The “best” Houston internet provider for your home depends on what you’re looking for. AT&T offers the greatest fiber optic availability and some of the lowest pricing on gigabit service. Xfinity boasts the fastest internet speeds in Houston with max download speeds of 2,000 Mbps.
In areas where Xfinity is not available, Suddenlink is likely to be your best option for cable internet.
