Internet Access in Fort Fairfield, Maine

Data on this page is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual coverage reports. BroadbandNow also uses direct provider coverage reports to validate the information on a census block level. Plane and pricing data is hand-gathered by our research team. To date, we've analyzed 242 broadband plans for Fort Fairfield in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 40 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Viasat Internet is the most common provider for Fort Fairfield residents. The company is available to virtually one hundred percent of Fort Fairfield. HughesNet is also a common choice, providing practically one hundred percent of local addresses with predominantly Satellite broadband service. The fastest plan we've seen for HughesNet for Fort Fairfield is 25 megabits per second.

When we're looking at network technologies installed in Fort Fairfield, we see that the most common hardwired broadband Internet technology types are Cable (73.28 percent coverage) and Satellite (virtually one hundred percent coverage). Cable Internet is marketed by former cable television providers, using preexisting TV network connections. Local customers of cable ISPs like Spectrum usually select cable because of the combination of low prices for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.)

Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) provides a common second choice to the primary providers, serving Fort Fairfield with a maximum download speed of 100 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only way to get Internet access in Fort Fairfield. For example, fixed wireless outfits like Pioneer Wireless can offer 2 Mbps using wireless links.
