Internet Access in Globe, Arizona

Information below is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage reports. Our data also includes direct reporting from providers to further validate the data. Plane and pricing data shown here is hand-gathered manually by our market research team. We have aggregated 194 broadband deals in Globe in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 342 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As residents might predict, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

Sparklight (formerly Cable One) as well as CenturyLink can also provide Internet service in Globe, often competing for the same customers.

In less fortunate communities in Globe, as many as 2,000 people are left with one (or zero) choices for wired Internet.

The takeaway is that Globe's broadband Internet infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other Arizona cities: strong availability of cable and DSL, but limited options since most houses are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service. This pattern results from the fact that most Internet providers have their roots as cable television and phone companies. So, they use already connected wired networks on utility poles to deliver broadband bundles.
