Internet Access in Santa Clara, New Mexico

Santa Clara features a total of 7 broadband providers marketing home service. Including business Internet, there are 10 serviceable providers available locally, such as XFINITY from Comcast and TWN Communications. (Some may be "double entries" as many providers advertise home and smb service under separate branches.)

The data listed here is sourced from FCC reports. Coverage data is validated using private databases to create more detailed listings than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Speeds and pricing data is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans every year. We've gathered 250 Santa Clara Internet plans from 2014–present, with 24 Internet deals currently on the market in the area.

Taking a look now at network tech with significant infrastructure already built within the Santa Clara area, the most common hardwired broadband technology options are Cable (96.74 percent coverage) and DSL (96.98 percent coverage). Cable connections are marketed by cable television providers, leveraging their preexisting coaxial cable networks. Cable can often make sense for local residents because of the strong mix of speed and value. Phone companies are the main source for DSL Internet service, because DSL transmits Internet data over phone wires. As copper wires go, the twisted and bundled copper construction seen in telephone wires outputs slightly less bandwidth compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.

Viasat Internet is the most common overall, covering near one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available for about virtually one hundred percent of local residents. The fastest speed advertised for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. As a rule, anything above 10 Mbps is sufficient to view standard definition video on WiFi, but is likely to become challenging when multiple users try to use modern services like Google Hangouts, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming.

Data Caps on Santa Clara Internet Plans

Internet providers have moved to increase the use of data limits onto consumer Internet plans in recent years. The trend is certainly true in Santa Clara, with ISPs like Xfinity selling capped plans. This might not matter for most customers, but it might affect households who upload a large amount of high-def content. Data caps on cable bundles tend to be in the neighborhood of one Terabyte, which is a problem for fewer than 1% of customers. XFINITY from Comcast customers in Santa Clara are advised to verify data use policies when signing up.
