Internet Access in Charlestown, New Hampshire

Data shown on this page is based on the FCC's bi-annual coverage reports. Our data also includes direct provider coverage reports to further validate and enhance the data. Plan, pricing, and other data on BroadbandNow is aggregated by our data division. Locally, we've aggregated 336 broadband plans for Charlestown since founding in 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,026 records as of 2022. 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.

Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) is another common broadband option in Charlestown. They offer DSL connections with coverage in 98 percent of the area.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the main Internet choices in Charlestown.

The average Charlestown home has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. Competition is desireable. It means most residents have at least two ISPs competing so far as prices. This high level of competition isn't distributed evenly, though. A surprising 8.96 of the local population still has only one or fewer choices for wired broadband Internet service.

To summarize, Charlestown's Internet situation follows a similar pattern to other US cities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, but limited options since a majority of residences are stuck with a single provider for setting up either service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Internet providers are former cable television and telephone corporations, and use already connected wired networks on telephone poles for delivering broadband Internet service.
