Lubbock, TX provider recommendations

AT&T Internet: Best internet for most people

AT&T Internet: Best internet for most people

con
Cons
con Not available in every location

If you want the best internet in Lubbock, period, then AT&T is the way to go. It runs a reliable, high-speed fiber network in the city that is simply better than cable or DSL internet alternatives. With AT&T Fiber, you don’t just get fast download speeds but also fast upload speeds, which are important for activities like Zooming into a work meeting.

AT&T’s prices are fair, it doesn’t have data caps, and it doesn't require you to sign a contract. The only real downside is that you can’t get it everywhere. There are many parts of Lubbock that aren’t on AT&T’s fiber network yet.

Best AT&T Fiber internet plan for most people: AT&T Internet 500, 500Mbps for $65.00/mo.

500Mbps is more than enough speed for most small to medium-sized households. You can have one person streaming 4K video, one gaming online, and another on a conference call, and still have bandwidth to spare. For $65 a month, it’s a steal.

Optimum: Best affordable cable internet plans

Pros
pro Up to gigabit download speeds
pro No data caps or contracts
pro TV, internet, and mobile bundles
con
Cons
con No fiber plans

If you can’t get AT&T internet or you want to bundle your internet service with a mobile or TV plan, then check out Optimum. While it doesn’t offer any fiber plans, Optimum can still get you very fast download speeds with its cable network

Plus, Optimum has great availability throughout Northwest Texas and some of the best starting prices of any company. You can bring those prices even lower if you are interested in bundling multiple services together.

Best Optimum plan for most people: Optimum 300, 300Mbps for $40.00/mo.

While 300Mbps isn’t that fast, it’s plenty of speed for many smaller households or those who just use the internet for streaming and the occasional online game. At $40 a month, this plan is pretty much unbeatable for those who want high-speed internet on a budget.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet: Ideal for smaller households

pro
Pros
pro Simple prices and policies
pro Free self-installation
pro Low prices and no contracts
con
Cons
con Slower than cable or fiber internet services
con Speed and reliability may vary

If you live outside of downtown, you may find your internet choices to be limited in Lubbock. Luckily, there’s T-Mobile 5G Home Internet, which offers very affordable and relatively fast internet in places where great wired internet options are limited.

With T-Mobile’s 5G internet service you’ll get up to 245Mbps speeds, no data caps, no contracts, and no hidden fees. At $50 a month, it’s a bit pricier than Optimum’s cheapest plan, but it’s still a great deal for what you get.

Best T-Mobile 5G Home Internet plan for most people: $50 Home Internet, 72–245Mbps for $50.00/mo.

There’s only one plan from T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. But it’s a good one. For $50 a month, you get 72 to 245Mbps internet speeds, and you don’t have to deal with a contract, hidden fees, or annoying installation scheduling. You can even bring your equipment and plan with you if you move to a new place where T-Mobile 5G is available.
