Best Internet Providers in Louisville, KY

Louisville’s best internet provider is AT&T Fiber. As the name suggests, AT&T Fiber is AT&T’s fiber-optic internet service. We recommend fiber internet for most users because it is faster and more consistent than cable or DSL connections.

If fiber plans aren’t available in your area, consider Louisville’s cable internet provider, Spectrum. While cable isn’t usually as fast as fiber (particularly when it comes to upload speeds), Spectrum’s top available download speed of up to 1 Gbps is plenty fast enough for most people’s home Wi-Fi needs.

AT&T Internet, the other (non-fiber) offering from AT&T, uses an IPBB connection type. IPBB uses multiple connections, including some DSL, to create its network. We generally recommend you look at AT&T Fiber, rather than AT&T Internet. If the fiber is available in your area of Louisville, go with that.

Fastest Internet Providers in Louisville, KY

The fastest home internet provider in Louisville is AT&T Internet, which offers plans with speeds of up to 5 Gbps.

It never hurts to have faster internet, but you should consider your speed needs as you shop. Large households will really enjoy having internet that can reach 1 Gbps. Once you’re into speeds higher than that, you may not see a huge difference.

Internet Availability in Louisville, KY

Broadband internet is widely available in Louisville, but don’t expect to have a huge number of providers to choose from. Your main options are Spectrum and AT&T. Spectrum is the area’s cable provider, and it’s available virtually everywhere. AT&T also has a huge footprint in Louisville, but it doesn’t serve all areas with the same technologies. Your access to the connection type that we recommend — fiber internet, which AT&T sells under its “AT&T Fiber” brand — will depend on where you are in Louisville.

So where in Louisville does AT&T offer fiber service? AT&T Fiber is most widely available in neighborhoods to the south and east of Louisville. Places like Greenwood, Parwood, and Prairie Village are well served by AT&T Fiber, so are places like Crescent Hill, Deer Park, and Highview — plus enclaves like Indian Hills. If you’re closer to Audubon Park or Churchill Downs than you are to Old Louisville, you’re probably in a good spot for fiber internet.

Where fiber access isn’t quite as good is downtown and near the bend of the Ohio River, in places like Old Louisville and Portland. In those areas, you may want to consider a Spectrum bundle more seriously.
