Internet Access in Scottsdale, Arizona

Data here is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage reports. BroadbandNow also uses direct provider coverage reports to enhance the information, down to the census block or lit address level. Pricing and plan data shown here is hand-gathered through our research division. BroadbandNow has aggregated 440 broadband deals for Scottsdale. The averaged download speed data illustrated in the tool below is split between major providers Scottsdale residents have access to. The 315,403 speed test records we've aggregated as of 2022 give an estimate of real-world Internet speed in Scottsdale, but keep in mind speed tests in general are often low because some customers use speed test tools for checking WiFi problems.

In terms of availability, the average home in Scottsdale will find 4-5 companies at a given address, or exactly 4.29 providers per census block area. Only 13.88 percent of Scottsdale residents are limited to one option for broadband.

Viasat Internet has the largest coverage area for Scottsdale residents. The company is available to practically one hundred percent of Scottsdale addresses. HughesNet is also a common choice, with coverage in near one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest plan we've found for HughesNet in Scottsdale is 25 Mbps.

CenturyLink provides an second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet). They offer a maximum download speed of 140 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only choice for Internet service for residents of Scottsdale. For example, fixed wireless providers such as Triad Wireless can achieve 300 Mbps over wireless technology. There are 12 companies in the area with specialized enterprise and business/smb services like SD-WAN and MPLS. BroadbandNow includes all providers with explicit business services advertised online, but keep in mind that residential providers might have business packages as well.

Overall, Scottsdale's broadband situation follows a similar pattern to other Arizona towns and cities: strong access to bundled cable and DSL Internet service, but only two choices since most residences are stuck with a single option for either service. The cable/DSL pattern has a logical cause. Broadband providers have their roots as cable television and telephone corporations, and use these existing networks to deliver Internet bundles. Thanks to strong network competition around Scottsdale, the local average downstream speed is 16.10 percent ahead of the state average across all cities. Take a look at the speed test results below for information on how major local providers compare over time.

Scottsdale is the 4th most connected city in Arizona ahead of Tempe, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Mesa, and Fountain Hills.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 164,000 people in Maricopa County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber Availability: 31% of people living in Scottsdale have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 86% of Scottsdale residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Maricopa County, approximately 206,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Internet Access for Education in Scottsdale

Arizona State University-Skysong and Le Cordon Bleu College Of Culinary Arts-Scottsdale are the biggest universities in Scottsdale. For the 15,505 combined students living in the area, strong internet access is a must for obtaining online course materials and viewing research. Both universities have 3-4 internet providers at the average address within two miles of each campus. Arizona State University-Skysong students that live surrounding campus can expect to get download speeds of around 190.73 Mbps, according to speed test data in the Arizona State University-Skysong zip code. Speeds near Le Cordon Bleu College Of Culinary Arts-Scottsdale average out to 195.38 Mbps over 44,408 tests run in the past year. FCC and US Government reports regularly cite the need to better internet service availability for college and high school students. There is a strong correlation between increased high-speed broadband access and increased education/employment opportunities, especially in small cities and rural areas.

Data Cap Issues Around Scottsdale

Data collected by our research team shows that top ISPs in the area currently place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because customers view them as a tactic for limiting streaming services. Providers insist that they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Scottsdale

Troubleshoot

I had trouble on my phone for quite a while and had a few "techs" come out here to fix it. After about 6 different "techs" came out here, it took Robert Montijo and his helper/assistant/co-worker (didn't get his name) to notice that the wire that was supposed to be underground was just laying on top of the dirt. Robert checked the wire and found some "spongy" sections of the wire. After Robert and the other "tech" rewired all of the outside wire and put it safely against my house, the problem is solved. Robert also did a "follow up" with me to make sure the problem no longer existed. As he said, "I want to own the job I do and make sure it is done right". I appreciate what he has done and Cox is fortunate to have him in their employ. It's just a shame that it took so long for someone to actually go outside and check the wiring.

Best around!

Best internet around! Great service!

There is no better internet

Gigablast. What is not to like? I fix computers and help people with their electronics. There is nobody better. I've never had Cox swear at me on the phone like I have with others. My home internet speed is 984Mbps up and down. More expensive, yes, but it just plain works.
