Best Internet Providers in Atlanta, GA

For most users in Atlanta, we recommend AT&T Fiber as the best internet service option. Several providers in Atlanta offer excellent speeds, and AT&T Fiber is one of them — its fastest plan can reach 5 Gbps. Since AT&T Fiber is a fiber internet provider, those speeds mean more: On fiber connections, upload speeds are just as fast as download speeds (in internet lingo, we call that “symmetrical speeds”). On top of that, our BroadbandNow.com data shows that AT&T Fiber enjoys excellent rates of customer satisfaction.

Another fiber internet option worth considering is Google Fiber. Google’s fast-growing fiber internet service is very popular, and it can reach speeds of up to 8 Gbps. That’s not the fastest in town, but it’s more than enough for most users.

If you don’t have access to fiber internet, your best bet in Atlanta is the cable provider Xfinity. Xfinity’s speeds vary, but its top available speed in the region is a stunning 1 Gbps. Don’t discount cable’s ability to deliver broadband speeds.

Fastest Internet Providers in Atlanta, GA

There are several very fast internet service companies in Atlanta. The fastest is AT&T Internet, which offers a top speed of up to 10 Gbps with its most elite plan.

Not all speeds, however, are created equal. If you need fast upload speeds (most useful for things like videoconferencing, web hosting, and online gaming), then fiber’s symmetrical speeds are more meaningful than cable’s download-focused speeds. Remember that your Wi-Fi router could bottleneck your speed, so talk to your ISP to make sure you have the proper equipment to take advantage of the plan you’re paying for.

Internet Availability in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta’s internet service provider landscape includes a few big players. The most omnipresent provider in the city is the cable provider Xfinity, which is available virtually everywhere. With the exception of a few odd spots downtown and near Georgia Tech, you can expect to have access to Xfinity internet plans and bundles no matter where in Atlanta you live.

Figuring out whether you have access to a fiber internet provider is a little trickier. AT&T is widely available in Atlanta, but it serves some areas with its IPBB connection and others with fiber internet.

AT&T Fiber’s weakest area is downtown Atlanta and areas nearby. Around Georgia Tech, Five Points, Sweet Auburn, and Mechanicsville, you’re unlikely to be able to sign up for AT&T Fiber.

AT&T Fiber is a lot more widely available in farther-flung parts of the city. Up in Buckhead and Chastain Park, out in Collier Heights and Adamsville, or down in South River Gardens, you’re a lot more likely to be able to sign up for AT&T Fiber.

The area’s other fiber provider, Google Fiber, has a relatively small footprint that is mostly concentrated north and east of downtown Atlanta. Look for Google Fiber in the Old Fourth Ward, Virginia Highland, Lenox Park, and Mayfair.

Of course, you should always double-check to see if fiber internet is available in your area. There are exceptions to the general patterns described here.
