Internet Access in Bridgeport, Nebraska

Currently, there are 10 broadband providers in Bridgeport marketing home service, and a total of 13 including smb, enterprise, and mobile providers like NebraskaLink. (Note that some may be "doubles", since many companies sell residential service and business services separately.)

Taking a look at network tech offered in the city, the most widespread physical wire broadband Internet technology options are DSL (74.94 percent coverage) and Cable (64.27 percent coverage). TV corporations are usually the source for cable Internet service, seeing as they can re-purpose their pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. DSL Internet service is delivered via phone lines on utility poles, and is sold by providers like CenturyLink that own phone lines. DSL is the slowest of all major broadband options except dial-up.

The average home in Bridgeport has 5 companies at their location, or exactly 5 ISPs in each census block. Only 35.24 percent of Bridgeport residents are limited to one or fewer options for home Internet service.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) offers the largest coverage area in Bridgeport. The company is available to close to one hundred percent of Bridgeport. HughesNet is the most likely second option, with coverage in close to one hundred percent of residents with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan for Bridgeport is 25 megabits per second.

Data Caps in Bridgeport

Data from our market researchers suggests that common providers currently place some sort of limit on streaming on residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since subscribers see them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
