Our methodology

Go behind the scenes with our Allconnect team.

The Allconnect approach

We partner with over 30 internet and TV providers to keep the information on our site as up-to-date as possible. We also incorporate the latest data from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), plan and pricing details direct from local providers and insights from our writers and their research to inform our unique perspective. In addition, we have our own in-house technology to gather proprietary data to bolster the work of our writers and provide you with accurate information.

Our writers also make use of some of the top data sources in their respective fields to strengthen our editorial content. These include the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) and J.D. Power for information on customer satisfaction, the Pew Research Center, M-LAB NDT speed data and Speedtest Global Index for nationwide broadband trends and the Benton Institute and Brookings Institution for policy analysis.

How we find internet providers in your area

When you enter your address on an Allconnect page, it shows you every internet service provider that’s available in your area. We get this information in two ways: through FCC data and from providers directly.

Every provider in the country is required to fill out something called Form 477 twice a year. On this form, providers tell the FCC every census block in which they offer internet service. This data is then made available to the public, and we use it to keep our serviceability results as relevant as possible.

Some providers also give us the ZIP codes that they service directly, which we then use to manually update our results. Currently, we use both sources equally to supply our results.

How does Allconnect make money?

Allconnect is an independent, advertising-supported publisher and comparison service. Our partners may compensate us when you click links or sign up for services through our site. This compensation may impact how, where and in what order products appear. Additionally, we occasionally use Amazon affiliate links when recommending a product in our articles. We may receive compensation when you click a link and make a purchase. Your information is only shared with your selected providers during checkout. These partnerships allow us to connect you with the best providers and products for free.
