This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

In Aleutians West , approximately 4,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Wireless and Video Streaming

Not all fixed wireless outfits have data limits, however it's much more common with any wireless type of service than found with wired providers. This is reasonable, since wireless is trickier to manage. With fixed wireless, a subscriber uploading and downloading 4K video 24/7 can suck up the bandwidth another customer receives. Potential subscribers should confirm the data cap before they sign up with local providers like GCI Internet and consider a separate TV plan.
