Internet Access in Brighton, Massachusetts

Currently, there are 10 Internet service providers in Brighton with home service. Including business ISPs, there are 26 Internet providers overall, such as Verizon Business and TPx Communications.

Taking a look at network technology in use in the Brighton area, the most frequently available physical wire broadband Internet tech infrastructures are Cable (98.90 percent coverage) and DSL (98.98 percent coverage). TV companies are the main source for cable home Internet service, since they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for Brighton residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. DSL is delivered via twisted copper telephone wires up on utility poles by corporations such as Verizon High Speed Internet that historically provided phone service. The twisted and bundled copper makeup of phone lines outputs slightly less bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and fiber.

The information listed here comes via FCC coverage reports. Coverage data is cross-validated with private data sources to create more accurate results than is available from government websites. Data about speeds and pricing of individual Internet plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans every year. We've gathered 563 Brighton Internet plans from 2014–present, with 50 Internet plans currently marketed.

The average home in Brighton has 3 companies at their location. Only 1.14 percent of Brighton residents have one choice for broadband.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Brighton in terms of coverage area. The more common providers frequently cover the same addresses in most blocks around Brighton.

Brighton is the 31st most connected city in Massachusetts ahead of Newtonville, Cambridge, and Watertown, but behind Brookline and Allston.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 6,000 people in Suffolk County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Approximately 99% of Brighton residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Suffolk County, approximately 13,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Internet Service for Educational Purposes in Brighton

Economic development reports routinely spot a strong correlation between web availability and performance in schooling. [1] Internet access is essentially essential as universities including Saint John's Seminary switch to web-based systems to share coursework. Looking at 27,050 speed tests reported in the past annum at addresses within two miles of Saint John's Seminary campus, performance averages are around 200.4 Mbps — considerably above the lowest speeds needed for streaming video and interfacing with cloud or communication platforms.

Data Caps and Video Streaming in Brighton

Data from our market researchers suggests that common providers use data caps for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue because users view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming video, which can use anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Brighton

Not always dependable

Of course, everyone experiences their service going out once in a while. And of course, you have to call customer service, too, every once in a while. Well, the internet is still inconsistent, but I still consistently have to call customer service. And that's how it "works."
