Internet Access in Sylvester, Texas

As is common for more sparsely populated areas such as Sylvester, fixed wireless from towers and mobile LTE-type technologies are the primary connectivity choice. FCC records and our privately reported data show essentially zero wired broadband availability at residential addresses. That said, fixed wireless is an acceptable replacement that is available to near one hundred percent of local residents.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Sylvester's primary wired broadband choices.

We should note that since FCC data is currently processed twice a year and only published six months after that, availability listed above might not reflect the latest upgrades. We source coverage and plan data directly from many major ISPs to help fix this problem.

Satellite provides backup Internet access options for residents who can't access cable or DSL service.

For a look at broadband competition around Sylvester, explore the map below. Averaged across all addresses, the average density of market competition is 1.76 companies per census block. This low level of competition leaves 100% of residents with only one provider.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting in Sylvester

Data from our researchers shows that many of the common providers place some sort of limit on streaming on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue lately since consumers see them as a tactic to stop video streaming. Providers insist data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the issue is over-the-top streaming, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
