Internet Access in Hartford, Connecticut

Government-sourced Form 477 data is the backbone for the Hartford-area Internet access data highlighted here. We've crunched 10,879 rows of FCC data on Internet access in Hartford. Speed analysis is calculated based on 24,352 M-Labs speed tests aggregated in a 12 month period.

DSL and cable are the dominant broadband network options around the Hartford area. They are fighting for the same potential customers at many addresses and generally competing on service quality. Coaxial cable speed is generally stronger and more consistent, but big-picture performance metrics seen with either network system are similar and which is "best" frequently varies from block to block based on the network quality in a given area. Hartford speed test records suggest that Internet performance in the area is above-average, coming in 30.94 percent higher than the state average when it comes to citywide download speeds.

2 Internet choices per block is a low amount of broadband competition, but it's sufficient to drive price and speed competition in neighborhoods where providers overlap. Choice can vary from block to block, as illustrated in the interactive map below.

Xfinity as well as Frontier Communications can also provide Internet service in Hartford, often competing for the same customers.

Viasat Internet is the most frequently available provider on the whole. They have Internet coverage for close to one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet is available to close to close to one hundred percent of local residents. The fastest speed recorded for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps. HughesNet advertised packages as high as 25 Mbps. Any speed over 10 megabits per second is sufficient for streaming lower-quality video over WiFi, but is likely to become problematic for multiple users or modern services like Google Hangouts, cloud apps, and etc. Explore our coverage maps on this page to see Internet options at the census block level.
