What is the best internet provider in Lakewood?

A fiber internet connection is often the preferred choice for home internet, and that’s the case in Lakewood, Colorado, as Quantum Fiber is the area’s best internet service provider. Service comes with fast upload and download speeds, free equipment rental, unlimited data and no contract requirements.

Quantum Fiber’s high-speed internet selection is somewhat limited in Lakewood, with two different speed tiers to choose from: 500 and 940 megabits per second, starting at $50 and $75 per month, respectively. For more internet options, including cheaper and faster plans, consider Xfinity.

Lakewood’s primary cable internet provider, Xfinity, offers the cheapest internet plan, starting at $20 monthly for download speeds up to 75Mbps. Its fastest plan advertises download speeds up to 1,200Mbps, although upload speeds over the cable connection are much slower at 35Mbps.

Fixed wireless internet providers Verizon 5G Home Internet and T-Mobile Home Internet are worth considering for their decent speeds, low pricing and simple service terms, including unlimited data, free equipment and no contracts. You’ll likely get faster speeds with Verizon 5G Home Internet, but T-Mobile Home Internet has greater availability in Lakewood and the surrounding areas.

Our methodology

CNET considers speeds, pricing, customer service and overall value to recommend the best internet service in Lakewood across many 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 particular 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 Lakewood. 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. Other discounts and promotions might also be available for things like signing a term contract or bundling with multiple services.

Best internet provider in Lakeland, CO

Our take - A wider plan selection would be ideal, but Quantum Fiber’s 500 and 940Mbps deliver enough speed for nearly any home and household usage. Either plan is a great value with unlimited data, free equipment and no contract requirements included at no extra cost.

As such, it’s an ideal choice for internet in rural areas, offering speeds ranging from 72 to 245Mbps starting at $50 per month. Equipment and unlimited data are included with the contract-free service, and qualifying Magenta Max customers can get $20 off the monthly rate of home internet.

How to find internet deals and promotions in Lakewood

The best internet deals and the top promotions in Lakewood depend on what discounts are available during a given time. Most deals are short-lived, but we look frequently for the latest offers.

Lakewood internet providers, such as Xfinity, may offer lower introductory pricing or streaming add-ons for a limited time. Many providers, including Quantum Fiber, CenturyLink and Rise Broadband, run the same standard pricing year-round.

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

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 Federal Communications Commission. 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 Lakewood

Internet service providers are numerous and regional. Unlike the latest smartphone, laptop, router or kitchen tool, it’s impractical to personally test every ISP in a given city. What’s our approach? We start by researching the pricing, availability and speed information drawing on our own historical ISP data, the provider sites and mapping information from the Federal Communications Commission at FCC.gov.

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 the time 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 it comes to selecting the cheapest internet service, we look for the plans with the lowest monthly fee, although 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 also take into account real-world speed data from sources like Ookla and FCC reports.

Every day the team at American Samaritan brings new life to old furniture.

"Our phone rings on a continuous basis we are still not able to get out to all the people that want to donate to us," Douglas Evans said.

The family-run nonprofit has an entire showroom of used items, things not everyone can always afford, but often need.

Roughly 8,000 square feet filled with sofas, lamps, dining tables, and chairs.

"For a lot of people who needed furniture larger items, they are too expensive to purchase new they maybe don't have the means to transport to their house, single mom or elderly and they can't lift a couch," Evans said.

While their focus is on filling the need for those more necessary items. The family-run shop has found a soft spot for a sort of, luxury item, the piano.

Evans' daughter Rebecca has been playing since she was four- it was while trying to find her first piano he ended up with three, and their collection began.

"83 pianos later," Rebecca Evans said.

She's now 13 and the resident piano expert.

"It's been a family journey I've been here along the way so I kind of helped build it a little bit I've just seen how it works," she added.

With so many pianos, she thought it was time to do something different and now runs their "Pianos to the People" program.

"There's children who want to want to play the piano they just can't, so we try to break that barrier for them," Evans said about the program.

They are now giving pianos to children and families who can't afford them.

"We like to put music in front of children like they did with me because it's a way to communicate it's just something that so magical," she said.

While not everyone will benefit from a free piano, they're mission to provide as much help as they can to the community continues by offering a free furniture day.

Now, so popular families line up to get inside.

"Here is a line like out to the curb 100 plus people," Douglas Evans said.

Financially he says it's a loss, but the impact to those they serve and the feeling they get to hold on to, is priceless.

The first free furniture day of the new year is Saturday 10 a.m. at the American Samaritan showroom at 8400 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, CO 80215.

New navigation center in Lakewood helping unhoused people get back on their feet

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — A new resource is available for people experiencing homelessness in Jefferson County.

RecoveryWorks, a nonprofit that helps people get back on their feet and into permanent housing, held an open house Thursday for its new navigation center, located at 8000 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood.

About 75 to 100 unhoused people visit the navigation center each day, according to James Ginsburg, executive director of RecoveryWorks. The navigation center is in a 10,000-square-foot building that once housed a movie theater and motorcycle shop.

“It serves as a centralized location for anyone who's unhoused,” said James Ginsburg, executive director of RecoveryWorks.

The navigation center opened thanks to about $9 million in grants from the State of Colorado.

“It’s really a manifestation of the state’s vision to create rehousing infrastructure metro-wide,” said Ginsburg.

No appointments or referrals are necessary, and walk-ins are welcomed.

“It's a safe space,” said Ginsburg. “[You can] get access to emergency needs, food, clothing, shower, laundry services and then a whole array of services, including case management, mental health, primary care, dental care, I.D. acquisition, all with the intent of getting people from the street ultimately to permanent housing.”

For nearly three years, the nonprofit ran "a smaller version" of the center roughly 10 blocks from its new center. Ginsburg said the smaller facility is now a medical respite center for unhoused people who’ve recently been hospitalized.

“Instead of having to recuperate out on the street and often ending up back in the hospital, they can come to our medical respite center and heal there for a short period of time,” Ginsburg said.

When people visit the navigation center, they’re likely to run into Regina LeGron. Her life has been a challenge for the last several years.

“I came to Colorado about four years ago,” said LeGron. “I came from Texas. I've been through three states trying to get out of my situation.”

LeGron, who worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 25 years, said her life began to unravel when her identity was stolen following a series of home burglaries back in Texas.

“They stole all my credit cards, my pin numbers, and my credit score went from seven something to four something in six months. And that's actually what threw me on the streets,” said LeGron.

After a few years of being unhoused, LeGron learned about RecoveryWorks.

“They understand how hard it is, you know, to move every night from place to place because you have nowhere to go,” said LeGron.

RecoveryWorks also has a pre-employment program that helps people regain a sense of purpose and earn money. LeGron was hired as head of housekeeping at the navigation center.

“I’m very, very grateful,” said LeGron.

Ginsburg said they work with other employers to help people find long-term employment.

After living in a motel with her husband for the last three months, LeGron said she has saved enough money to help them get their own apartment, which they plan to move into this week.

“We're going in there with nothing. It's gonna be a new beginning for us,” said LeGron.

In Jefferson County, 854 people were experiencing homelessness at the beginning of 2023, which represents a 73% increase from the previous year, according to the annual Point in Time (PIT) Count. The PIT Count is a snapshot of the number of people experiencing homelessness on a single night.

Experts say while the PIT Count is a valuable tool, it likely underestimates the true number of people experiencing homelessness. The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless estimates between 10,000 and 53,000 people in Colorado experienced homelessness last year. The numbers vary greatly because of the many factors around homelessness and how people are counted.

Back at the navigation center, the staff and volunteers are committed to reducing homelessness person by person.

If you're interested in helping RecoveryWorks' mission, text "RecoveryWorks" (all one word) to 844-844-6844. You can also visit their website for more information.

Amid cold snap, Lakewood apartment resident had no heat

As residents across the Denver metro area braced for extreme temperatures throughout the weekend, some residents in Lakewood were feeling left in the cold.

"It's extremely frustrating," Isabel said.

Isabel is a resident of the Glenn at Lakewood apartment complex, and she says she was among a number of residents who did not have heat throughout the weekend.

"I noticed Saturday morning when I woke up at 10 and came out here it was 56 degrees in here," she said. There was no heat. It was just blowing cold air."

Isabel, who is choosing not to have her last name shared, showed CBS News Colorado inside her apartment on Monday, which was at 40 degrees, even though she has it turned on to 70.

"I called maintenance, and they came and checked and tried to bleed the system to get warm air through, and then from there, they found out the pumps weren't working," she said. "Heat was coming out from multiple buildings."

She and her roommate spent the first night getting creative to keep warm, including turning on the stove and leaving it open at 350 degrees.

"We just covered up with 10 blankets and were able to stay warm," said Isabel. "We covered all the windows, because that's a massive sliding door …we have that space heater running."

All of this took place while Isabel says they were getting no answers or solutions from property management.

"We've been calling the management. Our parents who are on the lease for us have been calling and they just aren't answering or hanging up. They're just not telling anyone anything that's happening," she said.

On Sunday, a pipe burst in their building, finally prompting the college student to stay with a friend temporarily while her roommate stayed at a hotel.

"Water was leaking from the ceiling," Isabel said. "We were so worried when we left last night that we covered beds. We put away valuables in case another pipe burst and soaked everything."

Isabel says it was not until Sunday evening they received information from the property manager of the complex about the lack of heat, saying they were working to get the issue solved.

"It's just too cold; it's just too hard," she said. "There's a whole bunch of people with pets and kids in these apartments, and not everyone has the luxury of heated blankets and collecting blankets."

The property manager has not responded to our calls and email for comments on Monday.

Since speaking with Isabel, she shared an email from management claiming that heating and hot water in her building has been restored and to notify staff if that has not happened.

New members and a new mayor were sworn in during the Nov. 27 Lakewood City Council meeting. The meeting kicked off with the Pledge of Allegiance led by two groups of young guests: Girl Scout Troop 68211 and Webelos Arrow of Light Den from Cub Scouts Troop 748.

The night began with an induction ceremony for the new mayor and city council members. Mayor Wendi Strom was sworn in by Municipal Judge Nicole Bozarth. She replaces two-term mayor Adam Paul.

After the induction, Paul recessed for a reception in the lobby of city hall. The council meeting that followed was Strom’s first time presiding as mayor.

The newly appointed official found the first meeting to be a mixed bag of emotions.

“It was different,” Strom said. She compared the experience to her tenure as mayor pro tem in 2023. “There were a lot of similarities that helped me feel a little bit more like I knew the flow. It’s so different, running the meeting versus just participating in a meeting.”

Four new Council members were inducted during the meeting as well. Glenda Sinks Ward 1, Roger Low Ward 3, Jacob LaBure Ward 5 and Dave Rein Ward 4 were sworn in. Isabel Cruz Ward 2, was not in attendance and will be sworn in at a later date. Each new councilor was sworn in by Judge Bozarth.

The induction of all the new members was followed by a reception on Monday night.

To see the induction ceremony, tune in to Lakewood, CO on YouTube.

Several Lakewood residents spoke up at the meeting against the proposed development planned for 777 Yarrow St. Longtime residents who live next to the park and others who visit the park regularly spoke, imploring the council to prevent the development from moving forward.

Mary Pietro spoke about the birds she sees on her daily walks through Belmar Park. Pietro said the bald eagles and other bird species need to be considered and protected.

James Grant echoed her concerns, asking the council and Mayor Strom to consider the park’s importance to the city.

Other speakers, including those from the Save Belmar Park organization, spoke about the ill effects that the new development would have on the water, the animal habitat, and other aspects of the park.

Other comments covered plowing bike lanes, continuing from the comments left online at LakewoodSpeaks.org. Three comments went into great detail about the issue.
