The broadband coverage data on this page is sourced from FCC filings. Data is confirmed with privatized databases and direct provider reporting to create more detailed listings than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Data about pricing and speed of individual broadband plans is sourced by our research and analysis team, who gather tens of thousands of data points annually. There are 136 plans in Berkshire since 2014, with 26 Internet or bundled plans currently marketed in the area.

Taking a look at network technology in use across Berkshire, the most prevalent hardwired Internet technology options are Cable (99.45 percent coverage) and 5G Internet (71.43 percent coverage). Cable connections are sold by traditional television companies, using their preexisting coaxial cable networks. [1] Berkshire subscribers to cable companies such as Spectrum generally select cable because of the combination of low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.)
