Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) has the most coverage in Smithshire. HughesNet is also widely available.

As of recent government reports, 94.48 percent of Smithshire residents are limited to only one option for home residential broadband.

When we're looking at network technologies with significant infrastructure built in the city, we see that the most prevalent physical wire broadband Internet connection varieties are DSL (88.62 percent coverage) and Satellite (near one hundred percent coverage). DSL service is delivered by twisted copper telephone wires up on utility poles, and is sold by service providers like MTC Communications that build or own copper phone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper makeup of telephone lines provides a lower bandwidth ceiling than newer wire types such as cable and significantly less than fiber.

Outside of the Internet options detailed above, MTC Communications is a third choice for wired broadband in 88 percent of the Smithshire area. Wireless choices like satellite and mobile are commonly available locally, but the wired options shown in the results above virtually always have stronger pricing for the speed you get. The vast majority of residents have access to some form of wired broadband.

Data Cap Issues in Smithshire

Data from our researchers suggests that many of the top providers currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because consumers see caps as a strategy to discourage streaming services, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hr.
