Internet Access in Welsh, Louisiana

FCC Form 477 data is the primary source of Welsh broadband coverage information listed below. To date, we've crunched 4,644 rows of governmental data catalogues about broadband access within Welsh. The speed averages are drawn from 429 online speed tests from IP-verified customers in Welsh.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Welsh's most widely available wired broadband options.

Most Welsh households have 2-3 Internet providers that are able to service at their location. This is a good level of competition. It tends to improve pricing and service quality at a given address. This Internet access isn't distributed evenly, though — as a surprising 36.63 of the local population still has only one option for broadband access.

CenturyLink is another commonly available broadband choice in Welsh, offering primarily DSL service available to 93 percent of Welsh. Faster Cajun Networks is another alternative wireless service for 95 percent of the area, although it requires roof access and line of site with a Faster Cajun Networks access point.

So, essentially, Satellite and DSL are the most commonly available types of broadband available in Welsh. The coverage maps and speed test data seen below show how the real-world speed and performance results vary between neighborhoods and Internet providers in Welsh.
