Best Internet Providers in Ankeny, IA

The best internet providers in Ankeny are CenturyLink and Mediacom. CenturyLink is among the leading internet options because it operates a fiber network and covers essentially the entire city. CenturyLink customers experience symmetrical upload and download speeds up to 940 Mbps, which — since fiber can send larger amounts of data longer distances than DSL or cable — is perfect for heavy gamers, streamers, or households with multiple devices.

CenturyLink has availability in 57.5 percent of Ankeny, but if by some chance you can’t get coverage or you simply don’t need the benefits of fiber networks, then you should definitely consider Mediacom. This cable internet vendor similarly has accessibility in almost all of the area, and its connection reaches speeds in the gigabits. In addition, Mediacom offers bundles galore if you need home phone or cable TV service.
