Internet Access in Rudy, Arkansas

FCC data shows two major broadband service options around Rudy: coaxial cable (45.94% coverage) and DSL (62.92% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet service is delivered through cable TV providers via pre-existing coaxial copper TV wires strung up on utility poles. DSL Internet, similarly, is delivered via phone wires. As a rule, DSL is somewhat slower than cable service, especially in houses not able to access a cable or other wired alternative, seeing as these locations are frequently farther away from the DSL switch.

Coverage from Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

Cox Communications and CenturyLink also offer Internet service in Rudy, with 45 percent and 42 percent coverage in the city respectively.
