Internet Access in Traphill, North Carolina

The average residence in the Traphill area has 2.67 ISPs to choose from. This is a normal level of competition for the US, seeing as most companies that sell Internet have their roots as cable TV and phone providers, and most houses have long been wired for one of each.

Keep in mind, since FCC data is only collected biannually and only published 6+ months after, provider availability shown below may not include the latest expansions or regional changes.

Considering broadband technology types overall rather than specific local ISPs, there are basically two technology types in Traphill: fiber and cable. Fiber cabling is often used for replacing DSL networks, since replacing DSL telephone wires with fiber is often more cost-effective over the long term than maintaining the older DSL wiring. Even without considering cost, fiber also allows dramatically better download speed range (1,000 Mbps as opposed to the 5–15 Mbps or so DSL allows).

Wilkes Communications is also a commonly available broadband option in Traphill. They offer Fiber service in near one hundred percent of the area. Carolina West Wireless is another alternative wireless service worth noting for near one hundred percent of local residents. Keep in mind it has to have roof access or line of site with a Carolina West Wireless tower or access point.

Viasat Internet is the most frequently available provider overall, registered with coverage in near one hundred percent of Traphill residents. HughesNet has registered availability for near one hundred percent of residents. The fastest download speed recorded for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised packages up to 25 Mbps. In general, anything over 10 Mbps will be enough for streaming SD videos on WiFi, but is likely to become challenging for large households or high-bandwidth apps such as video conferencing and etc. You can explore the Internet availability map below to see Internet options at the census block level in Traphill.
