Best Internet Providers in Vancouver, WA

The best internet service providers in Vancouver, Washington are CenturyLink and Xfinity. We recommend CenturyLink’s fiber plans because of their high speeds, incredible reliability, and very transparent pricing. CenturyLink is a stalwart out West and has a strong reputation in Vancouver as well as across the river in Portland. According to J.D. Power, CenturyLink’s customer satisfaction ratings are topped by only a handful of competitors — and regional rival Xfinity is not among them.

Xfinity’s cable network is also a strong option that merits a close look from consumers — especially if you don’t have access to fiber in your neighborhood. Xfinity’s bundle deals make it a particularly good choice for customers who want cable TV.

Fastest Internet Providers in Vancouver, WA

Xfinity and CenturyLink are the fastest internet providers in Vancouver, Washington. Xfinity is the fastest of all, with advertised speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps. Real-life speeds may not always reach that advertised rate, but anything within striking distance of 1 Gbps should be more than fast enough for the vast majority of internet users, including those who stream video and play online games.

CenturyLink’s top advertised speed is 940 Mbps. While not quite as fast as Xfinity, this near-gigabit speed may feel even faster on CenturyLink’s fiber network. Fiber networks handle high-traffic times better than cable networks do, and fiber networks can also offer symmetrical speeds. (This means that upload speeds can be as fast as download speeds, which can be helpful for web hosting and other upload-intensive activities.)
