Internet Access in Austin, Nevada

For more sparsely populated areas such as Austin, fixed wireless from towers and other wireless Internet technologies provide the most common connectivity choice. FCC records and our private datasets show little to no wired broadband Internet infrastructure availability at residential addresses, but fixed wireless Internet is a decent alternative available to 90.55 percent of the area.

Looking at the less developed neighborhoods within Austin, as many as 500 people are left with one (or zero) choices for broadband Internet.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As you might expect, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

The Internet access statistics here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are based on government data from the FCC and privatized data collected directly from ISPs, or via private sources. Statistics about speed and performance averages comes via M-Labs, which is the speed test utility integrated into our site as well as Google search results. Our research team has manually sourced pricing and service data on 109 broadband packages within the Austin market as of 2021.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 800 people in Lander County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

In Lander County, approximately 6,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Austin

Data from our market research team suggests that some of the common ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their home broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which easily consumes one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
