Best Internet Providers in Nashville, TN

For internet shoppers in Nashville, we recommend focusing on one of the city’s two fiber internet providers: AT&T Fiber and Google Fiber. Fiber internet is the fastest and most reliable option for most users, and our data shows that both providers are very popular among their Nashville customers. AT&T Fiber offers speeds of up to 5 Gbps, while Google Fiber can reach speeds of up to 8 Gbps. With either provider, you’ll get more than enough speed for any of your online activities. AT&T Fiber’s plans start at $55 per month, while Google Fiber’s start at $70 per month.

Fiber coverage is limited in Nashville, however, so you may find yourself looking at other options. Of the non-fiber providers in the city, our top recommendation is Xfinity. We always recommend fiber internet over cable internet, but the top download speeds of up to 1 Gbps that you can get with Xfinity’s internet plans and bundles should be more than enough for most users. Xfinity’s prices start at $30 in Nashville, and the provider is available just about everywhere in town.

Fastest Internet Providers in Nashville, TN

Nashville is blessed with several very fast internet service providers, including two fiber internet providers. The fastest of all is AT&T Internet, which offers broadband speeds of up to 5 Gbps.

Fiber-optic internet connections are particularly impressive when it comes to speed. Fiber internet has symmetrical speeds, which means its upload speeds are just as fast as its download speeds. The area’s two fiber providers — AT&T Fiber and Google Fiber, which offer speeds of up to 5 Gbps and 8 Gbps, respectively — advertise that they offer symmetrical speeds.

Nashville’s cable internet speeds are nothing to sneeze at though. Download speed is the most important factor for most users, and Xfinity’s top download speed of up to 1 Gbps is fast enough for the typical home Wi-Fi setup.

Internet Availability in Nashville, TN

There are 10 internet service companies in Nashville, but there are three big broadband providers you should focus on. Those are the two fiber providers in the area — AT&T Fiber and Google Fiber — and the city’s one big cable provider, Xfinity.

Xfinity is available all over Nashville, covering 99.2% of the city. When it comes to figuring out what’s available in your neighborhood, you’re just going to be checking for fiber internet availability and then weighing any available fiber providers against Xfinity.

Where can you get fiber internet service in Nashville? For the most part, the best availability is in the residential areas ringing the city center.

AT&T serves a few blocks in the downtown area, including some areas near Bridgestone Arena. Generally speaking, however, fiber availability is patchier near Capitol Hill and in areas of Midtown — especially commercial areas — between downtown and Centennial park. There are some spots across the Cumberland River near Nissan Stadium that don’t have any fiber internet options.

Once you get outside of the most built-up areas of Nashville, you’ll start to see wide availability of fiber internet plans. Areas near Vanderbilt University are served by AT&T Fiber, as is the Hadley/Washington area. North Nashville is also AT&T Fiber territory, although Google Fiber serves part of that area as well.

In some neighborhoods, you may even find that you have a choice between the two fiber providers: Both AT&T Fiber and Google Fiber have great coverage in West Nashville. Neighborhoods south of Vanderbilt University are also likely to have access to both providers.

In South Nashville, you’re firmly in AT&T’s 70.5% percent of the city. In East Nashville — especially as you get out to the more residential parts of the area — you may once again find that both providers are available. Way up Kemper Heights and Madison, you’ll find the two fiber providers constantly competing.

All of that makes Nashville very well connected by national standards. No matter where in Nashville you live, you should have blazing fast internet and Wi-Fi.
