What You Should Know About Home Internet Plans

Tips on Choosing the Best Internet Plan

There’s no shortage of companies out there today offering unlimited Internet plans and promising great discounts when you switch to their service.

But not all Internet plans and connections are the same.

In fact, they can vary tremendously in terms of the performance, reliability, and customer service that they provide.

Choosing the right provider can mean the difference between having a fabulous experience with fast, reliable Internet service—or a frustrating one, with dropped connections and spotty service.

But with so many home Internet plans to choose from, how do you ensure that you’re making the right choice for your family’s needs now—and in the future?

Here are some questions to think about when you compare Internet plans.

What to Consider When Choosing an Internet Plan

  • Take a look at the technology. It all starts with the network. The best Internet plans offer a winning combination of both speed and reliable connection. When you use the right technology, you can load movies, videos, music, and other high-bandwidth files quickly and consistently with a constant connection. Ask yourself: is the Internet plan you’re considering backed by a network with a reputation for technological excellence?
  • Download and Upload Speeds: Internet connections aren’t just for downloading. You need an equally fast Internet speed to share your favorite pictures and videos and to connect over video chat. Are matching upload and download speeds available to help you get the most from your Internet connection?
  • Reliability: How reliable is the network connection offered? Can the company back up its claims about its high speed Internet plans with evidence from reputable research firms?
  • Flexibility: Does the provider offer a wide variety of plans and pricing so you can upgrade easily in the future if needed?
  • Customer Support: Is on-site installation by trained professionals available? If you experience outages or other problems with your Internet service, can you get assistance quickly? Is phone, email, or chat customer support available 24/7?
  • Cost: Does the ISP offer discounts to save you money if you combine their Internet service with phone and/or television service? Is the price they offer fixed for a guaranteed length of time?
  • Contracts and Terms: Does the provider offer a firm written estimate? Choose an ISP that offers terms that you’re comfortable with and that spells out exactly what services you’ll receive.
