Internet Access in Lancaster, Massachusetts

Data on this page is based on the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage filings. BroadbandNow leverages direct provider coverage reports and other privatized data to further validate and enhance that data. Plan and pricing information on this page is collected manually by our data science division. BroadbandNow has collected and verified 301 bundled Internet deals in Lancaster since 2014. Speed averages are drawn from 5,046 browser-based speed test records in the past 12 months.

Viasat Internet has the largest coverage area in Lancaster. They are available to near one hundred percent of Lancaster census blocks. HughesNet is also a common option, with coverage in close to one hundred percent of the area with Satellite service. The fastest plan listed by HughesNet for Lancaster is 25 megabits per second.

19.27 percent of households are limited to only one choice for wired broadband.

When we're looking at network tech installed within Lancaster, the most frequently available physical wire broadband Internet connection infrastructures are Cable (83.13 percent coverage) and DSL (79.77 percent coverage). TV companies are usually the source for cable Internet, because they can utilize their existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for Lancaster residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone companies usually offer DSL connections, which makes technical sense because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits digital data over phone lines. DSL underperforms when compared with all wired broadband infrastructures.

Outside of the Internet providers detailed above, XFINITY from Comcast is another option to consider. They have Internet in 83 percent of the Lancaster area.

  • There are 12 internet providers in Lancaster with 5 of those offering residential service
  • Lancaster is the 296th most connected city in Massachusetts ahead of Sterling and Clinton, but behind Harvard, Bolton, and Berlin.

Data Cap Issues Around Lancaster

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that many of the common providers in Lancaster currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since customers see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming services, which can consume anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
