Internet Access in Trenton, New Jersey

Viasat Internet has the strongest coverage footprint in Trenton. HughesNet is also widely available.

In terms of network types, Trenton residents have a variety of high speed broadband connection options including fiber and cable/DSL. Wide availability of fiber and cable is strongly correlated with fast broadband Internet speeds. Trenton average speeds beat the New Jersey weighted average by 19.18%. As you can see in the speed test data below, ISPs offering fiber optics or even cable will often outperform alternate network choices like DSL. cable has 96.00 percent penetration within city limits, and DSL has a coverage footprint of 80.08 percent.

Since FCC data is collected twice annually and only published six or more months after that, availability shown in the results might not reflect the most recent network upgrades or regional changes. We source availability and plan data directly from some ISPs to help reduce the delay.

The average Trenton home has about 2-3 Internet providers available. Averaged out across all census blocks, there are exactly 2.76 providers per household.

Outside of the Internet options listed above, Verizon Fios is a third choice for wired broadband in 94 percent of Trenton. Wireless options are available in the area, but the wired providers detailed in the results above almost always offer better pricing and speed. The vast majority of residents can get service from some form of wired Internet.
