Internet Access in Freeport, New York

Information here is based on the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reporting. BroadbandNow leverages direct provider reports and other privatized datasets to further validate that data on a census block level. Plan and pricing information is gathered manually by our research team. BroadbandNow has found and verified 285 broadband plans in Freeport in the past few years. Real-world speed test data listed for Freeport is based on the 9,504 speed tests shown in the tools below.

HughesNet is an second choice to the primary providers (Verizon and Viasat), serving Freeport with close to one hundred percent coverage and a top download speed of 25 Mbps. Outside of residential Internet, there are also 3 companies in the area offering specialized enterprise and business/smb services like SD-WAN and MPLS. We list all providers with explicit business packages on their website.

Since many houses come pre-wired for one telephone (DSL) provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Freeport households have 2 wired broadband providers to choose from. Regardless of other services available, such as wireless, DSL and cable broadband usually offer the best pricing and data packages for home use.

Verizon is the most widely available choice in Freeport. close to one hundred percent of Freeport census blocks can receive access to them. Viasat Internet is the most common second choice in the area, with coverage in practically one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest plan we've seen for Viasat in Freeport is 35 Mbps.

The takeaway here is that Freeport's Internet infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US metro areas: wide coverage of cable and DSL, with the caveat that most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. This pattern results from the fact that most Broadband service providers started as cable television and phone companies. So, they can use these pre-existing copper infrastructures to deliver their broadband Internet services. Fiber Internet is slowly growing as an alternative. While not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, practically one hundred percent of the area has access to fiber that reaches to a box near the property line.
