Internet Access in Sherborn, Massachusetts

Data here is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings. We leverage direct reporting from providers to further validate that data. Pricing and plan data is hand-gathered by our data science team. Locally, we've found and verified 319 broadband plans in Sherborn. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 76 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.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

Xfinity and Verizon Fios can also provide Internet service in Sherborn, with significant shared coverage areas in some parts of town.

When you're considering Internet network types, cable or fiber are almost always the better option for most of Sherborn. Fiber is in many cases built on top of former DSL infrastructure in the area. Fiber service utilizes future-proofed optical-fiber cables to transmit data. Upstream rates benefit the most for residents using a fiber connection, and will usually match the downstream rates, unlike non-fiber Internet plans. (Compare with cable, which have uploads downgraded by as much as 1/10 of the download speed.)

Overall, the choice between Internet providers in Sherborn isn't high (2.39 companies registered per census block). 2-3 companies for each resident isn't much, yet it's sufficient to drive competition on price and service quality, which is good for consumer living in better connected parts of the city.

Data Cap Issues in Sherborn

Data collected by our market researchers shows that some of the common ISPs currently use data caps on residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers view caps as a strategy to stop streaming services. Providers maintain they are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which easily uses 1–7GB/hr.
