Find Every Internet Provider In Your Area
Easily Find All of The Providers in Your Zip Code
Whether you just need to know what providers are available in a zip code or you’re looking to find alternative ISPs, you’ve come to the right place.
In 2014 we started BroadbandNow.com with the goal of simplifying the process of finding the best internet provider for your needs. Today, our tiny team crunches billions of rows of data and spends thousands of hours collecting plans and prices to make your life easier.
Just enter your zip code above to search our entire database of providers, plans, consumer reviews, and more.
Every Provider Nationwide: BIG And Small
Unlike many of the other sites that offer an internet provider to zip code lookup, our goal isn’t to sell you on one provider over another. Instead we focus on helping you make the best decision for your family or business. Whether the provider is big or small, it doesn’t matter our goal is to show all of your options.
This philosophy and the fact that hundreds of providers big and small trust us with their data are the core reasons why we’re able to offer the the most accurate zip code results possible.
To date, we’ve catalogued 2800 providers with a total of 4892 coverage footprints.
Compare Deals And Promotions All In One Place
Knowing which providers offer service where you need it is often only half the battle. The sometimes harder part is understanding which plan or promotion fits your needs best.
To simplify this process, our full time team of researchers manually visits providers websites looking for plan details and reading the fine print.
Since we started collecting plans in 2014, we’ve organized 28,000 total plans 13,000 of those being currently active.
This means whether you’re searching for details on the latest XFINITY promotion or Fios bundle you got in the mail or you’re looking for a basic internet plan from a local provider like Rise Broadband or WoW!, the fastest internet providers in San Jose or the lowest gigabit internet prices in Philadelphia, we’ve collected and organized all of the plan details you need in one place.
Additionally, when we spot things that consumers should know about in the fine print such as promotional periods, modem costs, and whether or not provider’s plan includes a data cap we work to include those details so you can be informed when comparing plans.
Real World Download Speeds And User Reviews
In researching real world internet usage across thousands of providers, we’ve found that service can vary dramatically from region to region.
To help give you a clearer picture what download speeds you can expect to receive in a specific zip code, we show you speed tests results from real users in your area.
This speed test data comes from 146,663,211 speed tests over the last 12 months and we localize those tests to just the ones near the zip code you searched.
Also when available, we’ll list reviews of providers from users in your city.
All of this is designed to help you make an informed decision.
Internet Provider Coverage in the U.S.
Beyond creating a great zip search tool, our company’s mission is to help bring awareness to the millions of Americans who don’t have real competition between 2 or more providers in their area.
As of June 2016, approximately 20.5 million million Americans still have no access to wired broadband internet service.
The FCC defines broadband as being able to deliver a minimum of 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload. These speeds are modest, but sufficient to support modern applications Americans use every day for education, employment, and essential communication.
White House reports state that increasing broadband coverage can enhance local economies and reduce unemployment — especially in low-income communities.

How We Aggregate And Analyze Data
We treat data aggregation the same way a gold panner searches for gold: starting with the “chunky” data and cross-verifying it against several layers of more granular datasets.
First, we aggregate governmental datasets at the census block level from the FCC and NTIA. Most of the valuable data at this stage is built on FCC form 477, which requires Internet providers to report their network coverage on a bi-annual basis.
Second, we bring in privatized datasets that leverage our direct relationships with providers. At this stage, we compare governmental data against verified lit addresses and make coverage estimates using mapping logic based on our extensive database of fiber line networks.
Finally, we cross-verify data that passes these tests against third-party datasets acquired from niche data aggregation groups. This includes data from broadband consultancies and mapping groups as well as IP identification from national speed test databases.
This process is time-intensive and expensive, but it allows us to produce the most granular and accurate results available to the public. For more details you can review our data page which outlines our datasets and efforts.
