Most Popular Residential Internet Providers in Andover, New Hampshire
Internet Access in Andover, New Hampshire
Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) has the strongest coverage footprint in Andover. HughesNet is also widely available.
2-3 providers for each address is a low level of choice, but it's enough to reduce pricing in Andover communities where providers overlap. Choice can vary from block to block.
In terms of Internet network options, cable or fiber are going to be the strongest network type for most residents. Fiber-Optic infrastructure is in many cases built on top of former DSL infrastructure in the area. Fiber leverages future-proofed optical-fiber cables to transmit digital data. Upstream rates benefit the most when using a fiber optics connection. Upstream speeds can often be the same as the download speed on fiber plans. (Compare with cable or DSL, which have uploads limited to as much as 1/10 of the downstream rate.)
TDS Telecom and XFINITY from Comcast also offer coverage in Andover, often competing for the same customers.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Andover
Data from our market researchers suggests that top providers use data caps on residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a tactic for limiting streaming. Providers explain they are a necessary tool for managing network traffic. Either way, the issue is video streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
