We’ll get you connected.
Compare Internet service providers and save with UtilityHound.
With so many Internet options available, choosing the right one can be difficult, especially when you go it alone. At UtilityHound, we take the hassle out of finding the best Internet provider in your area. Not only do we help you find the best rates, but we will also set up your account and schedule the installation. And we do it all at no charge to you!
Who Is The Best Internet Provider In My Area?
The best Internet provider varies depending on your location and personal preference. While some may see the cheapest Internet provider as being the best, others consider the best to be the Internet provider who offers the fastest download and upload speed. It all depends on your individual demands. At UtilityHound, we help our customers find the perfect home Internet provider to match you and your family’s individual needs.
How Does UtilityHound Work?
At UtilityHound, we take into consideration the type of service you need, whether it’s exploring broadband options, rural high-speed Internet, cable Internet access, satellite Internet providers, or mobile Internet providers. We will also look at your usage — for example, if you have a family of four with teenagers who stream nonstop, you’ll likely have different data needs than a single person who checks emails once a day. Then, we will get custom quotes on your behalf, present this information to you, and then schedule the installation of your chosen service, if you choose to proceed.
Give us a call or fill out the form on this page and our team will start assessing your Internet needs.
We Negotiate For You
We will reach out to our partner companies and negotiate the best rates for the services you need.
Leveraging our partnerships, we will scour the market and reach out to Internet service providers to compile a list of quotes for you to compare.
After we provide you with a list of plans, you can then evaluate your options and decide how to proceed.
Working with your chosen service provider, we will schedule a time for the installation of your Internet service.

Types Of Internet Providers In The United States
Broadband Internet delivered using digital subscriber lines (DSL) is one of the most popular Internet services in the United States. Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer this type of Internet service, and DSL is available in all 50 states. Not to be confused with dial-up Internet, DSL utilizes existing phone lines to deliver high-speed Internet. However, it does not tie up your phone like dial-up does, and it is generally 10 times faster than dial-up Internet.
Available to around 89 percent of the population in the United States, cable Internet is one of the most common home Internet services. As the name implies, cable Internet works by utilizing the same lines used to deliver cable television. This makes it one of the most convenient ways of getting high-speed Internet in your home. Many prefer cable because it has a wider bandwidth than DSL, and it is already installed in most homes, unlike fiber.
Currently, fiber-optic Internet service is one of the fastest home Internet services, offering speeds up to 2 Gbps. Although there are over 200 fiber Internet providers nationwide, it is only available to around 25 percent of the United States. While fiber-optic Internet services are faster than DSL and cable, they are also generally more expensive. If fiber-optic Internet is available in your area, it may be the fastest and most reliable option.
Satellite Internet is available almost everywhere in the United States. All that’s needed is a clear view of the sky and a place to mount a dish. However, because satellite Internet works by sending wireless signals from the mounted dish all the way to a satellite in space, this distance causes some latency, which can make activities like online gaming challenging. Satellite Internet is ideal for rural areas where DSL, cable, and fiber Internet are not available.

Tips For Choosing Best Internet Provider
When looking for the best Internet provider in your area, there are several things to consider. Below is a quick list of some of the most important factors:
- Data caps
- Equipment rental
- Installation fees
Get the right package
Though many of us are limited to what we can get based on availability, ISPs typically offer a variety of internet speeds. Picking the Internet package that best aligns with your usage and needs is the key to finding the best deal. For example, if you have multiple people in the house that regularly stream movies and game online, you’ll want more than 10 Mbps. However, if all you do is browse and check email, a 10 Mbps plan will suffice.
When it comes to finding the best deal on your Internet service, the cheapest option is not always the best deal. The best Internet option for you will be the option that includes everything you need — reliability, speed, no contract, etc. — for the lowest price. For example, if you’re comparing plans and are considering the 10 Mbps plan, but you have a family of four that regularly streams movies, you will want to choose a faster speed that can meet your usage requirements.
Be on the lookout for special offers
Home Internet providers are always running special offers and promotions, whether it’s a discount for bundling other home services, like TV and phone, or special promotions that include free installation and free equipment. To get the best deal on your Internet, take advantage of special offers. At UtilityHound, we will not only negotiate the lowest possible rates with our partners, but we also have access to exclusive rates with some of our partners that aren’t available anywhere else.
Take note of data caps
Some Internet service providers may have a cap on how much data you can use in a month. Exceeding your allotted amount can result in slower speeds and even additional charges. When exploring your Internet options, be sure to take note of the monthly data allowance.

Frequently Asked Internet Questions
What is broadband?
Short for “broad bandwidth,” broadband is a term often used by ISPs to describe high-speed connections. The main types of broadband Internet are cable, DSL, fiber-optic, wireless, and satellite internet. According to the FCC, to be considered broadband Internet, the service must provide a minimum download speed of 25 Mbps and a minimum upload speed of 3 Mbps.
What is Mbps?
Mbps is the abbreviation for megabits per second. This is the unit used to measure the speed of Internet service. Mbps is not to be confused with MBps, which is megabytes per second. Megabytes are used for measuring file size, whereas megabits are used to measure Internet speed. You can convert bits to bytes by dividing by eight (8 bits = 1 byte).
How much Internet speed do I need?
The amount of data you need depends on your individual usage. If you are regularly streaming data and downloading large files, then Fiber, Cable, or DSL plans tend to be the best (in that order). However, your individual needs and your home’s location play a huge role in determining the best option for you.
How much does Internet cost?
The cost of home internet services varies. On average Internet companies charge between $30 to $70 a month.
How do I get Wi-Fi?
After choosing an Internet service provider, you will need a modem and a Wi-Fi router to set up wireless internet. Most internet providers will offer this equipment for purchase, rental, or for free.
Can I just get an Internet package? Or do I also need TV and phone services?
Most internet providers will offer standalone internet-only plans. However, many providers will offer special promotions and bundle packages, which can be cheaper than just getting broadband internet.
