Internet Access in China, Texas

Data shown on this page is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings. Our data also includes direct reporting from providers to further validate that data. Plan and pricing information on BroadbandNow is hand-gathered by our data science team. To date, we've aggregated 225 broadband plans in China in the past few years. FCC Form 477 data is renewed biannually. However, it often appears here before governmental publications thanks to direct reports we receive from ISPs.

The average China home has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. Competition is good for consumers. It means most residents have at least two ISPs competing on prices and service reliability. This Internet access isn't distributed evenly, though. even in 2021, a surprising 6.32 of residents still have only one option for broadband service.

AT&T Internet is another common broadband option in China, offering IPBB connections in 98 percent of the area.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) or HughesNet are the most common Internet options in China.

In summary, China's Internet situation follows a similar pattern to other Texas cities and towns: strong coverage for cable and DSL service, but limited options since most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either type of service. This pattern has a simple cause. Broadband outfits have their roots as television and phone corporations. So, they use already connected wired networks to deliver their Internet services.

China is the 550th most connected city in Texas ahead of Beaumont, Sour Lake, Lumberton, Winnie, and Hull.

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

Approximately 5,000 people in Jefferson 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.

Approximately 94% of China 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.

In Jefferson County, approximately 15,000 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 Cap Issues Around China

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that top ISPs currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since users view them as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers insist they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which easily uses 1–7GB/hr.
