Internet Access in West Hempstead, New York

The service and coverage information on this page is calculated based on FCC Form 477 datasets and verified against privatized files. Since launching in 2014, we have verified 3,260 rows of governmental and privatized data catalogues on Internet access in West Hempstead. We've manually collected pricing details on 247 home Internet plans in West Hempstead. The download speed calculation comes from M-Labs browser-based speed test data. Generally speaking, speed test-based datasets are a rough indicator of Internet performance, not a promise the real-world speeds customers will experience at addresses in West Hempstead.

Viasat Internet is the most common choice for West Hempstead residents. The company is available to close to one hundred percent of West Hempstead. HughesNet is also a common choice, with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest package listed by HughesNet in West Hempstead is 25 Mbps.

When we're looking at network technologies offered around West Hempstead, the most prevalent hardwired broadband technology types are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and Fiber (near one hundred percent coverage). Cable is sold by traditional cable television providers, leveraging preexisting coaxial cable networks. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber technology uses more modern fiber-optical cables composed of tiny, thin glass strands that transmit Internet data as light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to copper once in the "last mile." As a result, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" speeds.

Since most houses are only wired for one telephone provider and one cable provider, the average home in West Hempstead has 2-3 wired Internet options to choose from. DSL and cable broadband almost always provide the best price and data packages for home use.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Verizon Fios is also in West Hempstead with service in practically one hundred percent of residents and a recorded top speed of 950 Mbps. See the interactive map on this page to see broadband coverage at the census block level.
