The Best Gaming ISPs in the US 2020 and 2021

There are many kinds of ISPs in the United States, from big giant corporate monoliths like Comcast and Charter to conglomerates that specialize in one thing but still want to have a finger in the broadband provider pie—like AT&T, Google, and Verizon. Then there are lots of small ISPs that fill in the gaps not filled by their larger competitors, be they a local utility or a start-up company that sees a need.

The lineup of major ISPs doesn't change much year to year, but that's not the case when measuring "all" ISPs. Reminder: for an ISP to be included we just need 100 individual tests or more from that provider over the year. So sometimes ISPs we've never heard of crop up as their users take the PCMag Speed Test, and 2020 is no different.

For example, last year's top placed gaming ISP was DirectLink, a co-op ISP out of Oregon—but this year, DirectLink didn't even make the cut (it didn't have anywhere near 100 tests). Which is too bad because it had a killer 5.2 Gaming Quality Index.

This time around the award goes to an ISP we are familiar with for winning in our Fastest ISPs story over the summer: CFU, or Cedar Falls Utilities, in Iowa. CFU is still posting impressive speeds and quality; its 9.1 Gaming Quality Index is the best among any ISP in the nation.

But second place is only one-tenth of a point away, and that goes to a regional ISP, Empire Access, an upstart installing fiber lines in townships along the central border of New York and Pennsylvania. (Full Disclosure: the author's father is an Empire Access customer, and the author is jealous.) Empire Access doesn't have the best speed scores, but for low latency it's good enough for an e-athlete to consider a move.
