The State of Broadband in Oregon, 2021

Written by the BroadbandNow team. Last updated 2/2/2021.

Oregon hovers in the middle ground in terms of internet connectivity as the 34th most well-connected state nationwide. Residents living on the west coast of Oregon experience the highest internet accessibility percentages in the state. Some counties have high coverage, while others do not have any coverage at all. This is at least partly due to the fact that some areas are very sparsely populated. On average, Oregonians experience download speeds of 122.5 Mbps, which is faster than the averages of a number of higher-ranking states.

The Digital Divide in Oregon

Access to the latest telecommunications technology is rarely distributed equally amongst populations, due to factors such as geography, infrastructure, and funding, thus creating a ‘digital divide’. In Oregon, the divide is quite deep since many residents are still without access to low-priced, high-speed internet services.

Currently, there are 241 internet providers in Oregon, and 92% of the population has access to a wired broadband connection with speeds of 25 Mbps or faster. Still, about 94,000 Oregonians don’t have access to any wired internet options. A wired internet connection capable of 25 Mbps speeds is not available to 301,000 people in Oregon, and another 407,000 residents only have access to one internet provider.

According to recent affordability data, Oregon lags behind many other states, with only 24.5% of its residents having access to a low-priced ($60/month or under) internet plan.

Best-Connected Cities

When weighing factors such as price, coverage, and speed, the cities with the best internet in Oregon are Adams, Adel, Adrian, Agness, and Albany, with the best listed first.

Worst-Connected Cities

On the other hand, the cities that offer the worst internet access in Oregon are Wolf Creek, Woodburn, Yachats, Yamhill, and Yoncalla, with the worst listed last.

Governmental Initiatives

The Oregon Broadband Mapping Project has been granted over $5.6 million from the federal government since 2010 to address the statewide digital divide. In 2014 a survey was completed to collect data on rates such as internet usage, broadband adoption, service availability, and user satisfaction.

Oregon’s broadband infrastructure initiatives have also been awarded another $20.5 million in federal grants to fuel local broadband expansion, some of which have been specially geared toward certain regions within the state.
