Internet Access in Franklin, New York

There are an average of 2.82 broadband providers per census block in Franklin. So, most households in the area will have at least 2 options so far as Internet, and many residents can switch if disappointed by a provider.

Coverage from the two most common companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, generally, will overlap. As residents might predict, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is common in Franklin.

Delhi Telephone and Frontier Communications can also provide coverage in Franklin, often competing for the same customers.

The plans shown above are manually collected by our data analysis team.

Overall, Franklin's Internet situation follows a common pattern in New York towns and cities: wide availability of cable and DSL service, but limited choice since most residences are limited to only one company for either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that Broadband Internet service providers have their roots as TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use these legacy wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet service. Fiber service has been expanding as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 95.65 percent of the Franklin area has access to fiber reaching at least as far as the building property.

  • There are 10 internet providers in Franklin with 6 of those offering residential service
  • Franklin is the 529th most connected city in New York ahead of Walton, but behind Otego, Oneonta, Sidney, and Unadilla.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 95% of Franklin residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

Data Cap Issues Around Franklin

Data collected by our research team suggests that top providers use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a tactic to stop "cord cutting". Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily consumes 1–7GB per hour.
