Internet Access in Vinalhaven, Maine

There are 2.02 broadband providers per census block in Vinalhaven. This means that the majority of houses in the area have a minimum of 2 choices for Internet service.

Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) is another common broadband option for Vinalhaven, offering mainly DSL service available to 98 percent of the area. Trailrunner LLC is another alternative wireless service for 59 percent of Vinalhaven. Keep in mind fixed wireless needs roof access and proximity to a Trailrunner LLC tower or access point.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Vinalhaven's most widely available wired Internet choices.

Remember that since FCC availability data is only collected twice a year and only made public six months after that, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help fix this issue.

So, looking at the big picture, Vinalhaven's Internet infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many Maine cities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, with the problem being that most houses are limited to one provider for setting up either Internet service. This pattern has a logical cause. Internet providers used to be television and landline phone corporations. So, they can use existing networks on telephone poles to deliver their broadband Internet services.

Data Cap Issues Around Vinalhaven

Data from our researchers shows that common ISPs currently use data caps on home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial since users view them as a tactic for limiting streaming, while providers insist that they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
