Internet Access in Rowley, Massachusetts

Information on this page is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reports. Our data also includes direct provider reports to further validate and enhance the information. Pricing and plan data is hand-gathered manually through our market research team. BroadbandNow has found and verified 337 broadband deals in Rowley since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 950 records as of 2022. 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 offered Rowley, we see that the most frequently available hardwired broadband technology options are Cable (99.25 percent coverage) and Fiber (virtually one hundred percent coverage). Traditional cable TV companies are usually the source for cable Internet, since they can utilize pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Cable can often make sense for Rowley residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Fiber is composed of more modern Fiber-optical lines, which are made of densely packed glass strands that can transmit digital data as light. Fiber offers better speeds and uptime, but may switch over to older copper wires in the "last mile" near subscribers. Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" speeds.

Viasat Internet has the widest availability in Rowley. The company is accessible for virtually one hundred percent of Rowley census blocks. HughesNet is the most likely second choice in the area, with coverage in near one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest package for Rowley is 25 Mbps.

Verizon Fios is a common alternative to the primary providers, serving Rowley with a maximum speed of 950 Mbps. There are 4 providers in city limits selling specialized enterprise and business/smb services like SD-WAN and MPLS. The small business listings on this page include every provider with business packages online, but keep in mind that home providers often offer business plans as well.

On the whole, competition between providers in Rowley isn't high (2.87 providers available in the average census block). 2 companies for each address isn't a lot, but it's sufficient to drive competition on price that is good for consumers in well-wired neighborhoods.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Rowley

Data collected by our research team suggests that popular ISPs in Rowley use data caps on home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because consumers see them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming services, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
