Internet Access in Bellingham, Washington

Bellingham features a total of 12 broadband providers marketing home service. Including business Internet, that's a total of 26 companies available locally, like PogoZone. (Some might be "doubles", since many companies list residential service and business services separately.)

The average home in Bellingham will find 3-4 providers at their location, or precisely 3.49 ISPs per census block. Only 2.24 percent of Bellingham residents are stuck with one option for home Internet.

Viasat Internet offers the largest coverage area for Bellingham residents. The provider is accessible for close to one hundred percent of Bellingham. HughesNet is also a common option, with coverage in practically one hundred percent of Bellingham with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan in Bellingham is 25 megabits per second.

Taking a look at network tech with significant infrastructure built the city, the most widespread hardwired Internet technology options are DSL and Fiber (86.03 percent coverage) and Cable (93.42 percent coverage). TV corporations are where customers look for cable home Internet, thanks to the fact that they can re-purpose their pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Bellingham subscribers to cable companies such as Xfinity overwhelmingly select cable thanks to the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.)

Statistics about speed averages is sourced via M-Labs. Our in-house market researchers have hand-validated price and service data for 401 Internet offerings within Bellingham as of 2021.

Internet Service for Educational Purposes in Bellingham

Economic development studies often highlight a strong correlation between broadband access and improved schooling. At college, personal Internet access is virtually a necessity as colleges such as Western Washington University adapt web-based systems to share out-of-class work. Looking at 19,301 speed tests recorded over the past year at addresses within 2 miles of Western Washington University campus, performance averages are close to 230.16 Mbps — considerably above the minimum speeds needed for streaming video and operating cloud or communication platforms.

Data Caps in Bellingham

Data from our market researchers shows that popular providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers view caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is video streaming, which can consume anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Bellingham

It's adequate

Customer service has improved, but not great. Ask for the XB6 modem if you sign up or have an older model, it's very reliable and coverage is excellent.

Great service

Awesome in price. They hooked our internet up the next day.

PogoZone is Awesome!

These guys are the best-kept secret in Whatcom County. My business is getting 100Mbps service at Bellingham Towers building and at my home, I have fast speeds. You talk to a real person and they are on top of it if there is an issue. Only had to call them once in the past 2 years.
