Internet Access in Albany, Ohio

Albany Internet coverage data listed here is calculated based on FCC datasets. Then, we ensure the data is cross-validated against privatized databases. We've processed 2,271 rows of FCC data about broadband access in the Albany area. Speed averages are calculated from 211 speed tests within Albany.

Taking a look at network tech available the area, the most widespread hardwired broadband tech infrastructures are Cable (57.57 percent coverage) and DSL (91.68 percent coverage). Regular cable TV providers are the main source for cable home Internet service, thanks to the fact that they can leverage their existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL Internet service, since DSL sends Internet data over phone wires. As copper wires go, the twisted copper bundle construction of telephone wires has slightly less bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and fiber.

Frontier Communications is a common alternative to the primary providers. They offer a maximum speed of 24 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't actually the only option for Internet access in Albany. For example, fixed wireless companies like Intelliwave can achieve 25 Mbps over wireless links. There are 2 providers within the area marketing specialized enterprise and business services like T1. The small business providers listed on this page include all providers with explicit business services on their site.

Viasat Internet has the largest coverage area for Albany residents. The company is available to close to one hundred percent of Albany census blocks. HughesNet is the most likely second choice, serving virtually one hundred percent of Albany with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest Internet plan we've found for HughesNet in Albany is 25 Mbps.

To summarize, most Albany residents have 2-3 options for Internet. For Ohio, this is pretty much the norm. Albany ranks 864th as measured by the amount of broadband competition at local addresses.
