Arizona Internet Coverage & Availability in 2022

Arizona Internet Facts in 2022

  • Arizona currently ranks 37th among states in BroadbandNow’s annual rankings of internet coverage, speed and availability.

  • This means that roughly one in ten Arizona residents are not able to purchase an internet plan of at least 25Mbps download and 3Mbps upload.

  • This means that nearly eight in ten residents are not able to purchase broadband at a price of $60/month or less (excluding promotions and government programs).

  • This means that eight in ten residents are unable to purchase a fiber internet plan.

  • The U.S. has more than 2,874 internet service providers, with most covering very small areas. It is worth searching by zip code to see who is available in your town.

At BroadbandNow, we advocate for a definition of broadband internet to be at least 100Mbps, as opposed to the FCC definition of 25Mbps, which would be considered slow for many internet-intensive activities.

In Arizona, 88% of people have access to 100Mbps broadband, ranking 36th among all states.
