Best Internet Providers in Bethesda, MD

The top two internet providers in Bethesda are Xfinity and Verizon, both of which facilitate fiber connections. Fiber internet offers specific technological advantages that other networks can’t match. Fiber networks, for example, can send larger chunks of data farther than cable or DSL connections.

Here, Xfinity supplies some of the fastest download speeds around, as its fiber network is capable of symmetrical upload and download speeds up to 6 Gbps. Depending on your Xfinity plan, your internet can come with cable TV or home phone service too. Rates for these bundles start at $54.99 per month.

Verizon’s competing service, called Verizon Fios, reaches speeds up to 940 Mbps. Like Xfinity, Verizon offers home phone and TV bundles, which are available for $159.99 and up per month. In terms of coverage, Xfinity’s cable network is accessible in 90.8 percent of Bethesda, compared to Verizon’s 97.3 percent, making both of these options safe bets for the area’s residents.
