Internet Access in Plain City, Ohio

FCC Form 477 datasets are the core source of Plain City-area availability facts shown on this page. Since launching in 2014, we've processed 5,637 rows of governmental and private data about Internet availability in Plain City. Our data analysis team has manually gathered local pricing on 554 Internet and bundle plans in Plain City. We have a lack of meaningful speed test data for Plain City — only 196 total IP-verifiable records over the past year. For this reason, you should make note of official download speeds detailed above for local providers like Viasat Internet or HughesNet.

There's a strong amount of market choice between providers within Plain City, but 2,000 residents still don't have access to more than one provider. If these residents aren't satisfied with the quality of service, they have no option but to rely on a lower-grade wireless. However, this issue isn't widespread in Plain City. The average household has 3-4 Internet choices.

Cable and DSL are the dominant broadband network types within the Plain City area, frequently overlapping and generally competing with each other. Cable performance tends to be better, but big-picture metrics seen with either network system are comparable and which is "best" frequently varies depending on the network quality in a given area.

Coverage from the two biggest providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one in Plain City.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Spectrum also serves Plain City with coverage in 93 percent of addresses and a recorded top speed of 940 Mbps. Fixed wireless providers like Bresco Broadband can deliver 50 Mbps or more using wireless links. There are also 5 providers offering enterprise connections like T1 and MPLS.
