Overall best internet and phone bundle plans of 2021
The best internet and phone bundles offer a combination of fair prices, fast speeds and generous data caps.The three providers that offer the best value for internet and phone bundles are CenturyLink, Verizon and Xfinity. Verizon generally has the best prices on phone and internet bundles, but if you live in a larger household with heavy internet users, CenturyLink’s higher fiber optic speeds might be best.
CenturyLink: Up to 940 Mbps and home phone for $85/mo.
Verizon: 200 Mbps and home phone for $59.99/mo.
Xfinity: 100 Mbps and home phone for $59.99/mo.
Is it cheaper to bundle internet and phone?
Bundling home phone and internet service can save you some money on your monthly bill, but as you can see in the table above, most providers don’t offer any discount on these bundles. Some providers even require you to bundle phone plans with internet or other home services in order to purchase home phone service at all. If you’re looking for more significant savings, we recommend bundling TV and internet.
Our approach: We determine the best phone and internet providers for you
When narrowing down our list of the top internet providers, we sought to highlight providers that are available to many people in different areas. Using the most recent FCC data, we identified the top internet providers available to at least 5% of U.S. residents.
From there, we leveraged our own in-house technology to further accumulate availability, speed and pricing details and for each provider. Specific plan, pricing and service details were sourced directly from the providers, both via our professional relationships with them and their official websites.
We also sought inspiration from Reviews.com, who is owned and operated by an affiliate of Allconnect, Inc. However, Allconnect, Inc. is not involved in or responsible for the production of Reviews.com content, including rankings cited on this page.
Equipped with an accurate, up-to-date portfolio of each provider, we then carefully examined each provider’s attributes to identify a provider’s exclusive advantage over the rest. The result is our list of the best internet providers of 2020.Learn more about our research

Low-cost internet and phone bundles
Phone and internet providers give customers extra incentives to bundle by adding additional services at a discounted price or, in some cases, for only a couple dollars more. Here’s a look at phone and internet bundles that may be available in your area.
Frontier Internet & Phone
Frontier uses both DSL and fiber optic connections in the U.S., so depending on where you live, you may be able to get speeds up 1,000 Mbps — some of the fastest in the country. That said, Frontier’s fiber availability is pretty limited, and its DSL speeds max out at 12 Mbps. If Frontier’s fiber optic plans (called Frontier Vantage) aren’t an option in your area, you might want to look into other providers before opting for a slower DSL connection.
Great fiber optic internet and phone bundle deals – Plans start at $74.99/mo. for speeds up to 50 Mbps
No data caps – Regardless of your plan, there are no data caps with Frontier’s internet plans
Unlimited calling – Enjoy unlimited calling within the U.S., Canada and Mexico
Slow DSL speeds – DSL phone and internet plans start at $74.99/mo. for up to 12 Mbps
Limited fiber optic availability – Although Frontier’s fiber optic plans are a great deal, they aren’t currently available in many areas
Low customer satisfaction – With a score of 55/100, Frontier has one of the lowest customer satisfaction ratings out of all ISPs
Internet Ultra + Voice
Spectrum’s internet and home phone bundles offer some of the best value around. For just $62.98/mo., you can get 200 Mbps of download speeds and a home phone line. However, you also have the option of 400 Mbps or 1,000 Mbps internet speeds.
Amazing value – Phone and internet bundles start at $62.98/mo. for 200 Mbps
Great availability – Spectrum has some of the best availability in the country, with plans available in 41 states
Gig speeds available – Spectrum offers internet plans as fast as 1,000/35 (download/upload) Mbps
Must bundle for home phone – Home phone service only available as part of bundle
Price jumps – Although Spectrum offers a great promotional value, expect your bill to increase by as much as $30/mo. after the first year
Below average customer satisfaction – Spectrum scored a 63/100 on the American Customer Satisfaction Index. This score is below the average score for internet service providers (65/100)
Verizon 200 Mbps and Digital Voice
Like Frontier, Verizon’s internet plans are split into two types: fiber optic and DSL. Its fiber optic plans offer some of the best value of any provider — 200 Mbps of internet speed plus unlimited nationwide calling for just $59.99/mo. But if you can only get Verizon’s DSL service, called Verizon High Speed Internet, speeds will be limited to 15 Mbps at best and you’ll have to pay $15/mo. more than fiber.
Best starting prices – For $59.99/mo., you get 200 Mbps and a home phone plan. This is the most affordable internet-phone bundle deal available.
Unlimited nationwide calling – Verizon’s home phone plan offers 30 calling features unlimited nationwide calling
No data caps – Verizon doesn’t impose any data caps with its plans
Expensive DSL service – In areas with Verizon Fios isn’t available, Verizon offers a DSL service that maxes out at 15 Mbps. You can get a DSL-home phone plan for $74.99/mo.
Limited fiber optic – Verizon Fios is currently only available in nine states
Expert tip: Go for a slightly more expensive plan for faster speeds
Although you might see some internet and phone bundles for under $50/mo., most households require far greater than 9-10 Mbps they offer. Spectrum’s 200 Mbps internet and home phone plan for $62.98/mo. or Verizon’s 200 Mbps and home phone plan for $59.99/mo. will save you the most money in the long-run.
*Pricing per month plus taxes for length of contract. Additional fees and terms may apply. Pricing varies by location and availability. All prices subject to change at any time. May or may not be available based on service address. As of 05/27/21.

Internet and phone bundle FAQs
Some providers, like AT&T and Xfinity for example, offer incentives for bundling wireless service with internet or TV. However, most mobile providers keep wireless plans separate from other services they offer.
Traditional landline phone service uses a copper phone line network. Digital phone service transmits a phone signal using an internet connection and typically delivers a more clear signal than traditional phone service.
Unless you have dial-up internet, you’ll be able to use your home phone and internet service without interruption. A dial-up internet connection cannot be used when a landline phone is also in use since both services use the same copper infrastructure in your home.
