Internet Access in Edison, New Jersey

Currently, there are 7 Internet service providers (ISPs) in the Edison area marketing home service, and a total of 29 including business and mobile providers like Monmouth Telephone & Telegraph and CenturyLink Fiber Gigabit. (Some might be "double entries" as many incumbent providers sell home and business service under separate branches.)

Viasat Internet offers the widest availability in Edison. The company is available to near one hundred percent of Edison. HughesNet is the most common second option, serving virtually one hundred percent of Edison with predominantly Satellite Internet service. HughesNet's fastest plan for Edison is 25 Mbps.

Looking at network technology offered in the city, we see that the most frequently available hardwired broadband Internet technology infrastructures are Cable (96.05 percent coverage) and DSL (96.24 percent coverage). Cable internet connections are marketed by television corporations, who use already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Cable can often make sense for Edison residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone providers usually offer DSL Internet, because DSL transmits digital information over telephone wires. The twisted copper construction seen in phone lines provides lower speeds and bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.

The majority of Edison households have 2-3 wired Internet service providers available. 5.69% of Edison residents — 5,000 people in total — have one or fewer options for their Internet service provider. Regardless of other services on the market, such as wireless, cable and DSL Internet services almost always provide the best price for home use.

Coverage data on BroadbandNow comes from FCC reported data. Providers in Edison are legally required to submit availability data biannually. By using direct relationships with telecom companies, we are able to validate this data in comparison to privatized data submitted by Internet providers directly. This helps us to produce more accurate maps and availability data than government publications. The speed averages displayed here are calculated from browser-based speed tests from the Edison area. Some of the other data and statistics presented below come from NTIA and Census databases.

  • There are 21 internet providers in Edison with 7 of those offering residential service
  • Edison is the 15th most connected city in New Jersey ahead of Highland Park, Metuchen, Iselin, and Fords, but behind Keasbey.
  • The fastest zip code in Edison for July 2021 is 08837. (see all below).
