Taking a look now at network technologies offered within Lowell, the most widespread hardwired broadband Internet connection infrastructures are IPBB and Fiber and Cable, with 84.83% and virtually one hundred percent respectively. TV corporations are where customers look for cable home Internet service, seeing as they can leverage existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for Lowell residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range.

Spectrum is a common second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet). They offer virtually one hundred percent availability and a maximum speed of 940 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only choice for Internet access in Lowell. fixed wireless providers such as Open Broadband are able to offer 100 Mbps or more over direct wireless links.
