Prescott College currently shows 3.22 ISPs to pick from at addresses within a couple of miles of the university. Both Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Prescott and Prescott College currently have internet connections that are more than capable of meeting students needs like downloading online video, downloading big files, and video gaming.

Prescott Telecommuting and Tech

Prescott has 1,328 active workers who perform their work primarily from home. 83.36 of those telecommuters take home less than $75,000 per year. When putting together a home network for telecommuting, it's important to verify any data caps on your package. Many Broadband packages have data caps. This might impact you negatively if you consume a lot of data for work purposes. Business plans should be considered if you need more than a regular consumer-grade plan.

Data Caps on Prescott Internet Plans

Many Internet companies have moved to add "data caps" onto their consumer Internet packages as of late. The trend holds true in the Prescott market, with providers such as Sparklight selling plans with data caps. It's not a major issue for most residents, but it may be an issue for households that download or upload a lot of high-def video. Caps for cable bundles tend to be around 1 Terabyte, which is an issue for fewer than one percent of Internet users. Potential Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers in Prescott are advised to verify data use policies when signing up, and not presume them based soley on phone rep statements.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Prescott

Wireless terrible, wired okay, streaming is limited and service expensive

I have internet service at two houses in two states with different vendors (so I know what to expect). I have used Cable One in downtown Prescott AZ for 12 years but if there were a serious alternative in Prescott AZ, I would probably make the change. The internet service is 30% more expensive (compared to my other house), is limited in streaming capacity (compared to the fiber optics at the other house), the wired connection for my home office computer works okay but the wireless capacity (which is 10 feet away from the wired connection) works terribly. As an example, today's exercise program that I was streaming between 4-5 pm took almost an hour (twice the 30-minute length) with 20 interruptions of 15 seconds to 5 minutes duration. This result happens more often than not in the afternoons.
