Internet Access in Portland, Michigan

Portland features a total of 11 Internet service providers (ISPs) marketing residential service, and a total of 18 including specialized smb, enterprise, and mobile providers.

The information on this page is primarily sourced from FCC reports specific to the area, and is enhanced against private data sources to provide more accurate results than is available from government websites. Address availability data isn't available for all providers. Speeds and pricing data is generated thanks to our research division, who collect tens of thousands of data points each year. There are a total of 390 Internet plans in Portland since 2014, with 44 Internet or bundled deals currently marketed.

The average Portland household has 4-5 providers at their address. Only 18.99 percent of the Portland population have one or fewer options for residential broadband.

Taking a look now at network technology offered around the area, we see that the most prevalent wired broadband technology types are IPBB and Fixed Wireless (92.96 percent coverage) and Cable (74.46 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV companies are the main source for cable Internet, because they can utilize existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to Internet service. Portland-area subscribers to cable companies such as WOW! often pick it due to the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.)

According to the latest FCC filings and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Portland as measured by coverage area. The more common ISPs frequently cover the same addresses around Portland.

  • There are 15 internet providers in Portland with 11 of those offering residential service
  • Portland is the 204th most connected city in Michigan ahead of Sunfield and Eagle, but behind Ionia, Lyons, and Westphalia.

Portland is the 204th most connected city in Michigan ahead of Sunfield and Eagle, but behind Ionia, Lyons, and Westphalia.

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

Approximately 6,000 people in Ionia 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: 54% of people living in Portland 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 81% of Portland 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 Ionia County, approximately 25,000 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 Portland

Data collected by our researchers shows that top providers in Portland currently use data caps for their home broadband plans. Data caps are disliked since customers view them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
