Data here is calculated based on the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reports. BroadbandNow also uses direct provider coverage reports and other private data to further validate and enhance the data on a census block or lit address level. Pricing and plan data is collected through our market research division. To date, we've found and verified 241 bundled broadband plans in Etna. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 628 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.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) and XFINITY from Comcast can also provide Internet service in Etna, with significant shared territory in some neighborhoods.

7.93 percent of the Etna area is still left with one or fewer choices for broadband-level Internet service. Outside these less connected blocks, the average address has at least 2 Internet providers available. Areas that have more competition usually will get lower prices, since providers will often upgrade service to win subscribers.

In summary, Etna's Internet situation conforms with a similar pattern to other US cities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, with the catch that a majority of residences are limited to a single option for either service. [1] This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband providers have their roots as cable television and landline telephone companies, and use these pre-existing copper networks to deliver their broadband bundles.
