Best internet providers in Jeffersonville, Indiana

Our top 3 ISP choices in Jeffersonville, IN
Our top three internet providers in Jeffersonville, IN, are AT&T fiber, Spectrum internet, and T-Mobile 5G Home Internet.
#1: AT&T fiber internet
AT&T fiber is the top fiber internet provider in Jeffersonville. Availability across town is a little unpredictable—some areas are almost completely covered and others are still waiting for access. But if your address is eligible, you can’t beat AT&T fiber’s reliability.

#2: Spectrum internet
Spectrum is more widely available in Jeffersonville than AT&T fiber, and you can still get fast plans with similar download/upload speeds to fiber internet. But you should plan for a price hike in your second year of service.

#3: T-Mobile 5G Home Internet
Similar to Spectrum, T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is more widely available in Jeffersonville than AT&T fiber. T-Mobile offers a fixed wireless connection, which works off of cell towers the same way your smartphone does. Available speeds through T-Mobile are slower, but it’s also cheaper than our other two picks.

All internet providers in Jeffersonville
Spectrum and T-Mobile Home Internet have the widest availability across Jeffersonville aside from satellite internet providers, which we don’t generally recommend. You’ll get faster speeds through Spectrum internet than you can through T-Mobile, but either should work well for average-sized households.
Local internet providers with more limited access include Verizon Home Internet and Astound Broadband. Verizon Home Internet is similar to T-Mobile but can be even faster if you’re lucky enough to have access at your address. Astound Broadband is barely available in much of Jeffersonville, but it’s not much different from cable providers like Spectrum.
Fastest internet providers in Jeffersonville
The absolute fastest provider in Jeffersonville is AT&T fiber, which offers speeds up to 5,000 Mbps (a.k.a. 5 gigs). Only businesses could possibly need speeds that high, and if you have an average household then it’s not worth paying for 5 gigs. But Spectrum internet and Astound Broadband both offer up to 1 gig in parts of Jeffersonville, which is still ultra-fast.
How much speed do you need?
Cheapest internet providers in Jeffersonville
Fixed wireless providers are almost always the cheapest option. In Jeffersonville, that means T-Mobile Home Internet. One of the reasons T-Mobile is cheaper is because it doesn’t charge common fees, such as equipment fees. And you can install T-Mobile Home Internet yourself, so you don’t have to pay for installation either.
Internet options in nearby cities
Available internet providers in other cities near Louisville are similar to Jeffersonville’s options. Most nearby cities also offer AT&T fiber (depending on where you live), Spectrum internet, and T-Mobile Home Internet.

I see a lot of posts about internet options in Louisville
A few important notes -
- Generally speaking, Louisville has absolutely outstanding internet.
- Just because an ISP is available in Louisville does not mean the infrastructure is available to your particular home or apartment.
- some apartments / small communities are pre-wired with exclusivity agreements that prevent other ISP’s from coming in. As of February this year, this practice is now illegal. FCC requires all new developments to offer multiple ISP’s. They are not requiring places to retrofit, but just keep it in mind - you may not have access to all these services
- I really do not know about cellular internet that is unlimited so I am leaving it out of here
- Google Fiber is gone and never coming back. They failed miserably here. They presented a plan to Bill Dieruf as to how they planned on installing infrastructure in J-Town and he basically told them “this shit will never work in Louisville Kentucky”. They ignored his caution, went to the highlands and lost a ton of money trying to execute it. The freeze / thaw cycles in Louisville are not going to allow future ISP expansion here. Google’s plan was to cut asphalt in roads and it failed within a year. Fibers were popping up out of the road and they were not permitted to use telephone / power poles.
- Google wasn't even able to come up with a plan to use our existing power and telephone lines. Don't bank on ever having any other hardline providers in town.
- The hard line providers (spectrum and ATT) get plenty of bandwidth to your home. If you are ever calling to “up your bandwidth” because of poor performance, you need to look at the hardware running your setup. A 4K Netflix stream uses about 6 megs per second. In theory you should be able to watch 50 simultaneous Netflix streams before buffering on a 400 meg connection.
Spectrum - has coaxial based internet and cable options. Available just about anywhere in the city except for down rural roads. Great internet. Their hardware sucks. I always tell people “spectrum has a responsibility to get good service to your home. Once it is inside, it is your responsibility”. So if you get your own modem / router you can have great success with Spectrum for under $50 / month. I have had spectrum for 8 years at my current home and literally never once had a service outage or buffered. Never. Once. Not being dramatic. Spectrum does not guarantee bandwidth however even if they get 50 megs a second to your home yoh should be floating.
AT&T Fiber - has fiber optic based internet and cable options. They are rapidly deploying fiber throughout the city. If it is not available for you, call them and they can tell you when they expect to be in your area. AT&T fiber works very well and is less prone to service calls because fiber is light and light doesn’t fail. AT&T does guarantee bandwidth. If you are paying for 200 meg / second you will always get that amount. Sometimes faster.
AT&T UVerse (note, link will direct you to fiber as you can no longer sign up for UVerse) - uses copper telephone lines. officially in legacy mode now. They are no longer deploying. If you are able to get it, run. Downright miserable experience. They use the same phone lines that were brought into your home in the 1990’s for DSL.
Iglou - identical to AT&T fiber. No access to cable tv. Same thing as getting AT&T, but you get to call a 502 number. They even send AT&T techs and use their equipment.
Bluegrass.Net - sends internet to your home via wireless antenna bridge. They rent real estate on top of large buildings and water towers throughout the Metro which is surprisingly effective. Worth a call if you’re fed up with other providers or cannot get their service. Can game. Fine service.
Hughes.net Satellite - miserable, but an option. Can stream movies. Cannot game due to high latency. Very spotty service, but an option.
ViaSat Satellite - better than Hughes IMO, but still miserable. Better than nothing.
Starlink - Their website says nothing in Louisville until 2023 but someone here is claiming to have it. Haven't seen proof and I've never seen Starlink gear or service tech in town which doesn't mean it's definitely NOT here but take that as you will
Cellular options - sorry, you’re on your own. If someone drops a note on their experience with it I will gladly update. Click the link for more info
edit 1 - including links to all providers. Removed my incorrect reference to Google not having access to telephone lines when they were trying to get going here
ATT fiber Pros: really fast, really cheap for speeds you get, own line instead of a shared network Cons: not available everywhere
Only options here are T-Mobile, Spectrum and ATT. No iglou or fiber, is anyone using T-mobile and like it?
I use it and It’s mostly reliable but there’s sometimes drops where you have to reload a webpage multiple times to get it to connect. Located in old louisville. Quality likely depends on location.
Good day fellow Louisvillians,
Basically what the title says. How much do you pay for internet monthly?
I live in 40206 and have used spectrum for years; started at $50/month in 2018 for the first year and slowly increased afterwards.
My monthly payment was at $80 for a long time and I just saw today that it went up to $85. I have the most basic internet - honestly not sure what the speed is lol. Our household doesn't have a lot devices connected. Can't help but to be annoyed as the cost of living keeps rising along with the lack of notification of raised rates. Maybe I missed something. Maybe this is just the standard rates and I'm not being robbed.
I called IGLOU about a month ago and got quoted $75/month. I assume I can't get much lower because of the zip code?
Either way, feel free to use this space to rant about the cost of internet, life, and raised prices!
UPDATE: After some procrastination, finally decided to go with AT&T fiber 300 mbps for $55. I'm hyped to save $30 per month thanks to you all!
I have ATT fiber, currently $65 a month.
