Data here is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings. BroadbandNow also uses direct provider coverage reports and other privatized datasets to validate that data, down to the census block level. Plan and pricing data on BroadbandNow is collected manually by our data science division. BroadbandNow has found and verified 83 broadband deals in Richey since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

25.86 percent of Richey residents are cut off from choice when it comes to true broadband Internet service. This isn't a surprise, since market competition between Internet providers is low. Locations in the local area have 1-2 options for broadband service.

Viasat Internet or HughesNet are Richey's most common wired Internet options.

Data Cap Issues Around Richey

Data collected by our market researchers shows that many of the popular providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since users see caps as a strategy to limit video streaming, while providers maintain that caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which can consume 1–7GB/hour.
