Find internet service and providers in Hawaii
Overview of internet satisfaction and availability in Hawaii
Spectrum and Hawaiian Telecom are the primary internet service providers (ISPs) in Hawaii. Of the two, Spectrum’s cable internet service has the widest availability, but both services can be found throughout the Islands.
Hawaiians also have wireless internet options from Starlink’s low earth orbit satellite internet service and T-Mobile’s 5G fixed-wireless, both of which have excellent availability throughout Hawaii. While satellite and fixed-wireless internet provide service quality comparable to their fiber and cable competitors, specific customers, like gamers, may notice increased latency. That being said, most customers won’t even notice the difference in latency, but they certainly will notice the great rates and easy setup. In fact, T-Mobile received higher ratings than any other ISP in our annual customer satisfaction survey.
Internet providers received an average satisfaction rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars from customers in Hawaii.
That ranks Hawaii 50th nationwide for internet customer satisfaction.Learn more about our methodology
