Internet Access in Verdi, Nevada

Data surfaced on BroadbandNow is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reports. We leverage direct provider reports and other privatized datasets to further validate that data. Plane and pricing data is gathered manually by our data science team. We have analyzed and verified 188 bundled Internet plans in Verdi since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 3 records as of 2021. 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.

The average Verdi home has 2 Internet providers that can provide service at their address. By Nevada standards, this is a strong level of competition. It tends to improve prices and service reliability. This competition isn't distributed evenly, though. A surprising 14.47 of residents still have only one option for wired broadband Internet service.

Spectrum is another common Internet option in Verdi. They offer Cable connections available to 92 percent of the area. Sky Fiber offers an alternative wireless service for close to one hundred percent of the area, although it has to have roof access or line of site with a Sky Fiber tower or access point.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) or HughesNet are the main Internet choices in Verdi.

In summary, Verdi's Internet market follows a similar pattern to other US cities: wide coverage for cable and DSL Internet service, but limited choice since most houses are limited to a single company for either service. This pattern results from the fact that most Broadband Internet providers used to be television and phone corporations. So, they already own these conveniently pre-built wired infrastructures to deliver Internet service.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Verdi

Data collected by our research team suggests that some of the top providers currently use data caps on home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial since users see caps as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
