Fastest Internet Providers in Nashville
AT&T and Xfinity are the fastest providers for most Nashville residents. AT&T comes in two forms: AT&T Internet, a DSL service offering up to 100 Mbps download speeds, and AT&T Fiber, which offers the fastest plan, with download and upload speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps.
Xfinity has faster download speeds — up to 1,200 Mbps — but the upload speeds top out at 35 Mbps.
Google Fiber offers the fastest home internet plans in Nashville by far. The fastest Google Fiber plan provides 2,000 Mbps download speeds and 1,000 Mbps upload speeds. The service, however, is available only in scattered areas of East Nashville, near Vanderbilt University, and slightly south of West Nashville.
These are just advertised speeds, though, and actual speeds can vary greatly based on many factors, including location. Nationally, Google Fiber’s average download speed is 483 Mbps, while Xfinity’s reported average speed is 380 Mbps and AT&T’s is 510 Mbps.

Its prices start at $60 per month, while Xfinity starts at $79.99 per month for gigabit.
Comparing AT&T and Xfinity
If you want the best deal on internet-only plans, then AT&T Fiber is the best choice. If you want to bundle internet and TV service with one provider, then Xfinity is the better option.
Both Xfinity and AT&T use their own in-house phone services for bundling, but only Xfinity offers its own cable TV bundles. AT&T partners with DirecTV and HBO Max for its entertainment bundles. You can generally expect to pay at least $50 more per month for a bundled plan from Xfinity and at least $70 more per month with AT&T, depending on the package you choose.
