Internet Access in Binghamton, New York

Binghamton features two major broadband network types to understand — coaxial cable (practically one hundred percent availability) and DSL (90.29% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet is generally provided by TV corporations via coaxial TV wires on telephone poles. DSL Internet is sent via phone lines. The vast majority of Binghamton street addresses can subscribe to both cable and DSL service from at least two Internet companies.

Since FCC coverage data is currently only collected biannually and only published six months later, availability listed may not include the most recent network expansions.

Spectrum is also a common Internet option in Binghamton. They offer Cable service available to 99 percent of the area. Plexicomm is another alternative wireless service worth taking note of for 97 percent of the local area. Keep in mind it has to have roof access or proximity to a Plexicomm access point.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Binghamton

Data collected by our market research team shows that popular providers use data caps for their residential broadband connections. Data caps are controversial because subscribers see them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting". Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can consume one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
