The data on this page is primarily sourced via FCC filings. Then, it is through private data sources and direct provider reporting to output more granular listings than governmental websites. Speed and pricing data is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans annually.
When we're looking at network technologies with significant infrastructure already built within the area, we see that the most common physical wire Internet connection infrastructures are Cable and Fiber, with virtually one hundred percent and 94.88% respectively. Television companies are the main source for cable Internet and Wifi service, seeing as they can re-purpose existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Baldwinsville customers of cable Internet service providers such as Spectrum often pick cable because of the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Fiber uses future-proofed fiber-optic lines, which are composed of hair-like glass strands which deliver binary data as light. Fiber network technology provides stronger speed and performance, but may switch to slower copper wires in the "last mile" near a subscriber. As a result, not all fiber connections offer true "gigabit" speeds.
While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, Spectrum also serves Baldwinsville with a maximum speed of 940 Mbps. There are also 5 providers with enterprise-level service like MPLS. See the interactive map below to see how many options residents have on the census block level.
