Internet Access in Oxford, Iowa

The average residence in Oxford has 2.85 providers available. This is a normal level of competition, seeing as most companies that provide Internet packages were formerly cable TV or telephone providers, and most houses have long been wired for one of each.

As is normal for a city of Oxford's relatively low level of broadband competition, the average download speeds in Oxford fall short of the Iowa average. (10.19 Mbps, as compared to Iowa's 60.45 Mbps weighted average over the past twelve months.)

The broadband packages displayed above are gathered manually by our data science team.

Coverage from the biggest providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, generally, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

Data Caps in Oxford

Many Internet providers have been moving to impose data "plans" to their residential broadband plans recently. This trend is certainly true for the Oxford market, with Internet companies such as Mediacom featuring plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for the majority of residents, but may affect users that stream a large amount of high-def content. Data caps on cable packages are generally in the neighborhood of one Terabyte. This is a problem for fewer than one percent of Internet users. Mediacom Cable customers in Oxford should verify data caps before signing up.
