Grande Internet deals are currently among the highest value plans offered in Texas. Their fast download speeds and local customer service have earned one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings among Internet providers.

If you want Internet that works well with Netflix at a reasonable price, the Power 300 plan is the best offering from Grande. 300 Mbps is fast enough to handle multiple HD or 4K video streams at once. Grande doesn't cap plans, so you can stream as much video as you like without paying extra fees. (Many other cable providers will charge you for watching too much Netflix. Grande is not one of them.)
Upload speeds on this plan should deliver between 10–20 Mbps. This isn't a strong as a pure fiber optic plan like Google Fiber, but it's enough for normal use like Skype, Facetime, and uploading youTube videos.
At $35.99, it's around half what you pay for fiber or even cable in other areas. You can pay more to get double the speed, but in my opinion 300Mbps is enough for 90% of households. At this price, I'd try it out and just upgrade if you want more.
Usually I recommend TV bundles for cable Internet customers. With Grande, it's a different story. Their bundles are good for large families, but most customers are better off combining an Internet-only plan like Power 300 with local over-the-air TV or a satellite TV service like DirecTV. Their Power 300 plan is perfect for the average customer who just wants to stream Netflix and Roku content without buffering.
- No data caps
- No contract
- 300 Mbps download speed

Grande Preferred TV vs Premier TV Packages
The main difference between Grande’s Preferred and Premier TV packages is that you have to go with Premier if you want NFL RedZone or NFL Network. Premier is the best option for sports content overall and worth the extra fees for regular national and local sports viewers. See complete channel listings here.
Grande Cable Plans and the TiVo DVR
Grande currently uses TiVo DVRs for their digital cable TV services. TiVo one of my favored DVRs on the market, and it delivers an experience similar to a Roku or other “smart TV” DVR. Aside from the basic features like HD recordings, pause/rewind on live TV, and etc, it also integrates with Grande’s mobile viewing options so you can access content on your phone or tablet when you’re not at home.
Eero Router for Home Wi-Fi
Grande currently provides Eero routers with their Internet plans.  Like other cable providers (Spectrum, Comcast, etc), they will charge you a small monthly fee of around nine dollars for the Wi-Fi router. Unlike other providers, Grande actually has a pretty strong router you get for the money.
The Eero router is a whole-home “mesh network” router that makes it easy to get strong signal across a large floorplan. Eero routers also provide a user-friendly way to set parental controls, guest networks, and other pro features.
If you already own a router or prefer to skip the monthly fee, Grande Internet plans work well with most third-party routers like Netgear, Google Wi-Fi, Plume, etc.
Grande Internet Deals are Best for Cord Cutters
Ultimately, the best part of what Grande offers is the unlimited streaming and fast download speeds. Especially in areas served by their Gig plans, you won’t find a better price without sacrificing speed.
