94.42 percent of Epping residents are without a choice when it comes to broadband Internet service. This is not an unexpected figure, since market competition between Internet providers in the area is low. Residences in the city have 1 choices for service, accounting for the entire local population.

The issue with wireless being the only major option for Epping residents is that, compared with wired broadband like cable, wireless service offers lower speeds, higher prices, and data caps. This makes wireless challenging to use for Hulu, video chat, and other data-hungry apps.

Keep in mind that since FCC data is currently only collected twice annually and only released six or more months after filing, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. Our process incorporates availability and plan data directly from some major Internet providers to help reduce the delay.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Northwest Communications Cooperative also serves the area with a recorded top speed of 1,000 Mbps. Providers like Nemont Telephone Cooperative connect customers to as much as 2 Mbps via wireless relays.
