High Speed Internet in Greensboro, NC

Looking for internet in Greensboro? There are currently 22 internet providers in your area to choose from. The most widely available type of internet in Greensboro is cable, reaching nearly 100% of the population. Cable speeds are enough for fairly heavy internet use. The next most available option is DSL, reaching about 99% of residents. DSL internet in Greensboro is generally slower, but sufficient for light internet users. If you only use your connection for things like browsing the web or checking the news, you’ll be good to go. Another option that’s widely available is fixed wireless, which reaches about 70% of the population. However, we wouldn’t recommend going with a fixed wireless connection, because average download speeds are incredibly slow. We're talking 1 Mbps slow. Around 40% of the city will have fiber optic internet as an option. This ultra-fast connection offers average download speeds of 1,000 Mbps in the city, which is more than enough, even for the largest of households.

Since comparing 22 different internet providers in your area would be a massive headache, let’s narrow the search down to 2. Your first choice is Spectrum, which is available to all of the city. Spectrum offers cable internet plans with starting speeds of 60 Mbps to 300 Mbps. 60 Mbps is enough speed for binge-watching your favorite Netflix shows, online gaming, or downloading movies in HD. However, if you live in a large household of heavy internet users, you might want to go with a faster plan or opt for a provider with faster speeds. Your second option for internet in Greensboro is AT&T. This provider’s DSL and fiber connections are available to almost the entire population. AT&T’s packages offer internet speeds ranging from 5 Mbps all the way up to 1,000 Mbps. Keep in mind that DSL is very slow on average in Greensboro, despite advertised speeds for this provider. We’d recommend going with one of AT&T’s fiber plans if it’s available in your area. With 1,000 Mbps, you’ll be able to connect as many devices to the internet as you want without experiencing much lag or buffering.

If neither of these providers are available in your area, you’ll still have a few options for internet. HughesNet offers satellite internet in Greensboro. HughesNet has internet packages with download speeds of 25 Mbps, which is enough speed for watching your shows or doing basic web-browsing. However, satellite connections experience a lot of lagging, so gamers will need to go with another provider.
