About Our Internet Data

It’s our mission to give you all the useful data we can on Internet and TV service providers so you can make your own decision. Please note that DecisionData does have a paid financial relationship with some of the providers listed. This does not impact which providers are shown, as we show all providers we have data for.

 

We recommend starting with the providers at the top of the list, as these are the providers that are more likely to have coverage at your home or business.

 

The majority of our data comes from the FCC. We’ve also gathered real-world usage data and combined it. As with any large database, there are plenty of errors. We’ve tried to fix provider errors, but there are probably some we’ve missed. Let us know if you see any mistakes! This data has been particularly hard to gather and compile, so we hope it’s useful. If you find it helpful in finding Internet providers near you, please share it on Facebook or Twitter.

Satellite TV and Internet Providers

Satellite TV is generally a good choice for customer service and channel selection. DIRECTV and DISH are ranked above traditional wired TV providers in almost every survey and study done. If you're not sure which provider is best, make sure to read our DISH vs. DIRECTV comparison.

Satellite Internet (like HughesNet) should be a last resort. Latency is often very high, making it impossible to live stream video or play games. For rural customers with no wired internet service, however, HughesNet is likely the best option.

All plans Include

  • Internet bundles with AT&T, Frontier, Centurylink and Xfinity
  • Two-year TV price guarantee

Mobile (Cell) Internet Providers

Mobile/wireless data service is often marketed in a way that makes it hard to compare. We've included access charges and unlimited talk/text on cell phone plans as well as autopay/paper-free discounts to show what you'll actually pay for the listed data. Monthly payments will be higher if you choose a subsidized phone.

Consider mobile internet as your primary access if: (1) no wired providers are available; (2) your data usage is light (few videos); and, (3) your computer or main device can connect to 4G or connect wirelessly using your phone as a hot spot. 4G data is often faster and much lower in latency than satellite internet. You can connect using a hotspot, but it's generally a better idea to buy a cellular modem.
