID-19?

Right now, the COVID-19 crisis adds an extra layer of complexity to moving or searching for new internet, TV or voice service.

Many internet service providers, including AT&T, Spectrum, Verizon and Xfinity, have taken the Keep Americans Connected pledge to protect against the spread of the virus while maintaining internet services to their current and future customers. 

The FCC pledge promises to:

  • Not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Waive any late fees that residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Open its Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them.

Some providers have extended their initial COVID-19 pledge through June 30. Other nationwide providers are also offering contactless or self-install.

Shop cheap internet providers near you

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

When shopping for cheap internet, also consider data caps, equipment fees and installation costs in addition to monthly internet service pricing. Some providers offer special internet deals, such as student discounts or the option to save on equipment costs by using your own modem and router.


What internet providers have no contracts?

If you’d rather avoid a long-term agreement with your internet provider, whether you’re concerned about future price hikes or your lease will be up before the contract expires, consider an internet provider that does not require a contract.

Other internet providers, such as AT&T, HughesNet, Mediacom and Optimum come with a service agreement for one or two years. 

For those intending to live in their residence for more than a year or two, committing to a service contract may not be an issue. Keep in mind, however, that many internet providers are likely to increase prices after an introductory period (typically 12 months of service). If you’re locked into a lengthy contract, you may have to choose between paying the higher price until the contract expires or cancelling and facing an early termination fee.

What types of internet 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-optic, cable, DSL and satellite internet connections offer different speeds, reliability and availability.

Each internet type presents specific advantages and potential disadvantages. Cable and fiber-optic internet service providers are likely to give you actual internet speeds closer to the plan’s advertised speeds. Plus, fiber-optic services are less vulnerable to slower speeds during peak usage times.

Fiber-optic 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-optic. Satellite internet is a great option for high-speed internet in rural areas.


Choosing an internet service provider

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.
  • Consider contract obligations – Signing a contract can be an issue if there are price increases during the length of your contract or fees for discontinuing or moving service before the contract is up.
