This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Each primary wired broadband network technology has availability in Hayward, including fiber and copper-based cable/DSL. Wide availability of fiber has a correlation with robust Internet speeds, so it's no surprise that Hayward average speeds beat the Wisconsin average by 32.52% over the past 12 months. For those who can't access fiber Internet, cable currently has 67.50 percent availability within city limits, compared to the current 98.07 percent DSL footprint.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet choices in Hayward.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Hayward

Data collected by our research team suggests that popular ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since customers see them as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers insist that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming video, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Hayward

Bad experience to Great experience

I called to order service and it took 45 minutes and it still wasn't done. I was told I would receive an Email. No Email came so I called back 2 days later and got a service rep. What a breath of fresh air, she knew her job and what I needed to be done in 14 minutes. There wasn't even documentation of my first call. I think she should be training people, what a delight. Thanks.
