The data on this page comes via FCC reports specific to the area. Data is validated against privatized databases to create more accurate listings than is available from the FCC directly. Address-level analysis is currently limited to select telecom companies. Data on speed and pricing of individual broadband plans is generated by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points annually.

In terms of coverage options, the average location in Waterford will have 7 providers at their location. Only 3.01 percent of the Waterford population are stuck with one option for residential Internet.

When we're looking at network technologies offered within Waterford, we see that the most widespread physical wire broadband technology types are IPBB and Fixed Wireless (96.85 percent coverage) and Cable (89.51 percent coverage). Cable internet connections are marketed by traditional residential television providers, who use their preexisting coaxial cable networks. Waterford-area customers of cable providers like Spectrum usually pick cable because of the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.)

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, AT&T Internet also serves Waterford with a recorded top speed of 25 Mbps. Plans from companies like UnWired Broadband can deliver as much as 30 Mbps using wireless hardware.
