Internet Access in Linwood, Massachusetts

Linwood features a total of 4 Internet service providers (ISPs) with residential service. Including business Internet, that's a total of 9 companies overall,.

Taking a look now at network technology installed in the city, the most frequently available physical wire Internet tech types are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (close to one hundred percent coverage). Regular cable TV providers are the main source for cable Internet, seeing as they can utilize their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Local customers of cable providers like Spectrum often select it because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Phone companies usually offer DSL Internet service, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits data over telephone lines. The twisted copper makeup of telephone wires provides a lower bandwidth ceiling compared to newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.

The information listed here comes via FCC filings specific to the area, and is enhanced with private databases and direct provider reporting to provide more useful resources than is available from government websites. Data on pricing of current Internet plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans annually.

Spectrum is the most common on the whole. They have Internet coverage for close to one hundred percent of Linwood residents. Verizon High Speed Internet, in contrast, has registered coverage for approximately near one hundred percent of residents. The top download speed advertised for Spectrum reaches 940 Mbps, while Verizon High Speed Internet advertised up to 5 Mbps. As a rule of thumb, anything over 10 megabits per second will be enough for streaming lower-quality video on WiFi. However, it may become problematic for multiple users or high-bandwidth applications like Google Hangouts, cloud apps, and etc. Spectrum also provides business broadband.
