In terms of network technology available around Saugus, we see that the most widespread wired Internet technology options are Fiber and Cable, with 11.10% and near one hundred percent 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.) Fiber technology is built on newer Fiber-optical cables made of thousands of glass strands that send digital data as light. Fiber network technology results in stronger speeds, but in some cases may switch to coaxial wires in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Consequently, not all fiber connections offer "gigabit" speeds.
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.

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.
