The plans listed above are manually gathered through our data science and research division. The 21 Internet plans displayed are the most current out of 122 plans we've seen in Virginia to date.

Overall, Virginia's Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in US cities: wide coverage of cable and DSL, except that most houses are limited to only one company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. [1] The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband providers were started pre-Internet as cable TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they can use existing networks on utility poles to deliver broadband bundles.
