Internet Access in Alvarado, Texas

Information here is calculated based on biannual FCC provider coverage reporting. We leverage direct provider coverage reports and other privatized data to validate that data down to the census block level. Plane and pricing information is gathered manually by our data division. We have collected and verified 317 broadband plans in Alvarado in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,920 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

DSL Internet providers connect customers to Internet services via phone infrastructure, which is why it is sold through companies that bundle Internet access with phone connections. DSL Internet is available to 74.82 percent of Alvarado homes. The twisted copper wires delivering DSL service have limited bandwidth compared to those used for cable or fiber, resulting in low overall download speeds. The Alvarado local average download rate is 35.89 Mbps as a result, beneath the 169.1 Mbps state average download speed.

Broadband competition available for Alvarado is relatively strong. The majority of households have around 7-8 Internet providers available to them. Access isn't distributed equally, however — as a surprising 26.07 percent of area residents still have only one or fewer options for true broadband services.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Alvarado's most common wired broadband providers.

Besides the Internet options detailed above, Rise Broadband is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in close to one hundred percent of the Alvarado area. Fixed wireless companies like Nextlink Internet are also sometimes a good choice, but the main wired options are usually a better value so far as performance and price.

  • There are 19 internet providers in Alvarado with 12 of those offering residential service
  • Alvarado is the 137th most connected city in Texas ahead of Venus and Grandview, but behind Joshua, Burleson, and Keene.
  • The fastest zip code in Alvarado for July 2021 is 76009. (see all below).

Internet Statistics 2021

5,000 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Alvarado is the 137th most connected city in Texas ahead of Venus and Grandview, but behind Joshua, Burleson, and Keene.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 18,000 people in Johnson County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber Availability: 10% of people living in Alvarado have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 74% of Alvarado residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

As of this month, 76009 is the zip code with the fastest average download speed in Alvarado.

Zip-based speed averages are calculated from M-Labs consumer speed tests run by IP addresses in the area.

In Johnson County, approximately 20,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Caps in Alvarado

Data collected by our researchers shows that many of the common providers in the area currently place a limit on streaming on residential broadband packages. Data caps are controversial since users see them as a tactic to limit video streaming, while providers insist that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hour.
