Internet Access in Fayetteville, Arkansas

Information below is calculated from the twice-annual FCC provider territory reporting. We also use direct provider reports to further validate that data. Plan, pricing, and other information shown here is aggregated by our research division. BroadbandNow has found and verified 429 bundled broadband plans in and near Fayetteville in the past few years. speed averages are based on 20,606 local user speed tests and intended for general provider comparison purposes, not as an indicator of top Internet speedsin the area.

Cox Communications is a common second choice, serving Fayetteville with 92 percent local coverage and a maximum speed of 1,000 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only choice for Internet access in Fayetteville. fixed wireless providers like T-Mobile Home Internet can reach 25 Mbps via wireless technology. There are 5 providers in city limits selling enterprise and business products and services such as SD-WAN. Our listings include every provider with business packages on their website, but keep in mind that residential companies sometimes have unlisted business plans as well.

The average Fayetteville building will find 3-4 providers at a given location. Still, 3.38 percent of Fayetteville residents are stuck with one or fewer options for broadband.

Viasat Internet is the most common provider for Fayetteville residents. The provider is available to practically one hundred percent of Fayetteville. HughesNet is the most common second choice, with coverage in near one hundred percent of the area with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest package advertised by HughesNet for Fayetteville is 25 Mbps.

The takeaway is that Fayetteville's broadband infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in US cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, but only two choices since most houses are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service. [1] This pattern has a logical cause. Broadband providers are former television and landline phone companies. So, they use existing infrastructures for delivering broadband Internet services. Fiber has been expanding as an alternative, and while not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" connections, 71.99 percent of Fayetteville has access to fiber that reaches at least as far as a box near the property line. Owing to strong network competition within Fayetteville, the area's average download speed is currently 6.56 percent higher than the state average, accounting for all cities. Take a look at the download speed test data directly below to see how providers compare over time.

Fayetteville is the 93rd most connected city in Arkansas ahead of West Fork, Prairie Grove, and Elkins, but behind Springdale and Farmington.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 2,000 people in Washington County don't have access to any wired internet.

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

Fiber Availability: 72% of people living in Fayetteville have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 97% of Fayetteville residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Washington County, approximately 5,000 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.

Internet Service for Education in Fayetteville

Economic development studies often spot a increasing pattern between broadband access and performance in schooling. Internet access is essentially a requirement as colleges such as University Of Arkansas in Fayetteville move digital systems to share student work. Looking at 10,799 speed tests reported over the past year at locations within two miles of University Of Arkansas campus, performance averages are close to 67.47 Mbps — far higher than the minimum connection speed needed for viewing video and operating cloud or communication platforms.

Data Caps in Fayetteville

Data from our researchers shows that common ISPs currently use data caps for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers view them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain data caps are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is streaming services, which easily eats up 1–7GB per hour.
