Las Vegas internet provider summary

Las Vegas internet at a glance

There are a variety of internet providers in the Las Vegas area, but not many of them offer fiber optic internet, which tends to offer the faster and most reliable service. There also aren’t any of the biggest providers, such as AT&T, Verizon or Xfinity available which is unusual for a larger city. Regardless, your home will likely have access to at least one provider that offers high-speed internet (at least 25 Mbps) for under $50/mo. 

The two biggest providers in Las Vegas are CenturyLink and Cox. If you are a student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, one of these two providers is likely available to you. 

CenturyLink is likely your best long-term option because it offers Price for Life plans, which means the price of internet will never go up. You can expect a CenturyLink plan between 20 and 100 Mbps if DSL is available in your area and plans up to 940 Mbps if CenturyLink’s fiber optic technology is serviceable in your home. 

Cox is a better option if CenturyLink fiber isn’t available to you and you need fast speeds. Cox offers a wide range of speeds with its most popular plans being the 50 Mbps, 150 Mbps and 500 Mbps plans. 

Other Las Vegas internet providers that may be available in your area include:

  • Rise Broadband – Rise Broadband is a fixed wireless service in Las Vegas. Although service is widely available throughout the city, its speeds in most locations are not particularly fast. You can expect a plan of 25 Mbps starting at $34.95/mo. and likely no options faster than that.
  • LV.net – A fixed wireless service, LV.net provides much of the free Wi-Fi access available in downtown Las Vegas. Residential and business internet service is also available throughout much of the city with speeds up to 1 Gbps in select areas. Pricing and speed details vary by location.
  • EarthLink – Another DSL and fiber optic provider in Las Vegas, EarthLink is available to much of the Las Vegas and North Las Vegas vicinity. Plans start at $49.95/mo.* and speeds up to 1,000 Mbps may be available depending on your address.
  • Valley Communications – Though primarily a fixed wireless service, Valley Communications also extends fiber optic service to select Las Vegas neighborhoods. Their fixed wireless service offers speeds up to 25 Mbps, while the fiber optic network can deliver speeds up to 1 Gbps.
  • HughesNet – As a satellite internet provider, HughesNet is available throughout much of Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. However, with max download speeds of 25 Mbps, two-year contracts and high latency, HughesNet may be one of the less appealing internet options in the city.
  • Viasat – Like HughesNet, Viasat is a satellite internet provider serving Las Vegas and surrounding areas. Viasat does offer slightly faster internet speeds in Las Vegas than HughesNet, but again, customers are likely to find local cable, DSL, fiber optic and fixed wireless to be faster, more cost-effective internet options.

The three largest internet providers in Las Vegas are CenturyLink, Cox and Rise Broadband. Here’s how each provider compares in terms of service areas, internet plan options, pricing and additional perks.

CenturyLink

  • Up to five internet plan options
  • Starting at $29.99/mo.*
  • 1 TB/mo. data cap
  • No contract required for most plans
  • Bundle internet, TV and phone services with Cox to save

Rise Broadband

Rise Broadband fixed wireless service is a great choice if you’re looking for an alternative to Las Vegas cable, DSL and fiber optic networks. Primarily available in western Las Vegas areas of Summerlin, Paradise and Enterprise, Rise Broadband offers speeds up to 50 Mbps and unlimited data options.

  • Up to four internet plan options
  • Starting at $34.95/mo.*
  • Data cap varies by plan, unlimited options available

The internet providers listed above cover most of Las Vegas and the surrounding areas, so there’s a good chance all three are available near you.



Fastest internet plans in Las Vegas

  • Rise Broadband – Up to 1,000 Mbps over a fixed wireless network
  • EarthLink – Up to 1,000 Mbps over a fiber optic network
  • LV.net – Up to 1,000 Mbps over a fixed wireless network
  • Valley Communications – Up to 1,000 Mbps over a fixed wireless network
  • Cox – Up to 940 Mbps over a cable network
  • CenturyLink Fiber – Up to 940 Mbps over a fiber optic network

The fastest internet services in Las Vegas are likely to come from providers using a fiber optic or cable network, but fixed wireless service is also capable of delivering gig speeds in select areas. When choosing a high-speed internet provider, keep in mind that fiber optic and fixed wireless services are likely to also come with faster upload speeds and better speed reliability than cable internet service.

Expert tip: Go with CenturyLink if possible

At $65/mo. for up to 940 Mbps and Price for Life guaranteed, CenturyLink is definitely the best option in Las Vegas for high-speed, reliable internet. However, if CenturyLink fiber isn’t available to you, then Earthlink is another good option for high-speed internet if its gig speed plans are available in your area. In many areas, however, Earthlink doesn’t even offer more than 30 Mbps.
