The Top Business Internet Service Providers in Maryland

Business Internet Service by Tom Collins

Your business Internet service could be a blessing or a curse for your company.

You see, your Internet service goes beyond just being able to communicate with your customers. If your Internet is spotty, you'll frustrate employees, lose efficiency, and miss out on revenue. With a quality provider, though, you'll be able to provide a better experience for everyone who interacts with your organization online.

Use this list of the top business Internet service providers in Maryland to ensure that you get the most from your Internet service provider.

6 of the Top Business Internet Service Providers in Maryland

Ensuring your Internet service provider can meet the demands of your organization should be a high priority on your list. The speed and reliability of your Internet are woven into nearly everything your modern company does. It affects your customer service, your employees' productivity, and can influence your marketing and sales.

We're firm believers that local options for your Internet service provider are best. Local companies are invested in the area, just like you. They have a stake in the performance of their clients because the growth of the business means the growth of the area, which then leads to more companies moving in.

It means they'll provide higher-end customer service, with technicians who are also from the area. And if things go wrong, you'll know the exact office to call for help, not some outsourced call center who can't handle the problem.

As you look for your business Internet service, consider the local companies that make this top-notch list of options.

1. Atlantech Online (Silver Spring)

Atlantech should be at the top of your list as a Maryland telecommunications business. Based in the Silver Spring but serving the Greater Washington DC region, we offer up to and beyond 1 Gbps speeds, and with high end Juniper routers in our core, our network is capable of nearly 10 Tb/s of throughput. We also use Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and SD-WAN capabilities to efficiently use available network throughput.

Since we prioritize delivering reliable service to our customers, we pay extra attention to the redundant features of our network. Our Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) at the core allows multiple signals to travel concurrently at different wavelengths on the same fiber. Along with our points of presence (POPs), this set up allows our customers to receive uninterrupted service, leading to less packet loss, latency, and downtime.

The fact that we're local also means we're as invested in the success of the area as you. Our techs, customer service, and offices are all within arm's reach if needed, and we're happy to help get your building fiber lit if it isn't already. Learn more about our fiber connectivity services here.

You can also check for fiber availability in your building.

2. Xecunet (Frederick)

Based in Frederick, Xecunet offers secure, reliable, and scalable business Internet services. Like other local companies, Xecunet will help you find the best package for your Internet, rather than setting you up with the cookie-cutter solution.

Xecunet can set you up with network planning, circuit design and implementation, and a managed firewall service. They will constantly monitor your connection for pin, latency, and utilization to ensure you're getting the fastest connection for your company.

With Xecunet's FastE and GigE packages, you can receive between 100 to 1,000 Mbps, delivered by either Ethernet or Fiber. Additionally, you'll get 24/7 support for your service in case something should go wrong.

3. Quantum Internet and Telephone (Manchester)

Quantum Internet and Telephone is a business Internet solution for those looking for fiber in Maryland. Their business fiber requires a multi-year agreement, but you'll then have access to 1 Gbps speeds, as well as email accounts, and dynamic IP Addressing.

Quantum also gives you the option to add web hosting, domain registration, and a static IP/Subnet for added fees. This makes it a useful package if you're starting a business and want to get set up with a single provider.

4. Believe Broadband (Baltimore)

Believe Broadband is based out of Baltimore and provides a wireless business Internet service around Maryland. They claim the advantage of using wireless Internet instead of a wired connection is the ability to increase your speed instantly with a simple phone call. Increasing speeds over a single T-1 connection could take up 45 days.

Their wireless service is best suited for large organizations that span multiple floors of their building. They monitor service 24/7 to ensure customers never experience a drop in speeds.

Because the service is wireless, ensure you can get the speeds you need for your business. While they can still be reliable, wireless connections aren't able to deliver the same performance as fiber-optic Internet.

5. Atlantic Broadband (Easton)

Atlantic Broadband provides the speed, flexibility, and reliability you need from a fiber Internet connection. They can provide scalable speeds from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps, and you can upgrade or downgrade as necessary.

Atlantic Broadband maintains points of presence across the region, so you'll have redundancy with their network. And because they work off fiber, you'll also have access to a more secure infrastructure.

6. GiGstreem (Baltimore)

GiGstreem offers services to businesses in Maryland, providing speeds from 150 Mbps to 10 Gbps. The network includes direct peers to cloud-based software providers so you'll see reduced signal drops, lag time, and lower latency.

GiGstreem provides 24/7 customer support and offers no Data Caps. You can also bundle services for all your telecommunications needs. And, if you host live events, GiGstreem can even set up temporary WiFi for your business to provide to guests.

The Best Local Options for Internet in Maryland

These companies all have excellent reputations and are outstanding options for your business's Internet service. Whether you're in Baltimore or Silver Spring, these local providers will have your best interests in mind and can offer more tailored solutions than most national companies.
