Xfinity offers the largest coverage area for Brentwood residents. They are available to practically one hundred percent of Brentwood.

There are 2 providers in city limits offering enterprise-level subscriptions such as point-to-point connectivity or custom fiber loops. We list every provider with business packages on their website, but keep in mind that residential providers might offer business plans as well.

The data listed here comes from FCC filings, and is with private data sources and direct provider reporting to provide more granular listings than is available from the FCC directly. Data about pricing and speeds of individual Internet plans is sourced by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points annually. We've analyzed 309 Brentwood Internet plans from 2014–present, with 37 Internet or bundled deals currently on the market.

So, looking at the big picture, Brentwood's broadband infrastructure follows a common pattern in Maryland cities and towns: widespread availability of cable and DSL Internet service, but only two choices since the majority of houses or apartments are stuck with a single provider for setting up either service. This pattern has a logical cause. Broadband Internet providers are former television and landline phone corporations. So, they use these pre-existing copper wired networks to deliver their Internet service. Fiber network access is slowly growing as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 99.04 percent of Brentwood has access to fiber stretching as far as the property.
