Best internet service providers in the United States are no longer the only ones you should be paying attention to.
In a new survey, researchers from Consumer Reports, Consumers Union, and the Consumer Federation of America surveyed consumers about their broadband experience and found that they’re now more likely to use a broadband provider that doesn’t charge you for data than a company that does.
Here’s what we learned.
The survey also found that more than half of respondents said they use their internet service at least 10 hours a day, which is about one-third of the average US household.
The companies with the best broadband in the country were Comcast and AT&T, both of which have been accused of unfairly throttling the internet in the past.
Comcast and Verizon are the only broadband providers to have a rating of “Gold,” the highest possible score.
The lowest possible rating is “Silver.”
Comcast and Sprint, which also have a Gold rating, have been in the news lately for throttling internet access in the wake of the FCC’s net neutrality rules.
AT> has been accused by some customers of slowing down the speed of some internet connections, as well as of paying internet service companies to do so.
Consumer Reports also said that it found that the average cost per gigabyte of internet service has gone up, but that it hasn’t seen a real increase in speeds.
Consumers are also more likely now to pay for more data than they were 10 years ago, Consumer Reports found.
While the survey is just a snapshot of what consumers think about broadband providers, it is important to remember that the companies that do the best have the most to lose if net neutrality stays the same.
“The question of whether the net neutrality protections that the FCC passed in 2015 have had any impact on the industry has been a contentious topic for a long time,” the survey authors wrote.
“While many of the major internet providers have made substantial investments in new technologies and technologies in recent years, some of those investments are still being paid for by customers.
Comcast has been criticized for throttles that have left some customers without speeds that were adequate to do what they wanted to do online. “
In addition to a lack of meaningful changes to broadband pricing and services, consumers also remain unsatisfied with the experience they have with ISPs and their data caps.”

While Comcast has tried to downplay its internet throttling practices, the company has been under fire for the past several years for not paying for data.
The company has faced multiple complaints about its throttling tactics and has denied all allegations of unfair treatment.
Verizon has been one of the most prominent providers of internet speed and data caps in the US, and is often compared to Comcast in its own marketing materials.
The US’s largest internet provider has also been the target of multiple lawsuits by internet users who say that it has overcharged them for internet access.
The Consumer Federation also found several instances in which Verizon has throttled internet speeds for customers without justification.
Comcast, Verizon, and AT &t all have a “Gold” rating, which means they’re in the top 10% of internet speeds in the nation.
While there is no specific data available on what data caps are for the internet providers that have the highest speeds, Comcast and Time Warner Cable both have data caps that can go as high as 20GB a month for unlimited data plans.
Consumers should also be aware that internet service is expensive.
In an industry that’s increasingly shifting to mobile internet, internet service plans are increasingly becoming more expensive.
Consumers can save money by cutting the cord, and Comcast has started charging customers for the privilege of doing so.
Comcast recently announced a new program to pay subscribers for the first year of a service plan.
This program will pay customers to use the internet for 10 days before they pay $10 a month.
For a $10 monthly plan, customers will receive a $30 credit towards their bill.
Comcast is also offering a $1-per-month service plan that will pay subscribers $1.50 for each month they use the service.
Consumers who opt to cancel their service with Comcast will still receive a credit, but will need to pay $5 a month in order to get rid of their service.
