Internet Access in Bedford, New York

Viasat Internet has the strongest coverage footprint in Bedford. HughesNet is also commonly available.

In terms of network technologies available in the area, we see that the most common hardwired broadband Internet technology infrastructures are Cable and Fiber, with 98.53% and practically one hundred percent respectively. Cable internet connections are marketed by cable TV operators, leveraging already-built TV network connections. Local customers of cable service providers such as Optimum by Altice usually pick cable thanks to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Fiber infrastructure uses newer, more modern Fiber-optical cables, which are made of hair-like glass strands that deliver binary data using light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to to copper cables in the "last mile." As a result, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" performance.

The information on this page is primarily sourced from FCC coverage reports. Then, it's using privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to provide more accurate resources than is available from government websites. Lit address data is currently limited to select ISPs. Data about pricing of listed Internet plans is sourced by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points each year.

The majority of Bedford residents have 2 wired Internet service providers available. 1.31 percent of the Bedford area have one or fewer options. Regardless of other networks with local coverage, such as wireless, cable and DSL broadband generally provide the best price for home use.

Outside of the Internet options listed above, Verizon Fios is a third option for coverage in near one hundred percent of the Bedford area.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting in Bedford

Data collected by our research team shows that common ISPs in the area use data caps on home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers see caps as a tactic for limiting video streaming. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming services, which can use 1–7GB per hour.
