What is the best internet provider in Denver?

Quantum Fiber is the best internet service provider for most households in Denver due to its symmetrical download and upload speeds that other providers in the area don't offer. If Quantum Fiber isn't serviceable at your address or CenturyLink DSL service is the only option (the same company owns Quantum Fiber and CenturyLink), Xfinity and Starry Internet are solid broadband alternatives.

If you're searching for the lowest monthly cost on Denver internet, Xfinity's Connect plan offers 75Mbps for $20 per month. Xfinity also takes the prize for the fastest internet plan in the city: 2,000 megabits per second for $120 monthly. However, if you want fiber connectivity instead of cable -- especially for the symmetrical speeds -- Ting and Quantum Fiber offer plans with gigabit download and upload speeds.

Our methodology

CNET considers speeds, pricing, customer service and overall value to recommend the best internet service in Denver across several categories. Our evaluation includes referencing a proprietary database built over years of reviewing internet services. We validate that against provider information by spot-checking local addresses for service availability. We also do a close read of providers' terms and conditions and, when needed, will call ISPs to verify the details.

Despite our efforts to find the most recent and accurate information, our process has some limitations you should know about. Pricing and speed data are variable: Certain addresses may qualify for different service tiers, and monthly costs may vary, even within a city. The best way to identify your options is to plug your address into a provider's website.

Also, the prices, speed and other information listed above and in the provider cards below may differ from what we found in our research. The cards display the full range of a provider's pricing and speed across the US, according to our database of plan information provided directly by ISPs. At the same time, the text is specific to what's available in Denver. The prices referenced within this article's text come from our research and include applicable discounts for setting up automatic payments each month -- a standard industry offering. Discounts and promotions might also be available for signing a term contract or bundling multiple services.

To learn more about how we review internet providers, visit our full methodology page.

Best internet in Denver, Colorado

Our take - Formerly known as CenturyLink's fiber service, Quantum Fiber is one of the few fiber providers in the greater Denver area. Per the Federal Communication Commission's most recent figures, CenturyLink DSL service still makes up more than half of its coverage map, but if you can get Quantum Fiber, don't hesitate.

Shortly after, it was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022. However, Starry also ended the year on the outs with the NYSE.

Other available internet providers in Denver

Cheap internet options in Denver

The cheapest internet plan you can find in Denver is Xfinity's Connect plan, which features 75Mbps download speeds for $20 per month. Granted, that price jumps to $50 after your promo period, but at that point, you can consider other options (or negotiate with your provider) before committing to that plan at the higher price.

Speaking of cheap internet, particularly low-income internet options, you should be aware that all the providers we've listed also participate in the FCC's Affordable Connectivity Program. It provides eligible low-income households a $30 monthly discount for affordable, high-speed internet. The ACP can go toward any internet plan (not just lower-tiered offerings) from participating providers. In May 2022, 20 providers partnered with the White House on its digital divide initiatives and vowed to offer plans of at least 100Mbps that customers could ultimately get for free when paired with the ACP.

Source: CNET analysis of provider data.

How to find internet deals and promotions in Denver

The best internet deals and top promotions in Denver depend on the discounts available during that period. Most deals are short-lived, but we look frequently for the latest offers.

Denver internet providers, such as Xfinity and Rise Broadband, may offer lower introductory pricing or streaming add-ons for a limited time. Others, however -- including CenturyLink, Quantum Fiber, Starry Internet and T-Mobile -- run the same standard pricing year-round.

For a more extensive list of promotions, check out our guide on the best internet deals.

How fast is Denver broadband?

Regarding internet speeds, "Cow Town" is almost too appropriate. Denver didn't fare well on its median download internet speeds compared with other top US cities. It was second-to-last, beating only Atlanta. Ookla's speed test data shows Xfinity as Denver's fastest provider, with a median download speed of approximately 236Mbps in the area.

Only one provider offers a multi-gigabit plan within the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metro area -- Xfinity's Gigabit X2, which offers speeds up to 2,000Mbps for $120 a month. That should soon change as Quantum Fiber (CenturyLink) plans to bring multi-gig plans to the Denver area. But until then, let's say that Denver's not exactly Chattanooga fast regarding internet speed.

Source: CNET analysis of provider data.

What's a good internet speed?

Most internet connection plans can now handle basic productivity and communication tasks. If you're looking for an internet plan that can accommodate videoconferencing, streaming video or gaming, you'll have a better experience with a more robust connection. Here's an overview of the recommended minimum download speeds for various applications, according to the FCC. Note that these are only guidelines -- and that internet speed, service and performance vary by connection type, provider and address.

For more information, refer to our guide on how much internet speed you really need.

How CNET chose the best internet providers in Denver

Internet service providers are numerous and regional. Unlike the latest smartphone, laptop, router or kitchen tool, it's impractical to personally test every internet service provider in a given city. So what's our approach? For starters, we tap into a proprietary database of pricing, availability and speed information that draws from our own historical ISP data, partner data and mapping information from the Federal Communications Commission at FCC.gov.

But it doesn’t end there. We go to the FCC’s website to check our data and ensure we consider every ISP that provides service in an area. We also input local addresses on provider websites to find specific options for residents. We look at sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and J.D. Power, to evaluate how happy customers are with an ISP's service. ISP plans and prices are subject to frequent changes; all information provided is accurate as of publication.

Once we have this localized information, we ask three main questions:

While the answer to those questions is often layered and complex, the providers who come closest to “yes” on all three are the ones we recommend. When selecting the cheapest internet service, we look for the plans with the lowest monthly fee, though we also factor in things like price increases, equipment fees and contracts. Choosing the fastest internet service is relatively straightforward. We look at advertised upload and download speeds and consider real-world speed data from sources like Ookla and FCC reports.

To explore our process in more depth, visit our how we test ISPs page.

What's the final word on internet providers in Denver?

While you can certainly find ways to connect in Denver, there aren't the same number of options available here as you might find in some other big cities across the country. Xfinity's cable internet -- and the seven different plans it offers -- will probably be your top option, but if your address is serviceable for Quantum Fiber, make that your first choice.

'Tis the season for Santa to come visit kids all across America in this nation's shopping malls. A unique Santa has stopped by the Cherry Creek Shopping Center this week.

This Santa Claus is a Black Santa. He visited children at the mall for four days, two in November and two in December. Seven-year-old Hailyn Smith's mom Kristy pulled her out of school and drove up to Denver from Colorado Springs for her first-time meeting Santa. Kristy says this was the right time and the right Santa.

"You don't see a lot of people that look like us around here so to actually have a (Black) Santa Claus for a small little kid…that's basically why it was so important," said Kristy.

Santa wants all kids, no matter their skin color, to feel special for Christmas and all year round. Which is why he is happy to be in Colorado.

"It lets them know that they can aspire to be anybody or anything they want to be and I think that it gives them a sense of pride, a sense of belonging, a sense of community," said Santa.

He says the smiles on the kids' faces are what motivates him to travel the country making appearances.

"It's all about the kids and the magic of Christmas and them being able to feel like that they're the only one in the room and when they smile and holler, 'Santa!' It just brings me so much joy, so much happiness and puts a great big smile on my face as well," said Santa.

This particular Santa will be appearing at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center on Dec. 6 and 7 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Check the latest winter weather alerts for all of Colorado.

The system will move out quickly on Saturday, although there will be some snow showers lingering in the mountains through the weekend.

It will be a chilly day today. Especially over the plains where gusts to 45 mph will make for a cold one today. Over the mountains, expect occasional light snow. Additional snowfall is expected to be less than 2 inches. #cowx pic.twitter.com/h9ClCuFRxe

Hundreds of migrants who arrived in Denver last month are being sheltered in Aurora. When they checked into the motel, residents who'd been living there for months say they were pushed out.

The City of Denver is currently providing shelter to more than 2,600 migrants. About 400 of them are staying at the Quality Inn in Aurora. The city says it leased the motel after hundreds of migrants arrived on Thanksgiving.

Joe Sauceda, his partner and their dog have lived at that Quality Inn for nearly a year. When they went to extend their stay, the couple was told the motel could no longer accommodate them.

"We slept in our car Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. It's been cold. We have blankets but still, it was rough." said Sauceda. "People who were staying there, some of them were older. They've been there for years. Where did they go?"

Sauceda works at JJ's Place, a sports bar owned by Aurora councilwoman Danielle Jurinsky. She shared her frustration over Sauceda's displacement at Monday's council meeting.

"The city of Aurora is not a sanctuary city. However, Denver prides themself on being a sanctuary city," she said. "This is Denver Mayor Mike Johnston bussing migrants into the city of Aurora, taking up hotels, and throwing American citizens, Aurora residents onto the streets."

In a statement, the City of Aurora writes:

"Denver's decision to transport migrants to a privately owned hotel in Aurora was Denver's decision alone. While Denver provided a general heads up to Aurora about this possibility over the last several weeks, they have not communicated how they will provide resources to the migrants including food, transportation and other services. It would be helpful to understand their plan for these people to get them the resources they need.

It is our understanding that Denver Human Services is leading this effort and should be able to provide more information. We are unable to speak to any specific circumstances of the situation given our limited knowledge of what has transpired.

Without any city-owned shelter space or related infrastructure for migrants, Aurora is currently limited in its ability to house individuals. The city is not structured like the counties that are funded to provide health and human services. We embrace our culturally rich and diverse community and maximize our existing resources as efficiently as possible, but they are not limitless."

In a statement, the office of Mayor Mike Johnston writes:

"This facility was opened in late November with the understanding and cooperation of Aurora and Arapahoe County officials.

Nearly 300 people arrived in Denver on Thanksgiving Day, and we worked quickly to bring on hundreds of rooms to help people get out of the cold. Once we realized other guests had been displaced to another hotel in the chain, we immediately worked with the hotel operator to ensure those guests could return at the same extended-stay rate. The operator also offered to provide those guests with a free week's stay. We will continue to reinforce that we never want to displace guests."

As Saucedo moves back into the motel, he worries this could happen to more people as migrants continue to trickle into Aurora.

"I know they're trying to better themselves by coming here. But the fact is we have our own people that we need to take care of," said Sauceda.
