Internet Service in San Jose, California
With Silicon Valley and the Tech Museum of Innovation settled within its borders, San Jose is one of the largest cities in the Bay Area devoted to advanced technology and innovation. This has led to the construction of internet infrastructure that delivers reliable high-speed internet to most neighborhoods in San Jose. Of the many providers available, AT&T Internet and Xfinity are most accessible in Japantown and Willow Glen — both known for their culture, food, and history.
Fastest Internet Providers in San Jose, California
The internet has gotten a whole lot faster since the old days of dial-up connections. The difference, of course, is that we don’t have to rely on dial-up anymore: These days, internet connections use different methods and often rely on other types of infrastructure. DSL, which still uses telephone lines, uses different frequencies than dial-up and allows for a faster connection that doesn’t disrupt phone call signals. Cable, which uses broadband cables like the ones we’re familiar with from cable TV services, can typically offer faster speeds than DSL. And fastest of all is fiber, which uses fiber-optic cables to deliver ultra-fast speeds.
It’s no surprise, then, that San Jose’s fastest internet provider is a fiber network provider. San Jose’s top internet speed is available from AT&T, which has a fiber-optic network that serves some (but not all) of the city. If you have access to AT&T’s top-of-the-line plan, you can get an incredible 5 Gbps in advertised download speeds.
If you don’t have access, there’s no need to panic. AT&T’s other plans include options with gigabit speeds, and Xfinity offers a 1.2 Gbps plan in San Jose.
