Why do ISPs only offer internet service in select areas?
Operating costs and the expense of bringing new technologies, such as fiber-optic cables, to new locations limit the areas where internet service providers operate. It’s for this reason that available ISPs vary by address, even those within the same ZIP code.
Cable internet service providers, including Cox, Spectrum and Xfinity, offer coverage to around 89% of the U.S. But, only around 6% of U.S. residents have access to more than one cable internet service provider. To keep operating costs low cable internet providers tend to avoid extending coverage where another cable provider already offers service.
Along with a single cable internet provider option, many U.S. residents have the option of DSL internet service (88% coverage) and/or fiber-optic internet (33% coverage). DSL service is available nearly anywhere with access to telephone lines, but fiber-optic internet availability is mostly limited to metro areas. Like cable ISPs, DSL and fiber-optic ISPs tend to operate in select states or ZIP codes where they are the sole provider.

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-optic 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 choices 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 the best option for high-speed internet near you. Even in remote, rural areas, satellite internet can deliver download speeds of up to 25 Mbps to your home.
