Internet Access in North Stratford, New Hampshire

Information on BroadbandNow is based on the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage reporting. BroadbandNow also uses direct reporting from providers and other private data to further validate that data. Plan and pricing information is collected by our research division. We've analyzed and verified 93 broadband deals in North Stratford in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 184 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.

Taking a look at network technologies in use within North Stratford, the most prevalent hardwired Internet technology infrastructures are Satellite (near one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (90.59 percent coverage). Telephone companies are the main source for DSL connections, which makes technical sense because DSL transmits Internet data over telephone wires. As copper wires go, the twisted copper makeup seen in telephone lines provides lower performance than newer wire types such as cable and significantly less than fiber.

The majority of North Stratford households have 2-3 wired broadband providers available. 100% of North Stratford residents — 1,000 people — are limited to one or fewer options for their Internet service provider. Regardless of alternative services on the market, cable and DSL broadband services usually provide the most reasonable pricing and data use packages for home use.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most common option for North Stratford residents. The provider is available to near one hundred percent of North Stratford. HughesNet is the most common second choice, serving virtually one hundred percent of local addresses with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest package advertised by HughesNet for North Stratford is 25 megabits per second download.

Besides the Internet providers listed above, Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in 90 percent of North Stratford. Fixed wireless companies such as Mountain Top Telecom are worth looking at. However, the incumbent wired options are usually a better deal so far as performance.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around North Stratford

Data collected by our researchers shows that common providers currently use data caps for their home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because users see caps as a strategy to stop streaming services, while providers explain they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic.
