Internet Access in Chester, Georgia

Information on this page is calculated based on biannual FCC coverage reporting. Our data also includes direct provider reports to further validate and enhance that data. Plan and pricing information on this page is hand-gathered by our data science division. Locally, we've analyzed 137 Internet deals in the area around Chester since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 127 records as of 2021. 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.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the main Internet choices in Chester.

DSL Internet providers connect customers to Internet service over telephone infrastructure, which explains why DSL often comes through companies that historically offered landline phone service. DSL is available for 22.06 percent of the Chester population. See the data visualization tools on this page to get an idea of how the promised speed, latency, and etc line up with real-world speeds.

Being trapped with one Internet provider isn't a problem in Chester, since there aren't any wired broadband Internet providers. (As defined by wired service capable of speeds meeting the FCC 25 Mbps and 3 Mbps upload performance minimum.)

Data Caps in Chester

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the popular ISPs in Chester currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since users view caps as a strategy for limiting streaming. Providers maintain they are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hour.
