Is High Speed Internet Available at my Address?

In 2010, the FCC published a National Broadband Plan that called for internet connections with 100 Mbps download speeds in at least 100 million homes in the United States by 2020. While we're still not quite up to those speeds on a national level, wired internet services (DSL, cable and fiber) and wireless internet (satellite, mobile wireless and fixed wireless internet) have brought some form of high speed to most every corner of the nation.

Though the cost and quality of service may vary depending on location and the number of ISP's in the area, internet service with speeds of 25 Mbps or greater is available at virtually all addresses in the U.S.

Wired Internet

Traditional telephone companies and TV service providers are the main internet service providers in most areas with wired broadband internet. They provide service through copper phone lines or tv service lines. In many areas, especially rural areas, copper-line infrastructure restricts the download speeds that can be offered to consumers by DSL or cable providers. Still, maximum speeds on older networks can be as high as 200 Mbps for cable and about 50 Mbps for DSL. Most of these ISPs are in the process of upgrading their networks to use faster fiber optic connections. Currently, the top ISPs offering fiber internet service are AT&T, CenturyLink, ClearWave, Frontier, Google Fiber, Metronet Holdings, Optimum, Quantum Fiber and Verizon

Wireless Internet

Satellite Internet

Satellite internet service should be available anywhere as long as the user has a clear view of the southern sky, but in some areas, where satellite internet connection rates are already at capacity, service may be unavailable. Where available, satellite internet speeds can be as high as 30 Mbps. Satellite service providers with the fastest internet speeds and highest network capacity include HughesNet, Starlink and ViaSat.

Fixed and Mobile Wireless Internet

Fixed wireless internet is another alternative for those living in rural areas with limited options for wired connections. This type of internet service uses wireless technologies to provide a connection to your home. It does not suffer from the high latency associated with some satellite services, but it still requires a clear line of site to the wireless provider's network.

Data plans from wireless providers can also offers high speeds. Upgraded 4GLTE plans can provide speeds of 30 Mbps or greater in wireless coverage areas. As wireless networks improve and 5G services roll-out to larger areas, new home internet options may become available. 5G services are already offered in many larger cities by wireless providers. Users are reporting download speeds of up to 200 Mbps on 5G networks with capable devices. This should only improve as network capacity grows and ISPs optimize their networks. In the end, it may be that wireless providers are the first to bring 100 Mbps+ speeds to American households on a nationwide level. Top wireless providers include companies like AT&T, Boost Mobile, Nextlink, Rise Broadband, T-Mobile US, TDS Telecom, UScellular and Verizon.

When shopping for high speed internet be aware that with residential internet plans in the United States, the upload speed is typically a small fraction of the advertised download. A typical plan with 200 Mbps download might only have a 35 Mbps upload. Many internet providers will set monthly data caps on plans or require contracts in order to get advertised pricing. Early termination fees may apply for cancelled contracts, though competing provider may pay an early termination fee in order to earn your business. Preferential or introductory pricing is typically available for new residential customers with bundled services consisting of TV plans, internet service and phone lines.
