Our methodology

Go behind the scenes with our Allconnect team.

So, what exactly is a methodology?

Put another way, a methodology is an approach to answering a question. At Allconnect, connecting you to the right providers and connected services for your home is a privilege. Our methodology helps us connect you to the right data and deliver trustworthy content.


Our Allconnect approach

We partner with over 30 internet, TV, streaming and wireless providers, but our work doesn’t stop there. That’s only the beginning. 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, up-to-date information.

We also utilize Reviews.com, a consumer advocate site that is owned and operated by an affiliate of Allconnect. But we are a wholly separate group and are not involved in the production of Reviews.com content and have no influence in their rankings.

Finally, in addition to the FCC, our writers also make use of some of the top data sources in their respective fields to help bolster our findings. These include the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) and J.D. Power. Here are just a few more industry-specific examples:

How do we 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.


Our opinions are ours

Since 1998, Allconnect’s goal has been to help you confidently compare providers and products of home services. We know you trust us to be accurate and unbiased. While our site doesn’t feature every provider or product on the market, our article recommendations are based on independent research and honest opinions from our editorial team. Our editorial team does not receive gifts or direct compensation from our partners.
