Internet Access in Adger, Alabama

As it stands, there are 5 broadband providers in Adger with home connections, and a total of 11 including business and mobile providers like AT&T Fiber and XFINITY from Comcast. (Some may be "doubles", since many companies list home and smb service under separate branches.)

The majority of Adger residents have 2-3 wired Internet providers available to them. 39.03 percent of the Adger area — 1,000 people — have one or fewer options. Regardless of other services available, such as LTE, cable and DSL broadband almost always offer the best pricing and data packages for home use.

Taking a look now at network technology with significant infrastructure built around the city, we see that the most widespread wired broadband Internet tech infrastructures are Cable and IPBB, with 64.34% and 62.48% respectively. Cable internet connections are marketed by traditional cable television corporations, who use preexisting TV network connections. Adger subscribers to cable companies such as Spectrum generally pick cable because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.)

The data listed here comes from FCC coverage reports. Then, it's with private data sources to provide more accurate resources than is available from the FCC directly. Speeds and pricing data is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most common overall, with coverage for virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet has availability for practically one hundred percent of residents. The top speed recorded for Viasat is up to 100 Mbps, while HughesNet offers up to 25 Mbps. Anything over 10 Mbps is sufficient for streaming standard definition video over WiFi, but becomes an issue for large households or bandwidth-intensive apps like Skype, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming. See the availability map below to see how broadband coverage compares at the census block level.
