Is Ziply Fiber good?

Ziply Fiber’s fiber internet service comes with zippy speeds at competitive prices. Unfortunately, Ziply Fiber’s DSL plan has wildly varying speeds—some as low as 1 Mbps, depending on where you live.

All Ziply plans come with some of our favorite perks: unlimited data, no annual contracts, and a 30-day money-back guarantee. So if you can get a Ziply Fiber fiber internet plan, we recommend it over the competition. But if Ziply Fiber offers only DSL in your area, see if other providers offer better speeds before you sign up.

Ziply Fiber’s internet plans get a big thumbs up from us. Other providers charge between $49.99 and $125.00 per month for gigabit plans, so that $60 per month price lands nicely on the low end.

Heads up: Like most internet providers, Ziply Fiber offers new customers a discount for the first 12 months. After that promotional period, prices raise to Ziply Fiber’s standard rates. You can see both the promotional price and standard rates in the table above.

You might notice DSL Internet’s price doesn’t change—Ziply Fiber doesn’t currently offer promotional pricing on that plan, so the price is same for new or ongoing customers.

You’ll get a moderate price on Fiber 200/200 plan compared to similar fiber plans. And it’s a bunch cheaper than most cable internet plans at the same speed, so we give it our nod of approval. Plans of around 100 Mbps or more are suitable for most homes, so this is our go-to recommendation if you don’t need gigabit speeds but still want fast internet.

The real killer deal is Fiber 50/50, which starts at $20 a month. The speeds are a bit low for a family of four, but it’s an excellent option for homes with one to two people looking to save some cash on internet.

Of course, all those plans are available only in Ziply Fiber’s fiber internet areas. If you’re on Ziply Fiber’s DSL internet plan, it’s a whole different story. We’ve seen speeds as slow as 1 Mbps, which is just ridiculously lethargic. If you’re in a DSL area, look at competitors for faster speeds.

While customers in our recent survey named AT&T among the best internet providers, Ziply Fiber’s plans are more affordable. And since Ziply is a relatively new up-and-coming provider, it didn’t make it onto that survey. We’ll be interested to see how it compares in the future.

Be sure to take a look at CenturyLink, too, if it’s in your area. Its gigabit plan is just a tad pricier than Ziply Fiber’s, but we’ve seen it offer free equipment when you order online. Since Ziply charges $10 per month for equipment, you’ll save some cash if CenturyLink has that deal right now.

Cox isn’t a bad option, especially if you’re in an area where it offers faster speeds than Ziply Fiber’s DSL network. But Cox charges extra for no-contract plans, while all Ziply Fiber’s plans come without an annual contract at no additional cost.

Xfinity’s plans tend to be more expensive than Ziply Fiber’s, but it’s also a reliable alternative to Ziply Fiber’s DSL internet. We just wish its no-contract options weren’t so pricey.

Ziply Fiber internet equipment

Along with your internet plan, you’ll need to rent a Ziply Fiber router to get Wi-Fi throughout your home. Whether you have fiber or DSL service, your router will cost $10 per month.

And if you have a large home that’s prone to Wi-Fi dead spots, you might consider going for Ziply Fiber’s Whole Home Wi-Fi kit. For $20 per month, it includes your Ziply Fiber router and three Wi-Fi extenders to extend your Wi-Fi’s reach to the far corners of your house.

However, you don’t have to use Ziply Fiber’s router if you don’t want to. You can save more money over time by paying for your own router upfront. We’ve got some router suggestions if you’re interested.

Ziply internet equipment prices

  • Ziply Fiber router: $10.00/mo.
  • Whole-Home Wi-Fi: $20.00/mo.

Ziply Fiber internet and phone bundles

Ziply’s exact phone and internet bundle options depend on Ziply’s network in your area. If your address gets Ziply Fiber, you can get Ziply’s Home Phone Unlimited Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. The service costs $10.00, although you’ll also need to add Ziply’s fiber router rental for an additional $10.00 monthly. But for the price—which is in line with other fiber internet providers—you’ll get standard features like unlimited nationwide coverage and caller ID.

If your address gets only DSL coverage from Ziply, you’ll have to settle for Ziply’s Digital Phone Unlimited plan. You’ll still get features like unlimited long-distance calls and won’t have to pay for a Ziply router rental, but it’s also relatively pricey at $31.99/mo.

Ziply Fiber customer service

You can reach Ziply Fiber’s customer service by phone at +1-866-699-4759 or through online chat. Ziply Fiber customer support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

That’s standard procedure for most internet providers, but we’re glad Ziply Fiber isn’t making you jump through any hoops (such as Xfinity’s complete lack of customer service phone number).

Final take: Is Ziply Fiber worth it?

Ziply Fiber stands out as a fair and competitively priced internet service provider. We’re pleased by its no-contract policy, unlimited data, and fast fiber speeds. It may not be the best option if you’re on Ziply Fiber’s DSL network, but if you can get in on the fiber network, you’re set for a strong, reliable connection.
