About BroadbandNow's Team
Who We Are and What We're Building
BroadbandNow is the best place to find and compare local internet providers, and we have the most comprehensive dataset of internet plans, pricing, and availability. Our data comes from the FCC and is supplemented by data provided to us directly by ISPs. We also verify plans and pricing of all 2,000+ ISPs as often as once per month.
We’re proud to publish independent research on broadband in America, recognized and cited by The New York Times, Washington Post, Ars Technica, The New Yorker, and numerous other publications. If you’d like to be connected to a broadband expert, please reach out to us.
What else can you do at BroadbandNow? If you’re new to the site, we recommend testing your internet speed, exploring our national broadband map, or comparing internet providers in Chicago or wherever you live!
