Dallas, TX provider recommendations

Spectrum Internet: Fast, dependable cable

Spectrum Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Affordable low-tier plans
pro No data caps on any plans
pro No contracts required
con
Cons
con No contracts required
con $5 monthly Wi-Fi fee

About 99% of people living in Dallas have access to Spectrum’s cable internet network, which luckily for us, is a pretty good thing. Spectrum offers some of the fastest cable speeds in the city for a reasonable price. You can choose data plans between 300Mbps and 1,000Mbps with Spectrum, but keep an eye out for the price hike after a year of service. Thankfully Spectrum doesn’t lock you into any contracts, so you can ditch out before your bill goes up.

Even with the price hike, it’ll be worth sticking around for some folks due to the bundle discounts with Spectrum’s cell phone and live TV service. You’re probably already paying for a cell phone plan and TV service anyways—might as well keep it under the same umbrella and save a few bucks.  Plus Spectrum’s TV service gets all the local sports channels, so you don’t miss out on any Cowboys games.

Best Spectrum internet plan for most people: Spectrum Internet Ultra, 500Mbps for $69.99/mo.

We recommend the 500Mbps plan for the average household of three to four people, but you could go for a cheaper plan if you’re living solo or with a partner in an apartment downtown.

AT&T Internet: Best fiber internet

AT&T Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Affordable fiber plans
pro No data caps for fiber
pro Included equipment costs
con
Cons
con Data caps with non-fiber plans
con Not much fiber availability

Not as many households in Dallas get fiber internet compared to cable internet, but for those who do get AT&T’s fiber service, we say go for it. With fiber internet, you get symmetrical download and upload speeds ranging from 1,000Mbps to a whopping 5,000Mbps—not that you need multi-gig speeds for most things. You get unlimited data and don’t have to pay for equipment costs, making AT&T a solid deal.

AT&T fiber internet is surprisingly affordable on its own, costing $80 a month for gigabit speeds. But you can save some money by bundling your cell phone plan and TV service. You save about $20 a month by keeping everything under the AT&T umbrella.

Best AT&T internet plan for most people: AT&T Internet 1000, 1,000Mbps for $80/mo.

Gigabit speeds serve most medium-to-big households quite well. The symmetrical speeds are perfect for working from home, livestreaming, and more.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet: Ideal for cable cutters

T-Mobile Internet pros and cons

pro
Pros
pro Straightforward pricing
pro Easy installation
pro Low cost, no contract, and no extra fees
con
Cons
con Good-but-not-great speeds
con Variable speed and reliability

If you can’t get a reliable connection with Spectrum or AT&T in your corner of Dallas, T-Mobile 5G Home Internet makes a lot of sense as an alternative. You don’t need any fiber or cable connections set up at your house–all you need to do is sign up for the plan, which comes with an easy-to-install 5G Gateway router. You literally just plug that in and you have a Wi-Fi connection in your house within a few minutes.

Internet speeds max out at around 245Mbps with 5G home internet, which should work great for smaller households, but might not be enough if you’ve got a big family or a lot of roommates.

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

T-Mobile’s 5G internet plan costs $50 a month—but you take up to $20 a month off that price if you sign up for a qualifying T-Mobile cell phone plan along with it.
