About Internet Service in Denver

As Colorado’s capital and largest city, Denver is the most prominent commercial hub in the Rocky Mountain region. The city’s largest employers include Lockheed Martin, Mapquest, United Airlines, and other companies that require consistent Internet coverage and speedy connections in order to do business. Denver’s downstream speed is slightly above the national average, but relatively slow when compared to other cities and towns in Colorado. However, considering the city is often subjected to extreme weather conditions ― and, quite literally, a mile high ― 20.50 Mbps seems like a pretty impressive downloading rate.

Internet Speed in Denver

Denver leads Colorado in the number of IP addresses by more than 350,000 unique IPs ― which may explain why the city doesn’t even place within the state’s top 50 cities when it comes to downstream speed. At 20.50 Mbps, Denver is just slightly above the national average of 20.42 Mbps ― but for upstream speed, the city is nearly half a megabyte-per- second slower than the national average.

Denver-Area Providers

The National Broadband Map lists a dozen ISPs operating in the Denver area that offer plans with downstream speeds of 3 Mbps or more, but some of these companies exclusively offer coverage to businesses and professional facilities. The following four ISPs are Denver’s leading broadband providers for private residences.


  • Service Areas: Throughout Denver
  • Service Tiers: Economy Plus, Performance Starter, Extreme 105
  • Downstream Speeds: 3 Mbps, 6 Mbps, 105 Mbps
  • Monthly Price: $19.95, $49.95, $79.99
  • Features and Limitations: As in many other U.S. cities where it has a major presence, Comcast leads Denver’s residential ISPs by a very wide margin. The company’s two top-tier plans allow data to be downloaded at rates of 50 and 105 Mbps, respectively; these are ideal for individuals and families who download a lot of music, videos, and other data ― and can afford to pay between $65 and $80 per month for Internet access.


  • Service Areas: Throughout Denver, coverage and downstream speed depends on exact location
  • Service Tiers: High Speed Internet, High Speed Internet Enhanced
  • Downstream Speeds: 0.5 Mbps to 15 Mbps
  • Monthly Price: $19.99, $29.99
  • Features and Limitations: Verizon is either the best or worst deal in town, depending on the customer’s location and service needs. The company’s top-tier plan, priced at $29.99 per month, downloads data up to a speed of 15 Mbps; however, in some coverage areas, the speed could be as low as 3 Mbps. Before entering in a contract with Verizon, it will behoove Denver residents to figure out where their household falls on this spectrum.


  • Service Areas: Throughout Denver, coverage and downstream speed depends on exact location
  • Service Tiers: Four plans determined by downstream speeds (see next entry)
  • Downstream Speeds: 768 Kbps, 1.5 Mbps, 3 Mbps, 6 Mbps
  • Monthly Price: $19.95, $24.95, $29.95, $34.95
  • Features and Limitations: AT&T’s second-tier plan offers a downstream speed of 1.5 Mbps at a rate of $24.95 per month, making it a suitable option for customers who don’t require quick connections. For users who download a lot of music, videos, and other media, however, there are other plans available in Denver that are faster and more cost-effective.


  • Service Areas: Throughout Denver, coverage depends on exact residence
  • Service Tiers: (Data Caps) 500 MB, 2.5 GB, 4.5 GB, 6.5 GB, 8.5 GB, 10.5 GB
  • Downstream Speeds: All T-Mobile service plans include access to the 4G LTE Mobile Data Network, which is equipped for downstream speeds of roughly 15 to 20 Mbps.
  • Monthly Price: $20, $30, $40, $50, $60, $70
  • Features and Limitations: T-Mobile’s data cap plans may appeal to customers or turn them away; their reaction will depend on how much music and media they download every month. If this number falls below 4.5 GB, then the price will be comparable to competing ISPs, but any more and the monthly rates start to look awfully expensive. Most customers with $70 to spend on Internet access each much would probably opt for Comcast’s Extreme 105, which downloads data at a rate more than five times as quickly as T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network.
