Internet Access in Short Hills, New Jersey

Viasat Internet has the strongest coverage in Short Hills. HughesNet is also widely available.

Looking at network tech available the city, the most widespread wired broadband tech varieties are Cable and Fiber, with practically one hundred percent and practically one hundred percent respectively. Cable internet connections are sold by traditional television companies, leveraging their preexisting TV network connections. Short Hills-area customers of cable Internet service providers like Xfinity overwhelmingly select cable because of the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber infrastructure uses newer, more modern fiber-optic transmission lines made of dense glass strands which can transmit digital data using light. Thanks largely to the use of fiber lines, broadband Internet download speeds in Short Hills rank 34.79 percent higher than the state average in New Jersey. Fiber network technology results in better speeds and uptime, but in some cases may switch to copper wiring in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Coaxial last mile connections hamper performance, but are still a grade higher than cable/DSL.

Verizon Fios provides an alternative. They offer virtually one hundred percent local availability and a top download speed of 950 Mbps. Aside from consumer broadband, there are 7 providers in the city offering enterprise and business/smb technologies such as SD-WAN or custom fiber loops. The small business listings here include all providers with business packages online, but keep in mind that home providers might have unlisted business packages as well.

Since the majority of buildings are only wired for one phone company and cable networks don't generally overlap, the average home in Short Hills has 2-3 wired Internet service providers available. cable and DSL broadband are likely to offer the most reasonable price and data policies for home use.

Broadband access statistics here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are calculated from public government data from the FCC and private datasets collected from industry sources or through unlisted sources. Average statistics about speed and performance data comes via M-Labs, the speed test tool integrated into our site as well as Google and Chrome search results. The BroadbandNow market researchers have manually aggregated package price for 392 broadband plans in Short Hills as of 2022.
