Our top 3 ISP choices in New Braunfels, TX

AT&T fiber is—by far—our favorite ISP in New Braunfels. Other top options include Spectrum cable service and T-Mobile 5G home internet.

#1: AT&T fiber internet

AT&T’s fiber service is one of the best internet services you can get anywhere, and New Braunfels is no exception. The provider offers excellent coverage in New Braunfels (and the whole greater San Antonio area). AT&T’s speeds are among the fastest available—up to 5,000 Mbps. It also offers excellent pricing on “slower” 1 Gbps and 300 Mbps plans.

#2: Spectrum internet

If AT&T fiber isn’t available at your home, Spectrum is a solid alternative. Technically, it offers better coverage, with almost 90% of New Braunfels in the service area. Compared to AT&T, Spectrum is a bit slower and offers less overall value, but it’s still a strong choice for speedy internet service.

#3: T-Mobile internet

Our third pick for internet in New Braunfels is actually T-Mobile. The provider’s 5G home internet is available to 92% of residents, and it’s actually quite good. If you have T-Mobile for your phone service, it’s an even better deal.

All internet providers in New Braunfels

Residents of New Braunfels have a handful of other options for internet if none of our top picks suit your needs. The main two are Valley Telecom and Guadalupe Valley Electric, both of which are smaller regional providers. They offer reasonable rates for fiber internet but don’t really stack up well with AT&T or Spectrum.

You can also opt for satellite internet from any of the three main providers: HughesNet, Viasat, and Starlink. Frankly, there’s not much reason to choose satellite internet over a wired option or even T-Mobile. These providers, as a rule, are always either very slow or very expensive (sometimes both!), so we only really advise using them if you have nothing else available.

Fastest internet providers in New Braunfels

AT&T is, by far, the fastest provider in New Braunfels. With plans up to 5,000 Mbps, it’s hard to ask for more in terms of speed. Spectrum and GVEC offer speeds up to 1,000 Mbps, which should also be plenty for nearly anything you want to do.

How much speed do you need?

When choosing an internet plan, you want to keep all of your activities running smoothly without paying extra for speeds you don't need. At the bare minimum, you need 25 Mbps to do light browsing on one or two devices. Most households with multiple people and multiple devices will want to look for speeds in the 100–500 Mbps range. Learn how much speed your household needs in our guide to internet speed.

Cheapest internet providers in New Braunfels

If you have a T-Mobile cell phone plan, you may be able to get a discounted rate on T-Mobile home internet—in this case, it’s likely to be the cheapest provider in New Braunfels. Beyond that, Spectrum offers some very low-cost plans that can help you get online for less.

Internet options in nearby cities

Internet providers

Native Texan moving back home, but not familiar with the ISPs in San Antonio. Looks like my options are AT&T Fiber, Spectrum Cable or Astound (Grande) Cable. I know that fiber is usually better and have had Fios Fiber in Philly and NYC but AT&T is actually more expensive than Fios has been on the east coast and they have lower reliability scores.

Between those three, which is the most reliable for consistent high speeds and low outages in the SA area?

Most helpful response

AT&T fiber is really good and they have promos. Spectrum is a pain to deal with customer service. Grande is actually quite stable and the smaller guy but as such they have limited service, people available, offices...etc

What would y'all say is the fastest internet provider?

I'm not really concerned with price, just with the highest speeds available. I am going to be permanently working from home so need something that's fast and reliable i.e. isn't always going down. So what would be y'all's pick for internet provider?

Most helpful response

Google Fiber

AT&T or Spectrum?

I'll be needing to choose a new internet plan soon (AT&T or Spectrum only), and I want to hear your opinions! Which provider has better deals for internet, and which provider is more reliable/has better service? Thanks in advance!

(For context, I would need an internet speed that's good for 1 person who works from home and uses the internet a lot- no gaming though. My current AT&T plan barely scrapes 15mbps.)

Most helpful response

ATT fiber is fantastic if you can get it. We had it for years before moving and had zero issues that weren't caused by SWMD or some other factor breaking the fiber lines. Speeds were always consistent and no data cap. That's good for me and my family as I work from home and my family loves to stream.

Now we have Spectrum and while the 400 down is OK the 20 up kills my productivity. Our only other option is ATT DSL which I would never use.
