Best Internet-Only Provider in Glendale, CA

For most Glendale residents looking for just internet, Spectrum cable is our top internet provider. At an availability of >99%, just about every Glendale neighborhood can access Spectrum's cable speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The main reason we give the edge to Spectrum over AT&T is price and availability. Spectrum's plans start at $49.99/mo with no contract (300 Mbps). AT&T Fiber, while a great offer, is available to less than 15% of all addresses in Glendale - so, most folks will have to settle for AT&T's slower DSL (all priced at $55/mo, regardless of speed).

Only Spectrum TV carries Dodger games

Lastly, if you're a Dodger fan in SoCal, there's (unfortunately) only one place in town to catch local games on TV: Spectrum TV (SportsNet). In most cases, a TV/internet Spectrum bundle makes the most sense, financially. Those bundles currently start at around $109.98/mo -- a solid value to get the Spectrum TV Select plan and all regular and postseason Dodger games.

Back to AT&T fiber, if it's available in your area and, especially if baseball isn't your thing, we highly recommend it. That same AT&T DSL price of $55, gets you the AT&T Fiber 300 plan, with download AND upload speeds of 300.

Fastest Internet in Glendale, CA

If cost takes a back seat to speed, below are the fastest plans for each major provider in Glendale. Keep in mind that above 1 Gbps, you really won't see a lot more speed/responsiveness unless your household is constantly streaming at least 5 very high resolution TV or video games at a time..

Note: AT&T Fiber does have a Fiber 5,000 (5 Gbps) plan but it isn't currently available in Glendale.

Spectrum vs AT&T Comparison: Glendale, CA

As you can probably tell, internet choices in Glendale usually boil down to two choices, Spectrum and AT&T. As mentioned, AT&T has two types of internet available in Glendale: Standard (DSL) and Fiber. AT&T Fiber provides a lot more value for the cost, so if it's available to you, we highly recommend it. Unfortunately, less than 15% of Glendale residents have access to AT&T fiber. If you're not in the camp, Spectrum is usually the better option, especially for Dodger fans.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the cheapest internet in Glendale, CA?

Spectrum, Viasat and Earthlink all come in around $50/mo. XTREAM does have a 15 Mpbs plan for $29.99/mo but with a Glendale availability of less than 1%, we didn't include it in our analysis.

Will AT&T Fiber improve their availability in Glendale soon?

Hard to say. While AT&T is always looking to expand their Fiber availability in large cities like Glendale, their rollout strategy usually comes down to recent profit. Bottom line, we expect them to slowly increase visibility but not in a big rush.

Which provider has the fastest internet in Glendale?

At 1 Gbps, it's a dead heat between AT&T Fiber and Spectrum. AT&T may eventually roll out their Fiber 5 Gbps plan in Glendale, but for now, it's a tie.

Should I really even consider Viasat, given the other wired options?

In a fairly big city like Glendale with plenty of fiber and cable internet providers, Viasat's value goes down signficantly. Reason being is that Viasat costs 2-3x more for the same speeds as traditional, wired internet. So, unless you're in a remote patch of the city with NO other options, go with cable or fiber internet.
