Wilmington, NC provider recommendations

Spectrum, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are the best internet providers in Wilmington, North Carolina. Spectrum is more ubiquitous than Dawson’s Creek filming locations in the port city—the cable provider is available from Wrightsville Beach to the Riverwalk, and its cable packages offer a great deal with fast speeds, affordable prices, and unlimited data. AT&T Fiber is another great option. Although not as widely available, it gives customers symmetrical gigabit speeds and unlimited data. UNCW students and other users on a budget can appreciate the lower prices and generous terms of T-Mobile 5G Home Internet and Verizon 5G Home Internet—both come with unlimited data, don’t require contracts, and offer mobile bundle discounts.
