Internet Access in Muskegon, Michigan
FCC data shows two primary infrastructure options within Muskegon — coaxial cable (99.22% availability) and DSL (90.20% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet access is generally delivered from cable TV providers via copper coaxial television cables strung up on utility poles. DSL Internet, similarly, is delivered via twisted copper phone wires. Most Muskegon census blocks can access both cable service or DSL from competing telecom companies.
The average Muskegon customer has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. This is a strong level of competition. It tends to improve prices at a given address. This choice isn't distributed evenly, however. A surprising 7.98 of the local population still has only one or zero options for wired broadband service.
Since FCC data is currently only tallied up biannually and only published six or more months after, availability shown here may not be complete.
