Find Internet Service in Your Area

Just enter your zip code in the search box below and we'll give you all your internet service providers.


Search

The main factor to consider when searching for internet service providers is simply your location. You're probably most familiar with the nationwide ISPs that have the resources to market aggressively, but many regional providers can deliver internet service just as efficiently - and sometimes at a lower price. And if you're in a rural area, you may be operating under the impression that satellite broadband is your only option, when wireless internet may be the faster choice.

Just enter your zip code in the search box above and we'll give you all your TV and Internet providers.

Compare

We have data from multiple government entities including: Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). Then we supplemented and fact-checked all government data with countless hours of research into the providers themselves.

Also, for our TV research, we used data from Nielson, Inc. and NetFlix, Inc.

Types of Internet Service Providers Nationwide

DSL

A Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) is a method of connecting to the internet through an existing telephone line. Faster and more reliable than dial-up, DSL has been the choice for most Americans ever since it gained traction in the late 1990's. Seeing as all that's needed is a telephone line, most households and businesses will have some form of DSL to choose from.

Pros

  • Available to most addresses
  • Highly reliable connection
  • Affordability

Cons

  • Reduced upload speeds
  • Slower than other lines

Cable

Using the same infrastructure as cable television, cable internet access has quickly grown in popularity among ISPs and consumers alike. Generally offering faster speeds than a DSL line, it's often the first choice when looking to use the internet for things such as streaming, gaming, or just visiting some of your favorite sites.

Pros

  • Increased download speeds
  • Widely available

Cons

  • Shared bandwidth
  • Reduced upload speeds

Fiber

With the fastest speeds available through fiber, it's the perfect choice for the modern user. Through fiber internet, fiber-optic lines carry the signal back and forth from your home or business at near instantaneous speeds. It's one of the newest technologies on the market and demand is growing faster and faster.

Pros

  • Lightning fast download speeds
  • Highest upload speeds

Cons

  • Higher cost
  • Lower Availability

Satellite

Really meant for homes or businesses without grounded lines available, satellite internet access can be found almost anywhere. Using a geostationary satellite to connect you with the wider world online, all that is needed is a clear line of site to the southern sky and you'll have no problem connecting to the web.

Pros

  • Available almost anywhere
  • Multiple plans available

Cons

  • Lag when gaming
  • VPN incompatible
  • Data restrictions

Fixed Wireless

Fixed wireless is a form of internet that uses directional radio antennas to connect to your home or business. Great for areas that don't have access to cable, DSL, or fiber, it allows you to have internet access without the often prohibitory price tag that getting those lines laid would cost.

Pros

  • Fast download speeds
  • No lines required

Cons

  • Weather affected
  • Antenna required
