Moscow is the 70th most connected city in Idaho ahead of Clarkston, Pullman, Potlatch, Colfax, and Troy.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 3,000 people in Latah County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Approximately 88% of Moscow residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

As of this month, 83843 is the zip code with the fastest average download speed in Moscow.

Zip-based speed averages are calculated from M-Labs consumer speed tests run by IP addresses in the area.

In Latah County, approximately 8,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Internet Service Access for Education in Moscow

University Of Idaho and New Saint Andrews College are the biggest universities in Moscow. For the 10,703 combined students living in the area, fast internet access is a must for accessing educational materials and conducting research. Students living surrounding University Of Idaho and New Saint Andrews College are likely to be choosing between the major providers outlined above. Speed test records from the zip where both campuses are located show an average speed of 54.93 Mbps. Average speeds are often misleading since they include household networking issues, and the real speed you can achieve shouldn't be less than 10–30percent less than the advertised speeds above. FCC and US Government reports often cite the need to improve internet service availability for college and high school attendees. There is a positive correlation between improved high-speed internet service access and increased education/employment opportunities, especially in small cities and rural areas.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Moscow

Data from our research team suggests that top ISPs in the area currently use data caps on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue lately since subscribers view caps as a tactic to stop streaming services, while providers explain caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
