What makes a good internet provider?

In some cities or rural areas, there is only one choice of internet service provider (I.S.P.). However, in Prescott we have several options. So, what makes the difference between internet companies?

Wireline vs Wireless

The first major consideration is whether the internet service you purchase is provided via a physical wire to your home, or if it’s some sort of wireless technology. Wireline technologies include cable, DSL, and fiber optic. Wireless internet can be delivered via cellular (5G or 4G), satellite (like Starlink), or fixed wireless.

If it’s available in your area, we strongly recommend choosing a wireline provider. In general, wireline providers are able to provide more reliable and faster internet service. Wireless solutions are often unreliable, slow, and disconnect during inclement weather. Wireline internet service does not suffer from these same problems.

Speed and Reliability

Although we mentioned speed and reliability above, this should be a consideration all on its own. Will you be gaming, streaming 4k movies and TV, or working from home online? The speed and reliability of your internet connection is important. An internet service that is always offline during prime time is a big bummer. You also need to make sure your internet is fast enough to meet your unique needs.

Customer Service and Support

As with any other company, customer service is an important consideration when choosing an internet service provider in Prescott. No technology is perfect. So, no matter who you choose, you’ll have to call their tech support line eventually. Whether or not you can easily talk to a tech support representative will make a big difference in your overall experience.

What internet providers are available in Prescott?
