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 229 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 level of competition between broadband providers in China is overall strong, with the average household having 3 providers available in their area. Access isn't always spread out evenly, however — as a surprising 5.01 percent of area residents still only have one option.
AT&T Internet is another common broadband option in China, offering IPBB and Fixed Wireless connections in 96 percent of the area.
Viasat Internet 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.

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.
