Best Internet Providers in San Antonio, TX

The best internet service provider in San Antonio is whatever fiber internet provider you can get — meaning either AT&T Fiber or Google Fiber; that choice depends on which neighborhood you live in. Fiber internet is the most reliable and powerful option for home internet; both of these companies have great reputations for customer satisfaction, to boot.

If you can’t get fiber in your area, you’ll be on the lookout for a cable provider. In most cases, we recommend that you steer clear of DSL, fixed wireless, and 5G home internet; San Antonio has enough great fiber and cable options to allow you to avoid these. One popular cable provider in San Antonio is Astound Broadband Powered by Grande (formerly known as just “Grande”). Astound is well-regarded for its fair pricing and solid speeds, and it makes a good alternative to the city’s other major cable provider: Spectrum.

Speaking of Spectrum, it’s no slouch in the speed department: Its top plans can reach speeds of up to 1 Gbps. Spectrum offers internet-only plans that start at $49.99 per month and bundle deals that start at $49.99 per month.

Fastest Internet Providers in San Antonio, TX

The fastest internet provider in San Antonio is AT&T Internet, and the best speed you’re going to get is up to 5 Gbps. With that said, there are a few ways to get yourself at least 1 Gbps in download speed here in town.

We consider the speeds offered by AT&T Fiber (5 Gbps), Google Fiber (8 Gbps), Astound Broadband Powered by Grande (1.2 Gbps) and Spectrum (1 Gbps) to all be impressive. However, you should keep in mind that fiber internet connections like those offered by AT&T Fiber and Google Fiber are generally better at handling peak usage and offering faster upload speeds.

Internet Availability in San Antonio, TX

When it comes to the internet, San Antonio residents are pretty blessed: Broadband connections are widely available in the city. San Antonio has 12 total internet providers, two of which offer fiber connections. Plus, some San Antonio residents may even be able to choose between more than one cable provider, which is a rarity in most U.S. cities.

Of course, the providers that you can choose from depend on where in San Antonio you live. So which providers cover which neighborhoods?

Let’s start with the cable providers. Like most cities, San Antonio has one dominant cable network. In San Antonio’s case, that network is owned by Spectrum, which covers a whopping 93.0% of the city.

But, unlike most other U.S. cities, San Antonio also has another cable provider. In some neighborhoods of the city, Astound Broadband Powered by Grande competes with Spectrum. You’re most likely to find Grande in the heart of San Antonio: Its coverage area is most complete in the neighborhoods just to the north and south of Downtown San Antonio — including Midtown and areas along the San Antonio River in Southtown. Astound also covers neighboring Alamo Heights, as well as some neighborhoods in the further reaches of San Antonio; it’s worth double-checking to see if you have access no matter where you live.

When it comes to fiber internet, San Antonio residents will be looking for one of two providers: Google Fiber or AT&T Fiber. Google Fiber’s service area is concentrated in the western and northern parts of San Antonio — look for it in neighborhoods like Great Northwest, Northwest Crossing, Babcock North, and Churchill Estates. Google Fiber also covers the enclave of Leon Valley.

In other parts of the city, you’re not likely to be able to sign up for Google Fiber. Luckily, AT&T Fiber has a very extensive fiber network in San Antonio, which offers 59.8% availability in the city. AT&T Fiber covers most of the same areas as Google Fiber does; plus, it does a much better job than Google of covering South San Antonio, the South Side, Harlandale, Highlands, and the East Side.
