Internet Service in Buffalo, New York
From beautiful Allentown and Elmwood Village to the skyscrapers of downtown Buffalo, western New York’s cultural capital is full of great places to live and work. But whether you’re in sprawling South Buffalo or up near Duff’s and SUNY Buffalo, you’re likely to have the same options for internet service. SpectrumⓇ and Verizon dominate the market in the city, so most residents will end up choosing between them — though there are some other local options that you’re going to want to know about. Read on!
Fastest Internet Providers in Buffalo, New York
Verizon, Buffalo’s most prominent fiber internet provider, is among the fastest in the city. It offers download speeds of up to roughly 1 Gbps. Cable internet provider SpectrumⓇ offers equally fast internet, with download speeds up to 1 Gbps and wide availability across the city. Both Verizon and Spectrum offer a range of plans — from 100 Mbps to approximately 1 Gbps — to accommodate a variety of customer bandwidth needs and budgets. Both providers offer bundling options as well, often resulting in price breaks on services like mobile phones, whole-home Wi-Fi, and TV.
If neither fiber nor cable internet connections cover your area of Buffalo, 5G Home Internet from T-Mobile is a great alternative. While not as fast as Verizon fiber internet or Spectrum’s cable connection, T-Mobile 5G Home Internet delivers residential internet with download speeds between 33 and 182 Mbps, which is pretty fast for a completely wireless home internet option.
