Internet Access in Tarentum, Pennsylvania

Currently, there are 5 Internet service providers in Tarentum with home service. Including business ISPs, there are 12 Internet providers available locally, such as GTT Communications.

According to the latest government reports, 7.31 percent of households (700 residents total) are limited to only one choice for home residential broadband service.

Taking a look now at network technology installed in the city, the most frequently available wired broadband Internet tech options are Cable (99.28 percent coverage) and DSL (72.41 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet service, because they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Tarentum-area customers of cable companies like XFINITY from Comcast often select it due to the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) DSL Internet service is transmitted over phone lines, and is sold by companies such as Verizon High Speed Internet that build or own copper phone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone lines has slightly less bandwidth compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.

Viasat Internet offers the largest coverage area for Tarentum residents. They are available to close to one hundred percent of Tarentum addresses. HughesNet is also a common choice, providing virtually one hundred percent of the area with Satellite broadband service. HughesNet's fastest package in Tarentum is 25 Mbps.

Coverage data found here comes via FCC data, which compels Internet companies in Tarentum to submit deployment and subscriber data biannually. Using direct relationships with ISPs nationally, BroadbandNow is able to further verify public data against private data reported by Internet providers directly. Between 2014–2021 our data team has crunched 4,806 data rows on Internet coverage in Tarentum. Our speed averages are calculated based on actual speed tests from Tarentum from M-Labs.
