Internet Access in Westland, Michigan

The average house in Westland is serviceable by 3-4 Internet Service Providers, or "ISPs." In context, this is a lot of choice in comparison to similar-sized cities in Michigan. Robust competition often results in lower regional pricing.

Metronet offers the widest availability for Westland residents. The provider is available to near one hundred percent of Westland. Viasat Internet is the most likely followup option, serving near one hundred percent of local addresses with predominantly Satellite Internet service. Viasat's fastest plan for Westland is 100 Mbps.

Looking at network technologies offered within the city, we see that the most widespread hardwired Internet technology infrastructures are IPBB and Fiber (98.68 percent coverage) and Cable (98.04 percent coverage). Cable connections are sold by television operators, leveraging their already-built coaxial cable networks. Westland customers of cable ISPs like Xfinity generally select it because of the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.)

The data listed here comes from FCC filings. Coverage data is confirmed through privatized data sources to create more useful listings than governmental websites. Speed and pricing data is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans every year.

Aside from the Internet options listed above, HughesNet provides a third choice for Internet in near one hundred percent of Westland. Wireless companies like Verizon are worth looking at, but the main wired providers are usually a better deal so far as performance and price.
