Internet Service in Austin, Texas
Austin is one of Texas’s premier cities. Home to the University of Texas flagship campus, Austin is a hub for learning and innovation in the Lone Star State. So, it’s no surprise Austin has internet infrastructure to match, with speeds up to 1 Gbps or higher from providers like AT&T and SpectrumⓇ. Residents in districts such as Barton Creek, West Oak Hill, and Mckinney have their choice of up to five or more internet providers, depending on their location.
Fastest Internet Providers in Austin, Texas
The fastest internet provider in Austin is AT&T Fiber, available to a vast portion of the city. AT&T Fiber internet plans come in a variety of speeds and price points to accommodate subscriber needs and budgets, but its top download speeds max out at an impressive 5 Gbps. This is more than enough, and then some, for even the busiest multi-user households. For pockets of Austin not covered by AT&T Fiber, cable internet from SpectrumⓇ is an excellent alternative. Download speeds with Spectrum top out at 1 Gbps, which, while not 5 Gbps, is much more than most households need.
An alternative to fiber and cable when neither is available is T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. Speeds from T-Mobile vary between 33 and 182 Mbps — remarkable compared to legacy wireless connection methods like fixed wireless and satellite internet.
