Information on BroadbandNow is calculated based on the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings. BroadbandNow also uses direct provider reports and other privatized data to further validate that data. Plan and pricing information is aggregated manually by our market research team. To date, we've collected and verified 305 broadband plans in and near Holland since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 12 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Taking a look now at network technologies available around Holland, the most widespread hardwired broadband connection options are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (92.26 percent coverage). TV providers are where customers look for cable Internet service, since they can leverage pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for Holland residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL Internet, which makes technical sense because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends data over telephone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone lines allows for slightly less bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and significantly less than fiber.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Holland

Data collected by our market researchers shows that many of the common providers currently use data caps for their home broadband packages.
