Which Internet Provider Offers the Fastest Speeds?

As a consumer comparing internet service providers, it isn't always easy to distinguish what are facts and what is just marketing.

Each provider has a vested interest in convincing you that they offer the fastest service.

At BroadbandNow, this isn't our goal. Our goal is to help you make informed decisions about the internet providers in your area.

To help you do that, we set out to find the most objective way to authoritatively answer the question of: "Which internet provider offers the fastest speeds in the US?" On this page, you see those results.

Average Speeds vs Fastest Speeds

When we started digging into the data to power this page, our initial plan was to create a simple average of all of the speedtests from a provider.

Quickly, we found that simple averages lead to misleading results due to different plan speeds, different home network setups, and the number of speed tests evaluated.

To help control for all of these variables while minimizing the impact of outliers we instead display the download speed from the speed test found in the 90th percentile of all of the tests for a provider in a given month.

This allows us to confidently say that 10% of the speedtests we saw were faster than this speed while 90% of them were slower than this speed.

We believe this is the most objective and accurate way to calculate and compare different plans, network conditions, and speedtest across thousands of providers and millions of speed tests.
