What is the best internet provider in downtown Los Angeles?

Spectrum is our pick for the best internet provider in downtown LA. This cable provider has the fastest speeds and the widest selection of packages. It’s the only internet provider that can get you proper gigabit speeds in much of the downtown area. Spectrum also gets you unlimited data and doesn’t require a contract.

If you’ve grown weary of cable internet, T-Mobile 5G Home Internet and Verizon 5G Home Internet are two other great options for downtown-dwelling Angelenos. Both services use a novel 5G fixed wireless system to get you solid speeds at an unbeatable price. You don’t have to deal with any extra fees for installation or equipment, and you don’t have to worry about other pesky things like “promo” prices or contracts.

  • Spectrum—fast and reliable cable packages at a good price
  • T-Mobile 5G Home Internet—low prices and high satisfaction ratings
  • Verizon 5G Home Internet—huge discounts for Verizon customers

AT&T and EarthLink are also available in much of downtown, but DSL internet is the primary service available from these providers. DSL is fairly slow and not worth your money if you can get cable or 5G internet instead.

Spectrum has the fastest internet in downtown LA. Its plans start at 300 Mbps—excellent for small- to mid-sized households—and its fastest package tops out at a formidable 1,000 Mbps. Being a cable plan, it doesn’t have symmetrical upload and download speeds. However, 1,000 Mbps gives you (and whoever else you’re sharing the Wi-Fi with) the power to stream, game, and download as much as you like without worrying about buffering or a dropped connection.

Verizon 5G Home Internet is the second-fastest Wi-Fi downtown. The Verizon 5G Home Plus plan gives you speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps. Keep in mind, though, that speeds can fluctuate, and you may experience a higher rate of outages since this service works over a fixed wireless, cellular-based connection.

AT&T and EarthLink offer fiber internet in some parts of LA, which delivers much faster speeds than cable. But these providers primarily have DSL internet in DTLA, which is much slower and may not be worth considering if you need a robust connection.

Verizon 5G Home Internet is the cheapest deal you can get in DTLA—especially if you’re a Verizon customer. It’s already a pretty sweet deal to get internet for just $50 per month with no extra fees or data caps. But it’s an even sweeter deal if you have a qualifying unlimited Verizon phone plan. Current Verizon phone service customers can get 50% off the 5G Home Internet plan.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is no slouch either when it comes to cheap internet. Like Verizon, T-Mobile’s 5G service costs $50 per month. It doesn’t include extra fees, contracts, data caps, or any other nonsense that’s usually tacked onto our internet bills to drive up the price. And you can get the plan for $30 per month if you also have a T-Mobile Magenta MAX family plan (two lines or more).

Spectrum’s basic internet plan is also a great option if you’re on a budget. Technically, it’s cheaper than Verizon and T-Mobile’s 5G plans, but (unlike those providers) Spectrum’s plans also come with extra fees. There’s a $5 per month charge just to use your Wi-Fi.

AT&T and EarthLink also have low-cost plans, but we aren’t as enthusiastic about those since they’re DSL internet. DSL tends to be fairly sluggish and is built on old telephone infrastructure. It seems to be going the way of the do-do bird these days while cable, fiber, and 5G providers offer faster plans for the same price or less.

What is the best internet provider in neighborhoods near downtown Los Angeles?

Spectrum, AT&T, and EarthLink are the main internet providers in most areas near downtown Los Angeles, including Boyle Heights, Westlake, and Koreatown.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet and Verizon 5G Home Internet are also available in these areas.

AT&T and EarthLink offer fiber internet in some parts of Boyle Heights—which is great news because fiber is incredibly fast and reliable. But for the most part, you can only find DSL from these providers in the neighborhoods surrounding downtown.

Here’s a refresher on the best internet in central Los Angeles:

  • Spectrum—fast speeds and wide availability
  • AT&T—peerless fiber (if you can find it) and humdrum DSL
  • T-Mobile 5G Home Internet—low prices and great customer ratings
  • Verizon 5G Home Internet—big discounts for Verizon phone customers
  • EarthLink—excellent customer service and fair prices
