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 458 bundled broadband plans in and near Fayetteville in the past few years. The speed averages shown here are calculated from 16,295 speed test recordingsover the past 12 months.

Cox Communications is a common second choice, serving Fayetteville with 92 percent local coverage and a maximum speed of 1,000 Mbps. There are also 5 companies in city limits with enterprise-level subscriptions such as SD-WAN or custom fiber loops. We list all providers with business services on their site.

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 6.20 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.
