Finding a reliably fast high-speed internet service provider (ISP) for your home or business is an important and necessary task. But making your way through all the widely available features, advertised speeds (including upload speeds and download speeds), and ISPs can be time consuming and confusing. Choosing the best internet service provider can be just like choosing the right ingredients for a cooking recipe. If you lack the knowledge or experience needed, you will end up just picking one and hoping for the best. Well, good news! Now, you don’t need to jump blindly into a contract and risk losing time and money! So, without further delay, let’s explore this short guide to choosing the best internet service provider that delivers reliably fast services.
One of the biggest problems you can face when choosing a high-speed internet service provider is getting lost in the data plans a company offers and not getting the plan that suits your needs. For example, deciphering the differences between a AT&T fiber internet plan and a Verizon Fios plan can come down to minute details, such as a bill credit for a fee that applies for installation, a data cap amount, or any conditions and restrictions that apply.
Before you start researching companies that provide internet access for your location, decide what you want. Will you use your internet connection for online gaming or streaming videos (including watch TV)? Do you need secure internet to start a small business online? Are you considering bundling your mobile phone and internet services? Do you want to have the fastest upload speed and download speed on the market for all your web browsing needs? These are all questions that you will need to ask yourself before you start to compare plans and services offered by different ISPs.
Not every company is able to provide the residential internet or business internet access you need at your location. So, check availability of connection types by looking online for local fiber network availability. Aura Fiber is available in 22 states. To see if Aura’s 1000Mbps speeds are available to you, enter your zip code or contact us directly. Also find out which extra service features vary based on your location. Some traditional types of internet connections (like DSL and cable internet connections, which are made of copper wires) are more widely available than others (like fiber connections, which use the latest optic-fiber network). You will also run into satellite internet providers who offer dish TV as part of their services.
Here’s a little tip: While fiber optic internet availability isn’t as extensive as DSL and cable (since fiber is considered a “frontier” internet connection), it is growing rapidly. Fiber internet is the fastest internet connection method on the market. Find out if you’re one of the lucky business or residential customers living in areas where fiber lines have been laid. If so, take advantage and get connected to super fast 1000Mbps download and upload speeds.
Aura Fiber uses an ultra-fast gigabit internet connection. Gigabit fiber offers connection speeds of 1 Gigabit per second, which is 30 x faster than the current average download speed in America. Plus, Gigabit fiber won’t bottleneck. It can deliver lightning fast speeds to multiple connected devices at the same time.
Residential and business customers have access to a range of extra features with fiber internet. Just to name a few: unlimited data, bundled phone, TV, and internet, multiple internet bundles, home phone, mobile phone and wireless plans, home security systems, smart home capabilities, powerful WiFi, price guarantee, nationwide calling, digital voice, click to call software, and many more.
Now that you have a list of fiber ISPs, look at their customer reviews either on a reviews website, on the company’s own website, or in community forums. You will probably begin to lean towards one company or another based on customer feedback.
Once you’ve narrowed your list down to 2-3 ISPs, talk to their customer service representatives. You should confirm that the plans, services, and package details they are offering are available in your area. We cannot express highly enough the importance of knowing package details! Actual speeds vs. advertised speeds may differ. Make sure you know what the actual speeds at your location will be. Customer satisfaction should be the goal of any ISP. Finding out from the start what you’re signing up for will help to guarantee you’re happy with your new ISP. Once you have compared all ISPs on your list, you can select the best internet service provider for you. Contact your top choice ISP and let them know what you expect out of your internet access and data plan. Aura Fiber will assist you personally to get your fiber connection plan set up for your needs.
