Internet Access in Fallston, Maryland

Consumers have access to 19 Internet service providers (ISPs) operating in Fallston. 4 of these are mobile LTE companies.

Remember that since FCC coverage data is only collected twice a year and only made public six or more months after that, availability shown here may not be complete.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Fallston's most widely available wired Internet options.

Competition between broadband providers is decent in general, and the average Fallston resident is served by 3-4 ISPs. (3.64 in each census block, to be exact.)

So, looking at the big picture, Fallston's Internet situation follows a similar pattern to other Maryland cities: strong coverage of bundled cable and DSL, with the catch that most residences are stuck with a single provider for either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband providers used to be cable television and phone companies, and use conveniently pre-built wired networks on telephone poles for delivering Internet services. Fiber service has been expanding as a third option. While not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" connections, practically one hundred percent of the Fallston area is covered by fiber Internet that reaches as far as the block. Owing to market competition between providers in Fallston, the local average download speed is currently 38.24 percent ahead of the state average, accounting for all cities. Review the speed test data below for insights on how providers add up long term.
