Internet Access in Magnolia, North Carolina

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Magnolia. HughesNet is also widely available.

As of recent government reports, 63.05 percent of Magnolia residents are limited to only one choice for wired broadband, or none at all.

CenturyLink provides a common second choice, serving Magnolia with a top speed of 60 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only choice for Internet service in Magnolia. fixed wireless providers such as Eastern Carolina Broadband, LLC can reach 25 Mbps via wireless hardware.

Looking at network tech with significant infrastructure already built around the city, we see that the most prevalent physical wire broadband connection options are DSL (84.30 percent coverage) and Cable (34.26 percent coverage). TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet, since they can re-purpose their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for Magnolia residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL connections, which makes technical sense because DSL sends data via telephone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone wires has lower speeds and bandwidth compared to cable and fiber.

Broadband coverage insights here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are based on a mix of government data from the FCC and privatized datasets we source directly from industry sources, or via private third parties. Averaged statistics about speed averages is sourced via M-Labs. The BroadbandNow research team has manually gathered package pricing and plan details on 230 broadband offerings in Magnolia to date.

Data Cap Issues in Magnolia

Data from our researchers suggests that many of the common providers in the area currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because subscribers see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
