Internet Access in Perth Amboy, New Jersey

Perth Amboy offers 5 residential Internet providers, or 14 when including business and mobile operators. Consumers have access to 5 choices for wired broadband which in Perth Amboy means fiber, cable, and DSL.

The plans listed here are collected by hand by our research division. We've aggregated 337 Internet plans in the area around Perth Amboy, in total.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in general, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

2 providers per block isn't a strong amount of broadband competition, but it's sufficient to drive price and speed competition in neighborhoods where providers overlap. Choice can vary from block to block.

In summary, Perth Amboy's Internet infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in New Jersey cities: strong coverage for cable and DSL, except that a majority of houses are stuck with one option for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact that Broadband outfits are former cable television and landline phone corporations. So, they can use legacy networks to deliver broadband bundles. Fiber service has been growing as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 98.87 percent of the Perth Amboy area has coverage by fiber reaching as far as the street outside.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 100% of Perth Amboy residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

Data Caps in Perth Amboy

Data from our researchers shows that popular providers in Perth Amboy place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: video streaming, which can consume one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
