Brooklyn, NY provider recommendations

Verizon: Best fiber option

Verizon Fios Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Gigabit fiber connection
pro Fast, symmetrical speeds
pro No data caps
con
Cons
con High prices for high speeds

Verizon Fios internet is the best fiber option in Brooklyn. It gets you up to a gigabit of symmetrical speeds. It also has no data caps, so you don’t have to be conservative in your internet use. Granted, some Verizon Fios plans are expensive (unlike a slice from your favorite pizza cart), and you'll pay close to $100 a month if you want the fastest options. But you can get a $25 monthly discount on your internet when you bundle it with a qualifying Verizon mobile plan.

And if you don’t need the speediness of fiber, you can look into Verizon 5G internet. This budget-friendly option uses Verizon’s 5G network to bring internet to cable cutters and smaller households.

Best Verizon Fios internet plan for most people: 500 Mbps, 500Mbps for $89.99/mo.

Whether you live in a loft in Flatbush or a single-family home in Brooklyn Heights, 500Mbps should be more than enough for most household internet needs, especially since this plan comes with no data caps. The 500Mbps plan more than covers working from home, 4K streaming, gaming, and a starter smart home or home security setup.

Spectrum: Dependable cable connectivity

Spectrum Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Cable connection
pro Über-fast gigabit speeds
pro No annual contracts
con
Cons
con Price hikes after first year
con Not available everywhere in Brooklyn

If fiber hasn't come to your street yet, or if you want something cheaper, Spectrum internet could be the answer. This cable provider offers fast speeds at a lower price than Verizon Fios. Like Verizon, it also doesn’t require annual contracts, so if you’re on a shorter lease, you don’t have to worry about service cancellation fees when you move on. Just be aware that with Spectrum, you’ll see a price hike after a year. Also, Spectrum internet may not be available at your address—the service skips over a surprising number of Brooklyn zip codes.

Best Spectrum internet plan for most people: Internet Ultra, 500Mbps for $49.99/mo.

Like Verizon Fios, the Spectrum 500 Mbps plan covers typical occupational and recreational internet use with speed to spare. As a bonus, it’s also $20 cheaper than Verizon Fios’s comparable plan.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet: Best alternative option

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Wireless setup with 5G network
pro Guaranteed price
pro No data caps or annual contracts
con
Cons
con Not as fast as other providers
con One plan only

If you don’t live a hyper-connected lifestyle, go for T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. This wireless network runs through T-Mobile’s awesome 5G cellular network, saving you the pain of a complicated installation. It’s also available for just $50 each month. There are no data caps (so you can use your internet as frequently as you want) and no annual contracts (so you can move apartments anytime you need). And while the service is slower than its competitors, the average internet user won’t notice a difference.

Best T-Mobile Home Internet plan for most people: $50 home internet, 72–245Mbps for $50.00/mo.

Max speeds of 245Mbps may not sound like much, but these speeds work well for the average household. T-Mobile 5G comfortably accommodates streaming, gaming, and working from home—just about anything except regularly downloading or uploading gigantic media files. (If that sounds like you, T-Mobile 5G isn't your best option, and you should fuhgeddaboudit.)
