To the non-techie, selecting an internet provider can be a little intimidating. No one wants to spend hours on hold with customer service or battling a glitchy WiFi connection. The good news is you’ve come to the right place to get connected with the best provider for you!
Internet Service Providers like Xfinity, AT&T, and Spectrum serve select geographical areas. In determining which would be the best fit for you, some things you’ll want to consider include: the plans each provider offers, what type of connection you’re wanting to set up, how well your WiFi router performs, and the distance from the network to your home or office.
So you’re moving out-of-state and getting ready to cancel your current internet service and return your equipment, just to call and set up what is basically the same service at your new place. We understand this can feel like an unnecessary inconvenience in the midst of a stressful move, but don’t worry. We'll help you handle it.
Because Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, each have their own unique reach and footprint, it’s very likely you’ll need to change providers every time you move. Each provider’s service area is defined by satellite placement, as well as potentially obstructive geographic features like mountains and trees.
Before you can identify the best internet service for you, you’ll need to understand your needs and goals. Maybe you’re looking for a no-commitment contract or the fastest internet possible for a remote mountain home.
Once you know what is most important to you, you’re ready to consider the options. Your average person will want to pursue a provider that serves their area and offers download speeds to facilitate their internet activity, within a reasonable price range.
The mail man’s knocking, the dog’s barking, and you’re already facing the first big decision of the day – pants or no pants. Let’s face it. You don’t need anything else getting in the way of a successful work day at home. Whether you’re video conferencing with your boss or binge-streaming reality TV, you need your internet to be strong, fast, and reliable – like an Olympic athlete that’s also a really good friend. Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme!
But how fast is fast enough? Of course, this entirely depends on your family’s internet usage. Here are some rules of thumb to help you find the best fit for your household.
One or two devices surfing the web, social networking, and sending emails would do best with a download speed of up to 25 Mbps. Three to five devices streaming in 4K or playing online multiplayer games need between 50 and 100 Mbps of download speed. Finally, with five or more devices doing all those things plus sharing large files and live streaming video, you’ll want 150 to 200 Mbps.
Light flashes through glass fibers send digital messages with fiber-optic internet. It’s lightning fast download and upload speeds are unrivaled, but fiber is still not as commonly available.
A powerful wireless signal is sent directly to your home with fixed wireless. Providers like AT&T and Verizon have started implementing this superfast technology in some major cities, but fixed wireless is still not available to most.
Cable internet is easy to bundle with TV because it uses the same wires that deliver cable television. It’s available in most areas and can deliver fast speeds.
A digital subscriber line connection provides broadband speeds on a dependable connection and is typically less expensive than a newer technology like fiber.
Transmitters orbiting Earth send wireless signals to users on the ground with satellite internet. Due to satellite internet’s wide availability, it’s an excellent option for rural areas and is able to keep up with broadband speeds. The only drawback with this form of internet is a periodic lag.
