Internet Access in Crofton, Maryland

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Crofton. HughesNet is also widely available.

Since most houses come pre-wired for one phone provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Crofton households have 2-3 wired Internet service providers to choose from (2.73 per census block). Regardless of other services with local coverage, DSL and cable broadband services usually provide the most agreeable price and data use packages for home use.

Xfinity provides a common second choice. They offer 98 percent local availability and a top speed of 1,000 Mbps. Aside from home broadband, there are 6 providers in city limits selling enterprise and smb subscriptions such as SD-WAN or custom fiber loops. The small business listings here include every provider with business services advertised on their site, although some providers offer both residential and business Internet.

The information listed here is sourced via FCC filings. Coverage data is cross-validated through privatized databases to create more accurate listings than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Data on pricing and speed of specific Internet plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year. We've catalogued 355 Crofton Internet plans since 2014. There are 35 Internet or bundled deals currently available in the area.

In summary, Crofton's broadband Internet infrastructure conforms with a pattern seen in many Maryland cities: strong availability of cable and DSL, with the catch that most houses are limited to only one option for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact that Broadband service providers were started pre-Internet as TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use pre-existing infrastructures to deliver their broadband bundles. Fiber Internet has been slowly growing as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 96.56 percent of the population is covered by fiber Internet reaching at least as far as a box near the property line.

Data Cap Issues in Crofton

Data from our research team suggests that some of the popular providers place a limit on streaming for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue because customers see caps as a tactic to discourage streaming. Providers insist data caps are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: video streaming, which can consume anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
