Internet Access in Ada, Michigan

Ada offers 8 residential Internet Service Providers, and 20 total providers including business and mobile service. There are 7 choices for wired broadband like DSL or cable.

DSL and cable are the two main broadband network types within the Ada metro area, frequently overlapping and competing on service quality. Cable network speed tends to be stronger. That said, the overall speeds we've recorded with either network system are similar and which is "best" frequently varies based on the network quality in a given area. Ada speed test records suggest that the area's infrastructure is above-average. Ada is 35.49 percent above the Michigan average when it comes to download rates.

The plans displayed here are gathered by hand through our data science and research division. We've aggregated 450 Internet plans in Ada since 2014.

There is a decent amount of choice between providers within Ada. However, 3,000 residents still don't have service from multiple providers. The consequence of this is that if they aren't satisfied with their local provider, they are forced to compromise for a poor quality wireless. However, this issue isn't widespread in Ada — the majority of households have 3 Internet choices.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, registered with coverage in near one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available to about near one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed advertised for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps. HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. Any speed over 10 megabits per second is enough to stream SD video to devices on WiFi, but may become challenging for large households or modern services like Google Hangouts and etc. See the availability map on this page to see Internet options on a granular level.
