Wave Internet: Service Types, Speed & Data

So you found your hometown in the listing above? Let’s then explore Wave Internet speeds, data and promo offers that are likely to be available to you. Keep in mind, Wave offerings can vary from one service region to another as far as available speed tiers. And also somewhat in terms of pricing and the length of the promotional term. Our review can help you shape a decent idea of the value of a Wave Internet subscription.

Service Type

The Wave network primarily uses a hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network to deliver home internet connections. But as Astound Broadband continues with the expansion of its footprint, you can expect Fiber-to-the-Home connections from Wave in more West Coast locations.

Speeds

While available speed tiers can differ depending on the network capacity in your vicinity, Wave Broadband delivers downloads starting from 100 Mbps and maxing out at gigabit speeds widely across its footprint. The mid-tier plans deliver 250 Mbps and 500 Mbps downloads, and are also commonly accessible in different Wave service locations.

If you are a small family with standard usage, the 100 Mbps plan can support up to 4 devices with ease. For mid-sized homes the 250 Mbps or 500 Mbps plan is ideal. These plans can support a number of users for a range of online activities even when all devices are connected simultaneously. And as for the super-connected smart home of today, and a family that is big on the internet, the Wave Gig service is a perfect match.

With each of these speed options you can expect Wave Internet to get you reliable connectivity that supports work from home, virtual learning, HD video streaming, competitive gaming, and of course all your everyday tasks like shopping, banking, sharing and connecting on the social media etc.

Data Allowance

As for data, the allowance ranges from 400 GB for the High-speed 100 plan to unlimited with Gig service. Mid-tier plans get you 500 GB with High-speed 250 and 1 TB with High-speed 500. While not unlimited, the data allowance offered with each speed-based tier is such that it can cover standard usage comfortably, and you need not stress about running out, or an overage charge.
