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.

Optimum is by far the fastest internet provider in Bed-Stuy with its 8 Gbps plan that hits speeds up to 8,000 Mbps. That plan isn’t widely available—so you might not be able to actually get it where you live. It’s also super expensive and about five to 10 times faster than what most people need. Verizon’s 2 Gig plan is similar, offering a massive amount of bandwidth that’s impractical for most users.

A standard gigabit internet plan is the way to go for most Brooklynites looking for excellent speeds. Verizon, Optimum, and Spectrum all have gigabit plans with wide availability in Bed-Stuy at relatively affordable prices. A gigabit plan gives you ample bandwidth to support a large number of Wi-Fi users (think up to 10) for streaming, gaming, Zooming, and pretty much anything else.

Starry Internet is the cheapest internet you can get in Bed-Stuy. Starry offers respectable speeds at a killer price for tenants in apartment buildings. The speeds for Starry aren’t always consistent—it works over a cellular signal, so the service can experience dips throughout the day due to factors like network congestion. But you can’t beat the price; there really isn’t anything cheaper in the city.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is another great option if you want to save money. Like Starry, it gives you an internet connection over a fixed wireless signal from a cell phone network. You get unlimited data, you don’t need to sign a contract, and there are no fees for installation or equipment. Plus, you can get $20 off your monthly bill if you have T-Mobile’s Magenta MAX family phone plan.

Other than those options, you can also get bottom-tier plans from major providers Verizon, Optimum, and Spectrum. You might not get as many perks this way—and Optimum’s price hikes are very steep after one year of service—but any of these providers offer you unlimited data and contract-free plans.
