Where you live is a key factor in determining what types of internet and what internet speeds will be available at your home. Your four main options for residential high-speed internet plans are typically cable internet, DSL, fiber-optic or satellite. Some areas also have fixed wireless internet available.
Available in select markets: The fastest internet speeds come with fiber-optic internet from providers such as AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink, and can reach up to 1,000 Mbps or higher. These speeds are only available in select markets for now.
Suburban areas: Cable internet and DSL internet providers are the best choice for most internet users in the U.S. who need high-speed internet plans. If you live in a city or surrounding suburban area, cable and DSL are likely to both be available internet options near you.
Rural areas: If you live in a rural area where cable or DSL options are not widely available, satellite internet service may be your best option for high-speed internet. Even in remote areas, satellite internet can deliver download speeds of up to 25 Mbps to your home.
Fixed wireless is another type of internet that uses broadcast towers to bring the internet to homes. Fixed wireless is more often found in rural areas, so check to see if it’s an option in your area if you are looking for more internet choices.
