Internet Access in Saugus, Massachusetts

Viasat Internet has the strongest coverage footprint in Saugus. HughesNet is also commonly available.

The information on this page comes from FCC filings, and is using private data sources and direct provider reporting to provide more accurate listings than is available from the FCC directly. Address-level information isn't always available. Speed and pricing data is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans every year.

XFINITY from Comcast provides an alternative to the primary providers, serving Saugus with a maximum speed of 987 Mbps. There are 5 providers in Saugus offering enterprise-level products and services like point-to-point connectivity and MPLS. We list all providers with explicit business plans on their site, although some offer both residential and business broadband.

In terms of network technology available around Saugus, we see that the most widespread wired Internet technology options are Cable and DSL, with near one hundred percent and 98.60% respectively. Television corporations are the main source for cable Internet, since they can utilize pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Saugus customers of cable ISPs such as XFINITY from Comcast usually pick it thanks to the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.) Phone companies usually offer DSL Internet, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends data packets over phone lines. DSL is the slowest of all other major Internet services.

Overall, the competition between providers in Saugus isn't high (2.09 companies registered in the average census block). It isn't a lot, but it's sufficient to drive competition on price that benefits those who live in well-wired parts of the city.

  • There are 14 internet providers in Saugus with 5 of those offering residential service
  • Saugus is the 191st most connected city in Massachusetts behind Wakefield, Lynn, Malden, Melrose, and Revere.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Saugus

Data collected by our market research team shows that popular ISPs in the area use data caps on home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since users see caps as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
