Tips to choose your best internet service provider

Internet providers in your area likely offer a variety of internet speeds. For light use, such as sending emails and browsing the internet, 1-10 Mbps is fine.

Compare internet pricing
Is the cheapest internet the best deal? Not always. With internet, the best deal is typically the plan that gives you fastest speed for the lowest price each month. If two internet plans have similar pricing, compare the speeds you get with each plan. The one with faster speeds is likely the better deal.

Some internet internet options in your area may include a monthly data “allowance.” Exceeding your data limit can result in slower speeds or added fees.

Internet speeds vary by type of internet, location and 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 can deliver internet download speeds of up to 25 Mbps to your home.

What internet can I get at my address?

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. Search your address with Allconnect to find out which internet options are available in your area.
What is Mbps?
Mbps (megabits per second) is used to measure the capacity and speed of a data transfer. The higher the Mbps, the faster your internet. Depending on your location, you could get Internet speeds ranging from up to 3 Mbps to 1 Gbps.You will notice that most internet providers advertise “up to” a certain amount of Mbps. This indicates a maximum speed/bandwidth the network is capable of, but may not be the maximum speeds you always experience.
What internet speeds do I need?
For basic internet use, like emailing and occasionally streaming a show, lower speeds of 10-25 Mbps will suit your needs. For heavier activity, like streaming in HD and gaming online, you’ll want speeds 50-100 Mbps for the best experience. Also, if you want to connect multiple devices at once, speeds of 100 Mbps and higher are recommended. Use Allconnect to see what speeds are available in your area.
Can I get fiber internet at my address?
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. Search your address to see if fiber internet is available in your area.
What kind of internet do I need for streaming?
Streaming providers like Netflix recommend a high-speed internet connection of 3-4 Mbps per stream for standard-definition video and 5+ Mbps per stream for high-definition (HD) video. While these speeds may connect you to streaming services, faster speeds are recommended, especially if you plan to connect multiple devices. Enter your address to find internet providers in your area that offer internet plans with speeds fast enough for streaming.
What internet speeds do I need for gaming?
Internet speeds of 10 Mbps or higher are sufficient for online gaming. For the best experience and consistent speeds, it is recommended that you connect your gaming device using an Ethernet cable. A quality connection for gaming also requires low latency, or “ping,” which is the delay before data transfers. Cable, fiber and DSL offer lower latency numbers than satellite internet. With satellite internet, data has to travel to and from the satellite, resulting in higher latency numbers, which is why satellite internet is not recommended for real-time online gaming. Check your latency with our internet speed test.
