Internet Access in Paxton, Nebraska

Paxton has two major Internet service options to grapple with — cable (6.67% availability) and DSL (95.16% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet access is generally provided by TV providers, using copper coaxial TV cables mounted on telephone poles. DSL is delivered over twisted copper phone lines. DSL generally tends to be slower performing compared to cable service. This is especially true for addresses not able to access a cable alternative.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) or HughesNet are the most common Internet options in Paxton.

Keep in mind that since FCC data is currently tallied up biannually and only released 6+ months after that, availability listed in the results above might not include the latest expansions or regional changes.

Consolidated Telephone Company is another common Internet choice in Paxton, offering DSL connections in 91 percent of Paxton. WirelessInet,LLC is another alternative wireless service worth taking note of for close to one hundred percent of Paxton, although it has to have roof access and line of site with a WirelessInet,LLC tower or access point.
