Internet Access in Metuchen, New Jersey

The average subscriber within Metuchen has 2.8 providers available. This is common amount of options, since most companies that provide Internet were formerly cable TV or phone providers, and most houses are equipped for both of these services.

Verizon is also a common Internet option in Metuchen. They offer mainly DSL service with coverage in near one hundred percent of the area.

Looking specifically at the Internet technologies in Metuchen, there are essentially two primary options: cable (Optimum by Altice is an example) and DSL (providers like Verizon).

We should note that since FCC coverage data is currently only collected twice annually and only published six months after that, provider availability shown in the results below may not reflect the latest network expansions or regional changes. We collect coverage and plan data directly from some companies to help fix this problem.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, registered with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, has registered coverage for near one hundred percent of local residents. The fastest download speed recorded for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers as high as 25 Mbps. As a rule, anything over 10 megabits per second (Mbps) will be sufficient for streaming SD video on WiFi, but becomes challenging for large households or high-bandwidth apps like Skype, cloud apps, and etc. See the availability map below to see how Internet options compare at the census block level.
