Internet Access in Alna, Maine

There are two primary broadband options for Alna residents: Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat mostly offers Satellite service. Their network offers speeds up to 35 Mbps and availability in virtually one hundred percent of the population. As for HughesNet, they sell Satellite, with availability in practically one hundred percent of the area.

In terms of network technologies available in the Alna area, the most prevalent wired broadband tech varieties are Cable and 5G Internet, with 90.97% and 67.28% respectively. Cable internet connections are marketed by former cable television providers, who use existing TV network connections. Alna subscribers to cable Internet service providers such as Spectrum generally select it due to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.)

The information listed here is sourced from FCC reports. Then, it is using private databases to provide more accurate resources than is available from the FCC directly. Address-level information isn't available for all providers. Data about speeds and pricing of listed Internet plans is sourced by our research and analysis division, who gather tens of thousands of data points every year.

Since most houses are only wired for one phone provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Alna residents have 2-3 wired Internet options to choose from. 16.5% of the Alna area — 100 people — are limited to one or fewer options for which provider to use. Regardless of other services with local coverage, including wireless, cable and DSL Internet services almost always provide the best price and data policies for home use.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Spectrum is also in the area with service in 90 percent of addresses and a recorded maximum speed of 940 Mbps. See the map on this page to see broadband coverage on the census block level, and the "Download Speeds" tab to see how Viasat compares to other local ISPs in consumer speed tests.
