Internet Access in Mountain View, California

The Mountain View area has two widely available providers: Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat is primarily a Satellite provider, with speeds as high as 100 Mbps and coverage for virtually one hundred percent of the area. As for HughesNet, they market Satellite. They have availability for virtually one hundred percent of Mountain View and advertised downstream speeds up to a maximum of 25 Mbps.

The information on this page is sourced via FCC filings, and is using private data sources to create more accurate results than is available from government websites. Information about pricing of specific Internet plans is sourced by our research division, who collect tens of thousands of data points every year.

In terms of network technologies offered the area, the most prevalent physical wire Internet connection options are DSL and Cable, with 97.47% and 96.67% respectively. Cable is marketed by cable TV operators, who use their already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Mountain View-area customers of cable companies like Xfinity often select it because of the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Telephone providers are the main source for DSL connections, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends digital information over phone wires. DSL is outperformed by all major broadband options except dial-up.

EarthLink provides a common alternative to the primary providers. They offer 97 percent local availability and a top speed of 100 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't actually the only option for Internet in Mountain View. fixed wireless providers like Etheric Networks are able to reach 80 Mbps over direct wireless technology. There are also 14 companies in the city offering enterprise and business/smb technologies like T1 or custom fiber loops. Our search results include every provider with business plans on their site.

The average Mountain View household has 6-7 choices for residential Internet, which is above average. Mountain View ranks 25th of 1,152 communities in California in terms of broadband options. Areas the FCC would consider "underserved" are low, with only 1,000 stuck with a single choice for broadband access.

Data Caps on Mountain View Internet Plans

Internet providers have begun to add data limits to their home Internet plans lately. The trend is certainly true in the Mountain View market, with common Internet choices like Xfinity advertising capped plans. This doesn't matter for most customers, but may affect those that share the service or "power users" who upload a lot of HD or 4K content. An HD video stream on Netflix uses about three Gigabytes hourly. SD content consumes about 1GB/hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Mountain View

Amazing so far!

Fiber from Mvlink was available in our area for about a year but recently joined back in late 2019 when we figured out we could get better speeds and reliability. They've quickly fixed issues they had on their end which happens but it's very rare. Recently they increased the speeds permanently from 50/50 to 85/85 for the same price which is $60/monthly and the 100/100 to 250/250 for the same price of 70$ per month and added a plan for 10 dollars more for 500 up and down and lowered the price of 1GB plan. The price and speeds are amazing in this area compared to Satelite internet we used to have which was very slow and dealt with for years. I would recommend getting Mvlink if you can in your area.
