Internet Access in Chelmsford, Massachusetts

Data here is based on the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reporting. We leverage direct provider reports and other privatized data to further validate and enhance that information. Pricing and plan data is collected manually by our data team. To date, we've analyzed and verified 384 broadband plans in Chelmsford. Speed test data listed for Chelmsford is limited to the 18,766 speed tests analyzed in the listings below.

Coverage from the two biggest companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As you might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

2-3 Internet options per block may be a low level of competition, but it's enough to improve performance in neighborhoods with provider overlap. As you can see in the map below, availability can vary from block to block.

When we zoom in on Internet service choices, Cable, DSL, and even fiber are all present in Chelmsford. Fiber is the stronger option, and as of our last check has 95.70 percent coverage within Chelmsford. Widespread Fiber-Optic availability is to thank for maintaining a high average speed within Chelmsford — 252.23 Mbps, according to aggregate download speed test results — which is currently 26.11 percent greater than the state average.

Aside from the Internet options detailed above, Xfinity provides a third option for wired broadband in 97 percent of the Chelmsford area.

Data Cap Issues Around Chelmsford

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the common providers in Chelmsford use data caps on home broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view caps as a tactic to limit streaming. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is video streaming, which can use 1–7GB/hour.
