Internet Access in Cambridge, Nebraska

Information on this page is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage reporting. Our data also includes direct reporting from providers to further validate and enhance the data. Plane and pricing data is hand-gathered by our data team. Locally, we've collected and verified 168 Internet deals in Cambridge since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 962 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

There is a strong amount of market choice between companies in Cambridge, but 1,000 locals are still without access to more than one provider. The consequence of this is that if they aren't satisfied by the quality of service, they are forced to use a poor quality wireless. Luckily, this issue isn't widespread in Cambridge — the average household has 3-4 Internet options.

Fixed wireless is the only broadband option in much of the Cambridge area, and the only alternative to less ideal network technologies such as satellite or LTE broadband. Our latest data shows that near one hundred percent of Cambridge has coverage for fixed wireless.

Pinpoint Communications is one of the top three providers in Cambridge by coverage area, available for 93 percent of residents. Pinpoint Communications is also a common option — while fixed wireless Internet isn't as well known as cable, it can be an equivalent service quality.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Cambridge

Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs in Cambridge use data caps on residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
