Considering network technology available around Huntsville, we see that the most common wired broadband Internet tech options are IPBB and Fiber (79.31 percent coverage) and Cable (81.96 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV providers are the main source for cable Internet, seeing as they can utilize their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable can often make sense for Huntsville residents due to the strong mix of speed and value.
So far as coverage options, the average Huntsville home has 5-6 companies at their address, or exactly 5.77 Internet providers per census block. Only 4.73 percent of Huntsville residents have one or fewer options for Internet.
Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, registered with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available for close to one hundred percent of the population. The fastest speed recorded for Viasat is 35 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised packages up to 25 Mbps. Any speed above 10 Mbps will be enough to view SD videos on WiFi. However, it may become an issue for large households or high-bandwidth services like video chat and multiplayer gaming.
