Internet Access in Plainview, New York

There are 7 broadband providers in Plainview offering home service. If you include business ISPs, there are 20 Internet providers available locally, such as Crown Castle Fiber and Windstream.

The data on this page comes via FCC coverage reports, and is confirmed using privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to output more accurate resources than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Information on pricing of current broadband plans is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans every year.

Looking at network technology available around Plainview, we see that the most widespread physical wire broadband Internet connection infrastructures are Cable (near one hundred percent coverage) and DSL and Fiber (99.37 percent coverage). Cable is marketed by cable TV companies, using preexisting coaxial cable networks. Plainview customers of cable Internet service providers like Optimum by Altice often select cable thanks to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.)

In terms of coverage options, the average household in Plainview has 3-4 companies serving their address, or exactly 3.55 providers in each census block.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread broadband option overall. They offer coverage for virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, has registered coverage to close to one hundred percent of the population. The top speed advertised for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. As a rule, anything over 10 Mbps will be sufficient for streaming SD videos on WiFi. However, it may become problematic when multiple people try to access high-bandwidth services like video chat, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming.
