So far as network options, fiber-optic or cable are pretty much always a prefferable choice for the average Alamance household . Fiber Optics is oftentimes built on top of DSL infrastructure. Fiber Internet service utilizes glass-packed fiber-optic cables to deliver data. Fiber Internet is digital, while cable and DSL are analog. Upstream speeds benefit the most from a fiber optics connection. Upload rates will usually be the same as downstream performance, unlike non-fiber Internet plans. (As opposed to cable or DSL, which have uploads reduced by around 1/10 of the downstream rate.)

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) as well as HughesNet also provide coverage in Alamance, often competing for the same customers.

AT&T Fiber is the most widespread Internet option overall. They have Internet coverage reaching virtually one hundred percent of Alamance residents. Spectrum is available for approximately near one hundred percent of residents. We've seen downstream rates in excess of 25 Mbps for both companies, which is sufficient to meet the FCC minimum to be considered "broadband", and is sufficient for streaming video content. You can explore our coverage maps below to see how broadband coverage compares down to the census block level.
