Overview of internet satisfaction and availability in Texas

Texas goes big on internet options, with well over 150 internet providers operating across the state. Spectrum and AT&T are the most widely available providers, and both can get you excellent service with affordable prices and impressive speeds—but avoid AT&T’s sluggish DSL service if a faster connection is available.

Pockets of the Lone Star State can also get fiber, cable or affordable 5G access from T-Mobile 5G Home Internet, Frontier, Optimum, and Astound Broadband.

Internet providers received an average satisfaction rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars from customers in Texas.

That ranks Texas 21st nationwide for internet customer satisfaction.
