Best Internet Providers in New Bedford, MA

New Bedford’s top internet provider is Xfinity. This vendor is easily the area’s best because it offers fiber-optic download speeds reaching 6 Gbps, which is a really remarkable rate. Beyond those incredible speeds, fiber internet is excellent for streamers and gamers in particular since it sends greater amounts of data over longer distances than DSL or cable.

Xfinity’s standalone internet plans cost between $39.99 per month and $299.95 per month. There are also a large number of service bundles for sale, priced at $54.99 per month and up. To top it all off, Xfinity’s cable internet service is available in 97.7 percent of New Bedford.

As an alternative, there’s Verizon, which covers 99.5 percent of the area. However, you’ll be sacrificing speed, as Verizon relies on a DSL connection that can only hit 15 Mbps.
