The leading 10 Internet service providers in the United States are Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, AT&T, Juno, NetZero, DishNET, HughesNet, Charter and CenturyLink, as of 2015. Not all providers are available in every area, and each has various features and options.
Comcast is one of the largest Internet service providers, with more than 17 million Internet cable customers, as of 2015. The company offers a variety of packages with varying connections speeds and pricing. Customers can also choose to bundle their Internet service with cable and phone to save money. Time Warner Cable has its own hybrid fiber coaxial cable network that provides high-speed connections, but offers lower speed options for a lower price as well. Speed options are also dependent on the area in which the customer lives.
Verizon offers several Internet services, including fiber optic and DSL. The fiber optic network ranks high in customer satisfaction, which is one reason why Verizon's Internet services continue to expand. AT&T's services include DSL, dial-up and U-verse and a growing network of fiber Internet. Both Juno and NetZero are owned by United Online and offer dial-up services for those in rural communities or for those who want a basic low-cost service. DishNET is popular among those who have satellite television and want to save money by bundling it with satellite Internet.
