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 345 broadband plans in Alvarado in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,482 records as of 2022. 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 76.56 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 37.18 Mbps as a result, beneath the 197.25 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.
