EarthLink Internet Service

EarthLink has achieved the broadest customer reach among wired internet providers, even though it doesn't own its networks. Instead, EarthLink relies on the existing infrastructure of other providers like AT&T, CenturyLink, Frontier, and Verizon, primarily utilizing their copper and fiber networks. Additionally, EarthLink may offer satellite internet from Viasat and 5G service in certain areas.

EarthLink Internet Contracts & Data Caps

  • Fiber Optic Internet: This comes with no data caps and no throttling. This means you can use unlimited data every month without any restrictions on speed.

  • Wireless Home Internet: EarthLink offers Wireless Home Internet with data plans instead of unlimited data. These plans range from 100 GB to unlimited data, with the most common plans having data caps. 

  • If you reach your data limit before the month ends, your internet speed will be throttled (slowed down) significantly, to around 128 Kbps.

  • There is an exclusive WFH Unlimited plan (Work From Home) with supposedly unlimited data, but speeds are capped at 25 Mbps and can still be throttled if you use more than 300 GB in a month.

Data caps vary based on the connection type

  • EarthLink offers Fiber Optic internet with unlimited data, no caps, no worries.

  • Their Wireless Home Internet has data plans, ranging from 100 GB to supposedly unlimited options. Be careful though, exceeding data caps throttles speeds to a crawl (128 Kbps).

EarthLink Plans & Pricing

EarthLink itself doesn't own the infrastructure for internet connections and partners with other providers depending on your location. However, based on their website, they offer two main internet service plans: Fiber Optic Internet and Wireless Home Internet

Postpaid Plans
  • Fiber Optic Internet: This is their most premium plan which comes with unlimited data, fast and reliable speeds, and upload speeds are just as fast as download speeds, it is also less susceptible to interference.

  • Wireless Home Internet: This uses cellular networks (like 4G LTE and potentially 5G) to deliver internet.  The plans range from 100 GB to unlimited data, with the most common plans having data caps.

Prepaid Plans
  • EarthLink actually doesn't offer prepaid internet plans. 

  • Their service works with standard internet contracts, not prepaid options.
