Internet Access in Smith, Nevada

The average census block area in Smith is served by 2.71 ISPs. This means that most houses in the area have at least 2-3 options for Internet, and residents can change providers when they are dissatisfied with a company.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet choices in Smith.

Keep in mind that since FCC data is only collected twice a year and only published six months later, availability shown here may not be complete.

Wireless technologies have a few notable issues, making wireless options far from affordable for broadband Internet service. Limited data use ("data caps") are the big one.

In summary, Smith addresses that for any reason can't access plans from HughesNet or Viasat Internet can still get wireless and mobile LTE options. See the map below for a granular overview of broadband competition. Speed test averages are also visualized by provider so you can compare Viasat and HughesNet download averages.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Smith

Data collected by our researchers suggests that popular ISPs in the area currently use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue because users view them as a tactic to limit video streaming, while providers maintain that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the issue is video streaming, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.
