Features You Want for Your Home Internet Plan

There are several factors Internet customers should consider when choosing the right WiFi service.

  • Fast download and upload speed: The right Internet speed for you depends on your needs. You require faster Internet for gaming and live streaming than you do for casual browsing and watching Netflix. The Internet providers we partner with offer download speeds from 100 megabits per second (Mbps) all the way up to 5 gigabits per second (Gbps).
  • Ability to bundle services: . Ability to bundle services: When it comes to picking a service provider, nothing helps you save money quite like an Internet bundle deal. Most providers will offer discounted pricing when you sign up for both Internet and TV packages. Some even offer further discounts for adding phone service, whether it’s for a mobile or home phone.
  • New customer deals: Aside from bundle deals, many service providers offer special rates for new customers who switch their service from a competitor. These types of deals could help you save hundreds of dollars up front.
  • Unlimited data: Some ISPs impose data caps on their Internet plans, limiting how much data can be transferred from your account each month. If you surpass your limit, your Internet service could be slowed until the next monthly cycle. Luckily, most of our providers offer unlimited data options, so you never have to worry about overages.
  • Affordable pricing: The most important factor for many households is cost. The price of Internet service varies greatly from provider to provider and plan to plan. It’s often dependent on the speed and data limits offered. According to Parks Associates, U.S. households pay an average of $64/month for Internet service. Some households are eligible for low-cost Internet access through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
