Which Internet Service Provider Is America’s Fastest? every quarter, Internet Speed Test Ookla company publishes data collected from millions of people who use it Speedtest.net tool to determine which internet provider offers the fastest average download speeds. spectrum And Xfinity have swapped places back and forth since last summer. Now the verdict for the first three months of 2023 has fallen spectrum is up again.
Spectrum, Charter Communications’ internet service provider, took pole position with an average download speed of just under 235 megabits per second, beating out the previous quarter’s winner, Comcast’s Xfinity, which ended the first quarter of 2023 with an average download speed of just just finished just under 233Mbps.
Fastest internet providers in the US

To qualify as one of the top ISPs in the country in this survey, an ISP must appear in 3% or more of the total test data collected during the three months. For example, EPB, a provider in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has the nation’s fastest residential Internet plan at 25 gigabits per second (or 25,000 Mbps). But since it’s only available in that part of the country, it won’t make the national list (although it certainly tops the Tennessee list).
Also note that the 3% threshold is based on data from tests conducted by customers across the country, not just whether a provider covers 3% of the country. T Mobile Home Internetfor example, according to which is now available for 60% of the country Report on the communication marketplace 2022 published by the Federal Communications Commission in December. However, the customer base, which grew to over 2.6 million subscribers, was not large enough to be included on this top list.
Although Spectrum’s speed test results using Ookla yielded an average download speed of 235 Mbps, that doesn’t mean every Spectrum subscriber will get at least 235 Mbps. That doesn’t mean some Spectrum subscribers won’t see faster speeds either – Spectrum offers a Gigabit plan with download speeds of 940Mbps. It’s just a good snapshot of a typical US customer’s experience with their internet service.
Will Spectrum hold on to this prime spot? Can Xfinity bounce back? Or will Cox, who took the lead from April to June 2022, find his way back to the top? We’ll be watching what happens with the second quarter 2023 results.
