How to choose the right internet in Dallas, TX

Nearly all Dallas-area residents will have the option of cable or DSL internet, while a little more than half will also have access to fiber optic internet. Your ZIP code and address will determine which internet types, providers and speeds are available.

To choose the best Dallas internet provider for you, determine:

  • What speed you need. This will be based on:
    • How many devices you connect simultaneously
    • What activities you will need the internet for, such as gaming or 4K streaming
  • Your budget

Currently, AT&T has the best value for 100 Mbps fiber optic internet without a data cap. But, if you live on the outskirts of Dallas, you may only have options for DSL, fixed wireless or satellite internet. Fortunately, Dallas has over half a dozen choices for those types of internet connections as well.
