Internet Access in Stoughton, Massachusetts

Currently, there are 7 providers in the Stoughton area offering residential connections, and a total of 17 including specialized smb, enterprise, and mobile providers such as Xfinity. (Some might be "doubles", since many companies market residential and smb service under separate branches.)

When we're looking at network technology being used the city, we see that the most prevalent hardwired broadband connection types are Cable and Fiber, with 99.04% and 97.60% respectively. Cable is sold by cable television providers, who use already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Stoughton customers of cable providers like Xfinity overwhelmingly pick cable due to the combination of low pricing for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber is composed of newer, more modern fiber-optic cables, which are made of thousands of glass strands which send binary data as light. Thanks largely to fiber lines, Internet speeds within Stoughton are 39.86% above the Massachusetts average. Fiber results in better downloads and uptime, but may switch over to copper wires in the "last mile" near a subscriber. As a result, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" performance.

Viasat Internet is the most likely Internet provider in Stoughton. They are available to practically one hundred percent of Stoughton census blocks. HughesNet is the most common second choice, providing virtually one hundred percent of local addresses with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan in Stoughton is 25 Mbps.

Since most houses are only wired for one phone (DSL) provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the average home in Stoughton has 2-3 wired broadband service providers to choose from. 1.54% of Stoughton residents — 400 people — are limited to one or fewer choices. Regardless of alternative networks with local coverage, including LTE, cable and DSL Internet are likely to offer the most reasonable pricing and data policies for home use.

Broadband coverage insights here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are calculated from a mix of government data from the FCC and private data we collect from ISPs, or via unlisted third parties. Average statistics about speed averages is sourced via M-Labs. Our in-house researchers have manually collected price and service data on 353 broadband deals for Stoughton as of 2022.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Stoughton

Data from our researchers suggests that many of the top ISPs in Stoughton currently place a limit on data use for their home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming. Providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
