High Speed Internet in Irvine, CA

Internet may as well be the blue sky covering Irvine. 96.5% of Irvine residents have access to traditional, wireline internet connections that have an average download speed of 51 Mbps. Those that live under the clouds, don't worry. Satellite internet is there when wireline internet is not. Including satellite internet providers, there is a total of 31 internet service providers in Irvine. However, if you want to be realistic, there's only four worth subscribing to: AT&T, Cox, Exede, and HughesNet. The last two are satellite providers. Just so we're clear, we do not recommend getting satellite internet if you have access to wireline internet connections. Only those without access or those who live in rural, remote areas should get satellite internet.

To pick the best provider for you, you need to know how much speed you'll need. If you're into online gaming, you'll need at least 50 Mbps. Matter of fact, 50 Mbps is a good speed to start off with for anyone unless you hardly use the internet. Most of us who use the internet nearly as much as we breathe need at least 50 Mbps so pages load quickly and there's little to no lag. You also need to take into account how many people and devices will be connected. The more there are, the higher speeds you'll need. This will help make sure everyone has a smooth experience and not want to pull their hair out when waiting for a page to load.

With that being said, Cox is the better choice. While AT&T and Cox both offer up to 1,000 Mbps, that's only to those with access to fiber connectivity and only 4% of Irvine has that access. 93.6% of residents have access to cable internet which is great because Cox provides cable internet with speeds up to 300 Mbps. DSL may be more accessible but only by 2.9% and it's top speed is only 100 Mbps. That's fast but not as fast as what Cox offers.
