Finding the perfect internet service provider can be overwhelming, especially if there is more than one option available. How exactly can you decide which provider meets your household internet needs? Do you subscribe to the cheapest provider? Or, do you subscribe to the most expensive one?

Well, three things that matter the most when choosing an internet service provider are the maximum download speeds, data allowance, and whether you want to go for a term or no-term agreement. Moreover, you must know which type of internet will you prefer. In urban and most suburban regions wired internet is available in 3 forms: High-speed DSL, Cable, and Fiber. But, in rural regions, removed from the reach of wireline services, Fixed Wireless and Satellite are usually the only high-speed internet options available. The availability of one or more of these types depends on where you are located.

Residential Internet Coverage in Connecticut

In Connecticut, DSL and Cable are the most widely available broadband options. Nearly 96% of residents of the state can access DSL while Cable is available to about 99%. As far as Fiber optic internet, it is limited to select areas and coverage amounts to a little over 9%. Satellite internet however is accessible anywhere you get a clear view of the southern sky.

Overall, Connecticut is proud of being among the top 10 most connected states in the country, with all 8 counties depicting over 95% connected status. Average download speeds in the city lurk around 160 Mbps, and nearly 99% of the state population can enjoy 100 Mbps or faster broadband, which is another testimony to how well connected Connecticut is.

HughesNet

HughesNet is America top pick for satellite internet. Despite being unique in its mode of transmission, HughesNet internet has some limitations. But if you happen to be part of the percentage of consumers in Connecticut who are stuck with just one or simply no wired option, and also have no access to Fixed Wireless in the area, satellite internet is your best choice. 

HughesNet Gen5 Internet plans offer a fixed 25/3 Mbps download and upload speed across the board, but each is defined by the data allowance it gets you. Data tiers are typically designed to cater to a range

of consumer needs from both modest to extensive. To compensate for the capped allowance, HughesNet gives subscribers 50 GB of Bonus Zone data. All internet consumption during off-peak hours (2 am - 8 am) is automatically accounted for by this FREE data block you get every month. Plus the data cap is soft, there is no overage fee and you are also not thrown offline, albeit the speed is throttled to 1-3 Mbps for download.

All in all, HughesNet plans are good enough for small-mid size households where standard usage patterns prevail.

  • 25/3 Mbps satellite internet
  • FREE Bonus Zone Data
  • Available coast-to-coast

$39.99/mo. for 6 months with 24-month commitment

 

Satellite communications infrastructure is expensive to deploy, so the service comes at a higher price. But a big chunk of what you pay goes towards being able to access broadband speed in a location where no other high-speed internet service is available. 

Call at 1-855-349-9309 to speak to our professionals regarding the HughesNet Internet plan you are interested in.

EarthLink & CenturyLink

EarthLink and CenturyLink both serve Connecticut to a varying extent. Each of these ISPs provides high-speed DSL and Fiber internet to residential neighborhoods, but you may find services are a little limited compared to competitors.  

EarthLink works in a way that is a little unique in that it piggybacks on established DSL and Fiber networks of other ISPs by entering partnerships. In most service locations across its 50 state coverage, EarthLink uses CenturyLink, AT&T, Frontier and Verizon networks. But unlike these providers, EarthLink does not make promotional offers so you get to pay at the standard rate right from the start. All EarthLink Internet plans come with unlimited data. But speed availability and pricing is tricky so it is advisable to determine offer availability. To do that call at 1-844-343-1171.

CenturyLink Internet plans are simple and straightforward. High-speed DSL speeds max out at 100 Mbps, and pure Fiber internet gets you up to 940 Mbps. All plans come with unlimited data. There are no annual contracts, and you pay month to month, without seeing a price hike as it so often happens when the promo price expires. CenturyLink Complete WiFi transforms your in-home WiFi experience. The CenturyLink wireless modem uses WiFi 6 tech and provides a reliable, fast, and secure connection. Again, since CenturyLink availability is somewhat limited in Connecticut, do check offer availability by calling at 1-855-349-9310.

FAQs:

Is DSL better or Cable Internet?

Cable Internet offers faster speeds and costs less per Mbps with the majority of offers. The advantage DSL has is that it is more widely available in rural America.

Does HughesNet Internet offer unlimited data?

HughesNet Gen5 plans are data-based. You get 10, 20, 30, and 50 GB data plans which are supplemented by 50 GB Bonus Zone Data free of cost.
 

How do I check which internet provider offers internet at my address?

You can call BuyTVInternetPhone at 1-855-349-9328 to inquire about internet providers in your area.
 

Why did my monthly internet bill increase?

Your monthly bill may be showing a higher amount because the promotional period has come to an end. Promotional offers usually last for 12 months, but some are shorter at 3 or 6 months. Another reason for the higher bill to pay could be the data overage charge, that is if you are on a service plan with capped data.
