5 Best Internet Providers For Gaming

Internet Providers

There’s three things that really anger all serious rural online gamers; lag, losing or dying because of the lag on their end or someone on their team and being kicked from the game or lobby due to a terrible internet connection. You can avoid most of these things if you choose the right internet plan with a good internet provider. We’ve done the research for you and these are the five best internet providers for gaming out there right now.

1. Verizon FiOS Internet Providers

Internet Type: Fiber To The Home

If you want to mop the floor with the opposing team’s tears, Verizon FiOS is where it’s at. We’ve rated Verizon FiOS first because of their fast speeds, low latency, reasonable prices and high rating in customer satisfaction.

Verizon FiOS Internet Plans Monthly Price Download Speeds
200 Mbps Internet $39.99/Mo. 200 Mbps
400 Mbps Internet $59.99/Mo. 400 Mbps
Gigabit Internet $79.99/Mo. 940 Mbps

2. Comcast Xfinity Internet Providers

Internet Type: Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial

Xfinity will also give you an advantage over your competition with their fast speeds and better than average latency scores. We’ve rated Comcast Xfinity second because of their vast service area and plan options. However, buyers beware with this provider. Comcast Xfinity is widely known for their atrocious customer service. Almost all internet providers have bad customer reviews, but Xfinity’s can be surprisingly vile.

Xfinity Internet Plans Monthly Price Download Speeds
Up To 15 Mbps Internet $49.99/Mo. 15 Mbps
Up To 100 Mbps Internet $39.99/Mo. 100 Mbps
Up To 200 Mbps Internet $54.99/Mo. 200 Mbps
Up To 300 Mbps Internet $59.99/Mo. 300 Mbps
Up To 600 Mbps Internet $69.99/Mo. 600 Mbps
Up To 1000 Mbps Internet $79.99/Mo. 1000 Mbps
Up To 2000 Mbps Internet $299.95/Mo. 2000 Mbps


Internet Type: Fiber To The Home

CenturyLink is another solid choice that’ll have you crushing the opposing team in no time. Their internet service can support many users and even many gamers in the same home with next to no lag time. We’ve rated CenturyLink third because their top tier speed of up to 940 Mbps is an extraordinarily good deal. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal with the same great speeds.

CenturyLink Internet Plans Monthly Price Download Speeds Data Plans
10 Mbps $49/Mo. Up 10 Mbps 1 TB
20 Mbps $49/Mo. Up 20 Mbps 1 TB
40 Mbps $49/Mo. Up  40 Mbps 1 TB
100 Mbps $49/Mo. Up 100 Mbps 1 TB
940 Mbps $65/Mo. Up 940 Mbps 1 TB

4. Spectrum

Internet Type: Cable

If you’re a serious gamer looking for the best possible speeds and there’s no fiber available in your neighborhood, Spectrum may be the very best option available to you. We’ve rated Spectrum fourth because it’s still a cable connection. While a cable connection isn’t bad, it’s not amazing either. There are a few small areas with fiber to home, but they appear to be few and far between. To be sure on exactly what you’ll be getting, we recommend calling and asking first.

Spectrum Internet Plans Monthly Price Download Speeds
Internet $49.99/Mo. 100 Mbps
Internet Ultra $69.99/Mo. 400 Mbps
Internet Gig $109.99/Mo. 940 Mbps

5. MetroNet

Internet Type: Fiber To The Home

If you’re in a neighborhood with MetroNet internet, you’ve likely heard of it. They pride themselves on their 100% fiber internet, which much of their competition cannot come close to claiming. We’ve rated MetroNet fifth because even though we love their 100% fiber to the home network, MetroNet isn’t available everywhere. The majority of their service area covers the Midwest, at least for now. MetroNet is expanding as quickly as fiber internet can, but don’t hold out for MetroNet anytime soon unless they’re currently mid construction in your neighborhood.

MetroNet Internet Plans Monthly Price Download Speeds
100/100 Mbps Internet $49.95/Mo. 100 Mbps
200/200 Mbps Internet $59.95/Mo. 200 Mbps
500/500 Mbps Internet $69.95/Mo. 500 Mbps
1/1 Gbps Internet $89.95/Mo. 1 Gbps
