Internet Access in Chacon, New Mexico

Chacon currently has two widely available wired Internet service providers (ISPs): Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat mostly offers Satellite service. Their network has speeds up to 35 Mbps and availability in near one hundred percent of the population. As for HughesNet, they sell Satellite, with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of Chacon and reported speeds up to a maximum of 25 Mbps.

The average Chacon home has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. Competition is good. It means most customers have at least two providers competing so far as prices at a given address. This high level of choice isn't distributed evenly, though. even in 2022, a surprising 94.7 of residents still have only one option for true broadband service.

Remember that since FCC data is only tallied up biannually and only published 6+ months after that, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

DSL providers deliver Internet services using copper phone infrastructure, which is why DSL is marketed through corporations that historically offered telephone service. DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is available for 41.70 percent of Chacon. You can refer to the table on this page for insights into how marketed download speeds line up with actual speeds in the area.

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, La Jicarita Rural Telephone Cooperative also serves Chacon with availability in 63 percent of residents and a maximum speed of 20 Mbps. Fixed wireless providers like Choice Broadband can connect you to as much as 9 Mbps using wireless links.
