Overall, Milford's Internet market follows a common pattern in Massachusetts cities and towns: widespread coverage for cable and DSL Internet service, but limited choice since most houses are limited to one provider for setting up either Internet service. This pattern has a logical cause. Internet service providers are former TV and telephone companies. So, they use these already connected wired networks for delivering their broadband Internet bundles. Fiber Internet has been slowly growing as an alternative, and while some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 95.94 percent of the area is covered by fiber Internet stretching at least to the property. The local weighted average download performance is currently 26.67 percent higher than the Massachusetts average, accounting for all cities.
