Internet Access in Mascot, Tennessee

Mascot features only two major Internet service types: coaxial cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (75.49% coverage). Cable broadband service is generally provided through traditional cable TV providers using pre-existing coaxial television wires strung up on telephone poles. DSL, similarly, is sent via phone wires. The majority of Mascot neighborhoods and addresses have access to coaxial cable or DSL service from two alternating ISPs.

The packages displayed on this page are manually gathered through our research team. We have aggregated 305 packages in the area around Mascot since 2014.

There is above-average choice between companies within the Mascot area. However, 700 residents are still without service from more than one provider. The consequence of this is that if they aren't satisfied by the quality of service, they have to use a poor quality wireless option. However, this isn't the norm in Mascot. The majority of households have 3-4 Internet options.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, generally, will overlap. As residents might expect, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

Besides the Internet options listed above, XFINITY from Comcast is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in practically one hundred percent of Mascot.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Mascot

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common providers in Mascot use data caps on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue because customers see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the problem is video streaming, which can use one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
