High Speed Internet in Boise, ID

Three main internet providers cover almost 100% of all of Boise, and the only difference is the download speed each one offers. So whether you use the internet for just emailing or you're in the top ranks of your gaming world, you're bound to find one that works best for you.

Rise Broadband has virtually 100% coverage with fixed wireless, so you don't need to worry about if its accessible in your area. It offers either 25 or 50 Mbps, so both plans gives you enough speed to scroll through endless Wikipedia articles, update your social media following, or do your online homework without interruptions. However, Rise Broadband has a data cap of 350 GB per month, so if your household has a few Netflix binge-watchers, heavy gamers, or is connected through multiple devices, you're going to reach this limit faster than you think. Your speed will slow down significantly once you reach the data cap.

Cable ONE gives you cable internet with 99% coverage, however it's not available in some northern and easten parts of Boise. Definitely check with this internet provider if it's offered in your region. If it is, its plans start from 15 Mbps to 1000 Mbps, so you have quite a lot of options for whatever you need. The 15 Mbps gives you access to your emails, shopping sites, and online blogs without delay. This plan is really best for small households with few devices. The 1000 Mbps, however, gives you endless possibilities for whatever you want to do. You can play multiple television shows across different screens, be connected through your games with reliable speed, or download unlimited songs and movies under two minutes. 1000 Mbps is a great for big families, households, or even small businesses.

CenturyLink has a 98% coverage excluding small southern parts of the city, making it among the top three reachable providers. It offers DSL and fiber, with plans starting at 10 to 140 Mbps. 10 Mbps is great for your light internet browsing, like scrolling through Facebook or checking your emails. It isn't great for streaming 720p YouTube videos, Netflix shows in HD, or heavy gamers. 140 Mbps does all of that and more with a faster and more reliable speed, so choose the higher number if you're looking to stay connected without any lags.

If you're in an area where high speed internet isn't offered, providers such as Excede and HughesNet give you satellite internet with affordable speeds. Excede isn't the best for heavy internet users who like to be watching, downloading, and gaming all at the same time, but there isn't much of a choice if you're residing in an area with little coverage. HughesNet in Boise in only offered to businesses and not that many residents at the moment, so Excede for satellite is your best choice.
