About Internet Service in El Paso

Despite a population that places it within the 20 largest cities in the United States, El Paso lags behind much of the country in terms of web connectivity. Downstream and upstream speeds are among the lowest in Texas and the city has no fiber presence to speak of. It is surprising that, in an area where the dense local population grows considerably on an annual basis, Internet speed is slow and web access is sparse.

El Paso-Area Providers

According to the National Broadband Map, the following four ISPs are the sole broadband providers for residents of El Paso. Each one boasts the same downstream speed range of 10 to 25 Mbps, but prices will vary and high-speed access may not be available in some areas of the city.


  • Service Areas: Throughout El Paso, 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: Downstream speeds may vary depending on the account-holders address. That being said, El Paso residents who live in high coverage areas will find that Verizon offers the most cost-effective service plan; for a service plan at Time Warner that enables a downstream speed of 15 Mbps, they will pay five dollars more per month.


  • Service Areas: Throughout El Paso, 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 is the most cost-effective service option for users who don’t require fast downloading times. The fastest (and most expensive) plan ensures a downstream speed of 6 Mbps, which is relatively slow when compared to other ISPs in the area. One noticeable upside to AT&T is that first-time customers must only commit for six months.


  • Service Areas: Throughout El Paso, 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 is priced differently from other ISPs in El Paso; rather than downstream speed, pricing for the company’s six service plans is based on the amount of data downloaded each month. If the customer lives in an area with good coverage and reliable speed, then another ISP might offer a cheaper plan to fit his or her needs; otherwise, T-Mobile service might be the most suitable choice.

Time Warner

  • Service Areas: Throughout El Paso
  • Service Tiers: Everyday Low Price, Basic, Standard, Turbo, Extreme Ultimate
  • Downstream Speeds: 2 Mbps, 3 Mbps, 15 Mbps, 20 Mbps, 30 Mbps, 50 Mbps
  • Monthly Price: $14.99, $29.99, $34.99, $44.99, $54.99, $64.99
  • Features and Limitations: Time Warner’s rates for their first three packages are slightly more expensive than Verizon’s. El Paso residents should inquire about the downstream speed available at their residence; if it exceeds 15 Mbps and downloading data is a high priority for that individual, then Time Warner is the best option.
