Best Internet Providers in Erie, PA

The top Internet providers in Erie are Spectrum® and VNET Fiber. Spectrum is the better option, in large part due to its extensive availability in Erie — the vendor has a whopping 99.7 percent coverage rate that reaches almost every neighborhood. Spectrum uses reliable cable connections to facilitate speeds up to 1 Gbps, which are fast enough for any modern household.

Spectrum’s stand-alone Internet plans cost between $49.99 and $89.99 per month. Appealing bundles start at $89.98 per month.

Meanwhile, VNET Fiber is a small but powerful provider in the area. As its name suggests, VNET operates a fiber network for fast symmetrical speeds measuring in the gigabits. However, one important thing to note about this particular ISP is that it has very limited availability in Erie. Those with more accessibility, however, only supply DSL, wireless, or satellite connections, which are much slower.
