Internet Access in Danbury, Connecticut

There are 6 providers in the Danbury area offering residential service, and a total of 23 including smb, enterprise, and mobile providers such as Crown Castle Fiber. (Take note that some may be "double entries", since many providers advertise residential and business services separately.)

Taking a look now at network technology available around the area, we see that the most prevalent hardwired broadband Internet connection types are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and DSL and Fiber (98.43 percent coverage). Cable Internet is marketed by former television companies, leveraging already-built coaxial cable networks. Local subscribers to cable Internet service providers such as Xfinity usually pick it thanks to the combination of low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.)

The information on this page is primarily sourced via provider coverage reports specific to Danbury. Data is confirmed with privatized databases to output more detailed resources than is available from government websites. Information about pricing and speeds of current Internet plans is generated by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points every year.

7.08 percent of Danbury residents are limited to only one option for wired broadband.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option on the whole. They offer coverage reaching practically one hundred percent of Danbury residents. HughesNet, in contrast, has coverage to approximately practically one hundred percent of residents. The top download speed recorded for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps. HughesNet advertised packages up to 25 Mbps. Anything above 10 megabits per second will be enough for streaming standard definition videos to devices on WiFi, but becomes problematic for multiple users or modern services such as Google Hangouts and multiplayer gaming. See the availability maps below to see how Internet options compare on a granular level in Danbury.
