Internet Access in Royal, Arkansas

Information on BroadbandNow is calculated from biannual FCC broadband coverage reports. BroadbandNow leverages direct provider reports and other privatized data to enhance that data. Plan, pricing, and other data is collected manually through our data science division. We've analyzed 158 Internet plans for Royal in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 659 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.

DSL broadband from phone providers has lots of coverage in comparison with other Internet services in Royal since pretty much every house in Royal is wired with telephone lines — therefore, seeing as most homes are already wired for phone wiring, it's no suprise that Royal would have 71.21 percent DSL coverage.

83.53 percent of Royal is stuck with only one or zero Internet choices. Adjusting for all census blocks in city limits, the average customer has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. Addresses with better competition get reduced pricing and improved speeds as companies are incentivized to improve network infrastructure to win subscribers.

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

Besides the Internet options listed above, T-Mobile Home Internet is another option to consider. They have coverage in 75 percent of the Royal area. Wireless providers such as Wireless Etc. and satellite Internet providers such as are worth looking at. However, the incumbent wired providers usually offer a stronger value so far as performance.

Internet Statistics 2022

3,000 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Royal

Data collected by our research team suggests that many of the common providers in the area use data caps for their home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since users see caps as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers explain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
