Broadband coverage and competition between providers in the Greenbush area is overall low. 72.84 percent of local residents are limited to one (or fewer) choices forbroadband Internet service. So far as connectivity, Greenbush ranks at 373rd out of 424 cities in Maine.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the main Internet choices in Greenbush.

DSL providers like Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) deliver broadband service over telephone wires, which explains why DSL is sold through companies that bundle Internet access with landline phone plans. DSL network technology is available to 99.49 percent of the area. The twisted copper wires carrying DSL Internet don't have as much bandwidth as fiber/cable infrastructure. The result: reduced speed and dependability. This is partly why average speeds within Greenbush perform under Maine, coming in at 50.42 Mbps, as opposed to the 62.49 Mbps average data rate in Maine overall.

Since FCC data is only collected twice annually and only published 6+ months later, providers listed in the results may not include the most recent upgrades or regional changes.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) also serves the area with DSL service for 94 percent of census blocks and a maximum speed of 100 Mbps.
