Pontiac is the 60th most connected city in Michigan ahead of West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Keego Harbor, and Waterford, but behind Auburn Hills.

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

Approximately 5,000 people in Oakland 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.

Approximately 97% of Pontiac 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 Oakland County, approximately 6,000 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 Caps in Pontiac

Internet providers have decided to add data limits onto consumer broadband packages recently. This trend is certainly true for the Pontiac market, with ISPs such as Xfinity adding plans with data caps. This might not really matter for the majority of customers, but may be an issue for those who share their WiFi with family or friends or techies who download a large amount of high-def content. Data caps with cable packages are usually about 1 Terabyte. This is an issue for fewer than one percent of Internet users. Potential Xfinity customers should verify data caps when signing up.
