Internet Access in Stratford, Connecticut

Stratford offers 7 residential Internet providers, and 22 when including business and mobile. Consumers have access to 7 choices for wired Internet like cable or DSL.

2 providers per block isn't a strong level of choice compared to other areas, but it's enough to improve performance and pricing in blocks where providers overlap. Choice often varies from block to block, as illustrated in the map below.

Coverage from the most common companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in general, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common in Stratford.

The broadband plans listed here are collected by hand by our research team. We have collected 504 packages in the area around Stratford since 2014.

To summarize, Stratford's Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Connecticut towns and cities: strong coverage of bundled cable and DSL, with the caveat that most houses are limited to one provider for subscribing to either Internet service. This pattern results from the fact that most Broadband Internet outfits started as cable TV and landline phone corporations, and use conveniently pre-built networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet services. Owing to market competition between providers around Stratford, the local weighted average download rate is currently 8.89 percent higher than the Connecticut average across all cities. See the speed test results below to see how Internet providers compare over time.
