The average Bailey building can get access to broadband service from 1.84 companies.

The data on this page is primarily sourced via provider coverage reports, and is validated through private databases and direct provider reporting to output more useful results than governmental websites. Information about speeds and pricing of current Internet plans is generated by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points each year.

Taking a look now at network technologies installed across Bailey, we see that the most prevalent physical wire broadband connection varieties are DSL and Cable, with 97.63% and 83.18% respectively. Cable is marketed by former cable TV providers, using their already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Local customers of cable service providers such as Spectrum overwhelmingly select cable because of the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Telephone companies usually offer DSL service, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends data packets via phone wires. DSL is outperformed by all other major wired Internet infrastructures.

CenturyLink is a common second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet), serving Bailey with a top speed of 100 Mbps.

According to the most recent FCC data and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most commonly avialable Internet providers in Bailey so far as coverage. As the interactive map below demonstrates, these providers frequently overlap around Bailey.

Data Caps Around Bailey

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the popular ISPs in Bailey place some sort of limit on data use on residential broadband plans. Data caps are controversial since subscribers view caps as a tactic to limit video streaming, while providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can use anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
