Internet Access in West Roxbury, Massachusetts

Information on BroadbandNow is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual coverage filings. Our data also includes direct reporting from providers and other privatized data to enhance that information. Plan, pricing, and other information is aggregated by our data team. Locally, we've aggregated 456 broadband plans in West Roxbury since 2014. Speed averages are drawn from 6,924 speed test records in the past 12 months.

So far as coverage options, the average household in West Roxbury will have 3-4 providers serving their address. Still, 1.12 percent of the West Roxbury population are stuck with one option for residential Internet.

Taking a look at network technologies available across West Roxbury, we see that the most frequently available hardwired Internet tech infrastructures are Cable (98.87 percent coverage) and Fiber (96.69 percent coverage). Television corporations are where customers look for cable Internet service, since they can leverage existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for West Roxbury residents because of the strong mix of speed and value. Fiber is composed of newer Fiber-optical cables, which are made of densely packed glass strands which transmit Internet data using light. Fiber offers stronger download rates and uptime, but sometimes switch over to copper cables in the "last mile" near subscribers. Copper-based last mile connections hamper performance, but are still usually a grade higher than cable/DSL.

Viasat Internet has the widest availability in West Roxbury. practically one hundred percent of West Roxbury census blocks can receive access to them. HughesNet is also a common option, with coverage in near one hundred percent of local addresses with predominantly Satellite broadband service. The fastest plan we've found for HughesNet in West Roxbury is 25 Mbps.

Besides the Internet providers listed above, XFINITY from Comcast provides a third option for Internet in 98 percent of the West Roxbury area.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around West Roxbury

Data collected by our market research team suggests that some of the common providers in West Roxbury use data caps for their residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since customers view them as a strategy to stop "cord cutting", while providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in West Roxbury

Still the best customer service!

I choose RCN because of the customer service. The speed and technology are good, not the best but the customer service is 10 times better. There will always be an issue with internet and cable but customer service and great techs are worth their weight in gold.
