Get a deal on internet services in your area
What do you consider the best internet deal to be? Is it the cheapest internet plan in your area? Or the internet plan with the fastest speeds for the lowest price? Whatever you’re looking for in a home internet service, here are a few tips for getting the best deal.
- Shop multiple internet providers. All internet service providers are not the same. Compare internet options in your area and look for special promotional offers and discounts.
- Bundle services together. Most internet service providers also offer TV, home phone and home security as well, and typically offer services at reduced rates when you bundle two or more together.
- Switch internet providers. Introductory rates for new customers are usually the cheapest rates you’ll find for internet. Be sure to read the fine print, though, to be aware of if and when the introductory price will go up.
- Use your own Wi-Fi equipment. It’s not really an internet “deal,” but using your own router or modem could save you on your monthly bill.

Compare the best internet speeds in my area
Internet speeds vary by type of internet, location and ISP provider. The fastest internet speeds come with fiber internet from providers such as AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink, and can reach up to 1,000 Mbps or higher. Unfortunately, these speeds are only available in select markets for now. That means cable internet and DSL internet providers are the best choice for most internet users in the U.S. who need high-speed internet plans.
If you live in a rural area where cable or DSL options are not widely available, satellite internet service may be your best option for high-speed internet. Even in remote, rural areas, satellite internet can deliver download speeds of up to 25 Mbps to your home.

Average internet costs can range from around $30 to $50 for a broadband connection. Pricing will vary widely based on location, connection type, provider and speed. In addition to the monthly cost, the price for internet in your area may include equipment rentals, hidden fees for Wi-Fi and added charges for exceeding your data limits.
Cable, from providers such as XFINITY, Spectrum and Cox, is likely available in your area. DSL is another commonly available internet service, from providers including AT&T, Verizon and Frontier. Fiber technology is available primarily in select metro areas and include providers such as CenturyLink and AT&T. Rural areas will likely have the fewest internet options and may only be eligible for satellite internet providers such as HughesNet.
Providers including AT&T, CenturyLink, Verizon and Frontier offer fiber internet in select areas. Though multiple internet providers offer fiber internet, the service is not yet as widely available as cable and other types of internet. You may have access to fiber internet if you live in certain major cities. However, as more people demand the high speeds fiber optic internet has to offer, it will become increasingly available in more markets.
If fiber-optic internet is available in your area, it’s a good choice for a number of reasons. Probably most impressive is the speed potential. Fiber-optic internet can deliver download and upload speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. Additionally, fiber-optic’s high bandwidth makes for consistent speeds, even during peak usage times.
Satellite providers, like HughesNet, make broadband internet available throughout all 50 states. A clear view of the southern sky for a dish to receive signal is often all you need for service. Satellite internet is ideal for residents of rural areas who may not have access to faster internet options from cable or fiber providers.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defines a broadband connection as one with download speeds of 25 Mbps or higher and upload speeds of 3 Mbps or higher. These speeds are perfect for basic internet use, streaming shows and gaming online. Faster speeds like 100 Mbps or higher are ideal for connecting 5 or more devices and heavy streaming in HD or 4K video quality.
Streaming providers like Netflix recommend a high-speed internet connection of 3-4 Mbps per stream for standard-definition video, 5+ Mbps per stream for high-definition (HD) video and 25 Mbps for 4k streaming. While these speeds may connect your streaming devices, faster speeds of 20+ Mbps are recommended, especially if you plan to connect multiple devices.
The FCC recommends download speeds of 3-4 Mbps or higher for online gaming. You’ll also need low latency, or “ping,” preferably under 150 ms. Cable, fiber and DSL offer speeds and latency good for gaming. Satellite internet is not ideal for real-time online gaming because it has high latency compared to other internet services. Check your internet speeds and latency with our internet speed test.
