What is the best internet provider in Bedford-Stuyvesant?
Verizon is our best internet provider pick in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Offering both fiber and 5G internet, it has incredibly fast speeds, symmetrical upload and download speeds (with fiber), great prices, and unlimited data. There are no rental fees for a modem or router, and you don’t have to sign up for an annual contract.
Optimum is another great option. Like Verizon, Optimum has fiber internet and a variety of plans with fast speeds, low prices, and no data caps. Optimum’s starting prices are lower than Verizon’s, but you end up paying more in the long term because steep price hikes kick in after a year of service. That’s Optimum’s main drawback.
Verizon and Optimum are also available in nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods like Bushwick, Crown Heights, Clinton Hill, and Brownsville.
New Yorkers on a budget should go with Starry Internet or T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. Available mostly in apartment buildings, Starry has amazingly low prices and gets you solid speeds over a fixed wireless connection that works over a cell phone network. T-Mobile uses similar technology, giving you fast internet with no data caps and no extra fees for equipment or installation.
- Verizon—Multigigabit speeds and budget options
- Starry Internet—Low prices and solid speeds
- Optimum—Low starting prices on fiber connection
Spectrum is available in some parts of Bed-Stuy and other areas along Fulton Street in Brooklyn. The cable provider has fast speeds at a decent price—although the speeds aren’t quite as fast and the prices aren’t quite as good as what you get from Verizon. Still, you get a solid deal with (like the others) unlimited data and no annual contract.
