Taking a look now at network tech offered in the West Haven area, we see that the most frequently available physical wire Internet connection types are Cable and DSL and Fiber, with near one hundred percent and close to one hundred percent respectively. TV corporations are the main source for cable Internet, thanks to the fact that they can utilize their pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for local residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range.

The information listed here comes via FCC filings specific to West Haven, and is confirmed using privatized databases and direct provider reporting to output more detailed resources than is available from government websites. Information on speeds and pricing of listed Internet plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.

According to the latest FCC reports, 3.74 percent of West Haven households have only one option for wired Internet.

Frontier Communications is the most widespread Internet option on the whole. They offer coverage for close to one hundred percent of West Haven residents. Viasat Internet has registered coverage to approximately near one hundred percent of residents. We've seen download speeds in excess of 25 Mbps for both providers. This speed is sufficient to meet the minimum for "broadband" and is sufficient for video streaming. Frontier Communications also offers widespread business Internet.
