In our technology-based world, we are constantly immersed in ads about internet service providers (ISPs) and the packages they offer for home and office. If you think about the last time you watched an hour-long TV show, you can probably recall two or three commercials about internet services.
If you aren’t satisfied with your current ISP, then you should take a few minutes to research which ISPs are available in your area. Go even further and find out which ISPs offer fiber internet. Fiber is the best connection method on the market. It uses light to conduct and transmit data instead of electricity. Therefore, it is more reliable, secure, and FAST!
Now that you are ready to look at fiber options, here are some tips for finding and choosing the top fiber internet provider in your area:
Search by zip code: There are many online network coverage sites out there that offer the “search by zip code” option. A quick google search for “fiber network availability” will show you which providers can deliver fiber to your home. Click on one of the many fiber network coverage sites and type in your zip code. A list of providers in your area will appear. Aura Fiber is available in 22 states with our advanced network expanding across the country.
Compare ISP Plans: Once you have a list of top fiber internet providers in your area, compare the benefits of each ISP (like the maximum speeds available, prices, bundles, data caps, or connection options). Then, look at customer reviews of the companies. These might be reviews on the company’s website, Facebook feedback, or Consumer Report reviews.
To save you a little bit of time, here are some pros and cons for some of the top ISPs:
Pros – Large coverage area, fair technology offerings, cheap prices.
Cons – Continually don’t deliver the speed their customers pay for (hence the lawsuits they are dealing with currently), extremely slow upload speeds, misleading marketing tactics.
Pros – Large coverage area, large funds to invest in the latest technology, a good amount of options.
Cons – Overseas call centers, poor customer service, “big company syndrome”(which means they don’t always pay attention to customer’s needs).
Pros – Large coverage area, fantastic customer service, latest and best fiber technology, extremely fast internet speeds, same upload/download speed options.
You’ve done your research and considered the pros and cons. Now it’s time to choose the fiber internet provider that’s right for you-
Select a fiber ISP: Now that you have narrowed down your choices, make a selection. Give your top ISP choice a call and ask about opening an account with them. Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. The customer service representatives are there to help answer any questions you might have, so don’t hesitate to get personal advice.
Schedule installation: Once you have selected your new fiber ISP, set up a contract that suits your needs and budget. Next, schedule a time with your new ISP for a certified technician to come to your location and install your fiber connection. Once a fiber connection is installed properly, maintenance shouldn’t be needed (for real!). You are now installed, connected, and ready to experience the fastest internet available.
Finding and choosing a fiber internet provider can be an intimidating task if you live in a large, populated area. However, you shouldn’t be intimidated at all. With expert internet companies, like Aura Fiber, you can experience an easy transition into fast fiber internet. That’s not all! Here are some things that make Aura Fiber better than the other ISPs:
