Internet Access in Watertown, Massachusetts

Viasat Internet has the most availability in Watertown. HughesNet is also widely available.

Xfinity and Verizon High Speed Internet can also provide Internet service in Watertown, often competing for the same customers.

Cable and DSL are the two dominant broadband options in the Watertown area. They are fighting over customers at most addresses and competing on service quality. Cable network speed is overall stronger and more robust, but the overall speeds we've recorded with either network type are similar and which is "best" frequently varies from block to block based on the network infrastructure in a given area.

Residents of Watertown usually have two or more to choose from. That said, the amount of choice tends to rise and dip from neighborhood to neighborhood. View the interactive mapping tool below to explore how competition shifts in different parts of Watertown.

Watertown is the 88th most connected city in Massachusetts ahead of Belmont, but behind Allston, Newton, Brighton, and Newtonville.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 11,000 people in Middlesex County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber Availability: 7% of people living in Watertown have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 100% of Watertown residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Middlesex County, approximately 16,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Cap Issues in Watertown

Data from our research team suggests that top providers use data caps on residential Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue since users view them as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers explain they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Watertown

Amazing

I am not sure of everyone else's reviews here but RCN is the best by far. I have never had an issue with speed, service, customer service, or price. When my promotional period was over, I called and they extended it without me even asking. An amazing company in my opinion.
