Internet Access in Falls, Pennsylvania

According to FCC records, the average census block area in Falls is served by 2.01 Internet providers. This means that most households in the city will have a minimum of 2 options for Internet service, and many residents can switch service if they are disappointed with a particular company.

Considering network technologies being used across the Falls area, the most prevalent hardwired Internet connection infrastructures are DSL (96.20 percent coverage) and Cable (53.94 percent coverage). Regular cable TV providers are the main source for cable Internet and Wifi service, seeing as they can use their pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to Internet service. Falls subscribers to cable service providers like XFINITY from Comcast generally select it due to the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) DSL Internet service is transmitted via twisted copper telephone wires up on utility poles, and is sold by providers like Frontier Communications that own copper phone wires. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted copper bundle construction of telephone lines has lower performance compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.

Viasat Internet is the most commonly available Internet option in Falls. They are available to near one hundred percent of Falls census blocks. HughesNet is the most common second choice in the area, serving near one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan in Falls is 25 Mbps.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Falls

Data from our researchers suggests that some of the common providers in Falls use data caps for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked because consumers see them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.
