High Speed Internet in Hartford, CT

With 305,773 people living in the city, you have 23 internet providers available that will cater to you and your needs. Three major providers cover the Hartford area, so let's take a look at each one and see what works best for you.

Frontier covers nearly all of Hartford with DSL and copper internet, both of which offer up to 115 Mbps. Its plan speeds that range from 12 Mbps to 115 Mbps are ideal for light to moderate internet users. You can do your basic emailing, online homework, or stream movies on Netflix or Hulu with ease. You can also connect a number of devices, like smartphones, laptops or TVs with minimal lag. This is great for the average household who needs to stay connected. 

Xfinity offers a majority of the population with reliable cable internet. This technology shares bandwidth with all your neighbors, so it may be common to see a loading page or a buffering video.  But with their advertised speeds, Xfinity is one of the fastest providers with plans ranging from 25 Mbps to 200 Mbps. 200 Mbps supports the heavy online gamers, YouTube vloggers, or big movie streamers with their reliable connections and speed. You're able to connect to a number of devices without experiencing much lag, making it great for households that have heavier internet users. 

Cox has the fastest speeds that Hartford has to offer, but only covers one fifth of the entire city.  With cable internet, they have speeds from 30 Mbps to 300 Mbps, which is more than enough for the average internet user.  You can do almost anything with 300 Mbps, and with little to no lag, you really have the flexibility and reliability you need when choosing a plan. For those who need to stay connected, 300 Mbps is ideal and fast. But check the coverage map below or call one of our agents to make sure it's available in your area.

If none of these providers reach your area, your best bet is getting satellite internet by either Viasat or HughesNet.  They offer competitive high speeds that are great for the moderate internet user, but they can throttle your speeds if too many devices are connected at a time.  It's also not great in the fall or winter because poor weather conditions could affect your satellite connection.  Check with your area to see if this is the only option for you.
