Best Internet Providers in College Station, TX

Optimum and Frontier are the best choices for internet providers in College Station. Optimum is the top-rated option because it offers download speeds up to 940 Mbps. Its service area covers 50.9 percent of College Station. Residents can choose from Optimum’s bundle deals or opt for an internet-only plan, the most affordable of which starts at just $40 per month.

Frontier is another strong option in College Station. Frontier covers 24.6 percent of the city with a DSL network and also offers plans that use fiber optic technology. With Frontier fiber internet plans starting at $29.99 per month, Frontier is a solid choice if you just want an internet plan and nothing else.

Internet Availability in College Station, TX

College Station residents have a few wired internet providers to choose from. Most notable are Optimum, EarthLink, and Frontier — all of which serve different areas of the city. Let’s take a look at where exactly they have the most and least coverage.

Optimum covers 50.9% of College Station with its cable internet service. There are swaths of parks around the city center where service isn’t available, but, also, any college students and faculty attending Texas A&M University won’t have access. If you live farther south of the city center, such as the District on Luther or the Woodlands of College Station, you’re within Optimum’s coverage zone. The Saddlewood, Reveille Ranch, and Wave Z Islander Apartments along Wellborn Road are also covered by Optimum.

On the flip side of the internet, EarthLink offers fiber internet service to select areas of College Station. It has 21.5% coverage, so it’s not the most accessible, but it’s typically a faster option than cable. Frontier is another fiber internet provider in the city, with 21.5% availability. It has the strongest concentration in Castlegate and Pebble Creek.

If Frontier’s fiber internet service isn’t available or what you’re looking for, it also offers DSL service. Despite it being older technology, it’s still a viable option for those who want sufficient internet service. In College Station, it doesn’t cover Texas A&M University, Easterwood Airport, or the University Apartments – The Gardens, but it does have more coverage areas farther east of the city center such as The Gables and Sorority Row.
