Internet Access in Helm, California

Helm offers 6 residential Internet Service Providers, and 11 if you include business and mobile. There are 4 broadband choices, which in Helm usually means DSL.

DSL has a wide coverage area in comparison to other Internet options in Helm because it relies on telephone wires to send data. The wire usually reaches the subscriber from a utility pole, and you plug in a modem to the phone jack inside to complete the connection for Wifi service.

100 percent of Helm is still left with only one or zero options for Internet service. Adjusting for all addresses within city limits, the average address has 2-3 Internet providers available. Areas that have more competition see lower prices and stronger speeds as companies are incentivized to improve network infrastructure to win customers.

Coverage from the most common providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one in Helm.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Helm

Data from our research team shows that some of the top ISPs in Helm use data caps on residential broadband connections. Data caps are controversial because customers view them as a tactic to discourage "cord cutting". Providers insist that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: streaming services, which easily uses anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
