Internet Access in Rockaway, New Jersey

Rockaway has a total of 5 Internet service providers (ISPs) with residential service, and a total of 18 including specialized smb, enterprise, and mobile providers like M2 nGage.

Viasat Internet offers the widest availability for Rockaway residents. They are available to near one hundred percent of Rockaway. HughesNet is the most common second option, providing practically one hundred percent of the area with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest package for Rockaway is 25 megabits per second.

Looking at network tech installed in the city, we see that the most frequently available hardwired Internet tech types are Fiber (94.90 percent coverage) and Cable (99.27 percent coverage). TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet, because they can re-purpose their pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Local customers of cable ISPs such as Optimum by Altice overwhelmingly pick cable because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Fiber is composed of more modern Fiber-optical lines, which are composed of tiny, thin glass strands that send binary data as light. Largely thanks to the use of fiber lines, broadband average download rates around Rockaway are 26.70% higher than the state average in New Jersey. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to coaxial cables in the "last mile." Copper technology can downgrade performance, but are almost always faster than cable/DSL.

Since the majority of buildings come pre-wired for one phone (DSL) company and cable networks don't generally overlap, the average home in Rockaway has 2-3 wired broadband providers available to them. DSL and cable broadband services are likely to offer the most reasonable price for home use.

By using direct relationships with Internet providers, we are able to verify this data with private data reported by telecoms.
