Internet Access in Tempe, Arizona

Coverage data shows two main broadband service choices inside Tempe: coaxial cable (87.11% coverage) and DSL (89.41% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet access is delivered by traditional cable TV providers using coaxial copper TV wires mounted on telephone poles. DSL is sent via twisted copper phone lines. The vast majority of Tempe neighborhoods and street addresses can access both coaxial cable and DSL from competing telecom companies.

The broadband access information on this page comes via provider coverage reports, and is using privatized data sources to create more granular results than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Address availability data isn't always available. Information about speed and pricing of individual broadband plans is generated by our research and analysis division, who collect thousands of plans each year.

CenturyLink is a common alternative to the primary providers, serving Tempe with a top speed of 140 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only option for Internet for residents of Tempe. fixed wireless providers like Phoenix Internet can deliver 15 Mbps using direct wireless links.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Tempe

Data collected by our market research team suggests that many of the common ISPs in the area use data caps for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since consumers see them as a strategy to stop video streaming. Providers maintain they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the problem is streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Tempe

Slow

Been waiting for CenturyLink's fiber optics in my area for over 5 years and the fastest speed they offer me is 20Mbps. Painfully slow but reliable I guess.

Per Data Used Rates are Very High.

Coverage and speed in Sierra Vista AZ. are good, But limited data per month unless you buy more at very high rates is a deal breaker, with more and more sites streaming video even if you don't want to see them you can go through 10GB very quickly.
