Internet Access in Corolla, North Carolina

Consumers have access to 12 Internet service providers (ISPs) in Corolla. 3 of these are mobile companies, and 4 offer wired or wireless residential broadband.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are currently the most common Internet choices in Corolla.

Most Corolla households have 2-3 providers that can service at their address. Competition is desireable. It means most residents have at least two companies competing on pricing at a given address. This competition isn't distributed evenly, however. even in 2021, a surprising 16.97 of residents still have only one or fewer options for true broadband access.

Remember that since FCC coverage data is collected twice a year and only published six or more months after filing, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

So, looking at the big picture, Corolla's Internet infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in North Carolina metro areas: strong coverage of cable and DSL Internet service, but only two choices since most residences are limited to a single option for either service. The cable/DSL pattern is normal because Internet providers have their roots as cable TV and telephone companies. So, they use these pre-existing copper networks to deliver broadband services. Fiber network access has been growing as an alternative, and while not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 56.27 percent of Corolla has coverage by fiber stretching at least as far as the property.

Data Cap Issues in Corolla

Data from our researchers suggests that top ISPs in the area place a limit on data use on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since users see them as a tactic to limit streaming services. Providers maintain caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
