Texarkana is the 876th most connected city in Texas ahead of Fouke and Hooks, but behind Texarkana, Nash, and Ashdown.

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

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

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

Approximately 98% of Texarkana 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.

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

Internet for Education in Texarkana

Economic development reports routinely find a increasing correlation between broadband access and enhanced education. At the college level, personal Internet access is practically a necessity as colleges like Texas A & M University-Texarkana in Texarkana switch to online platforms to share out-of-class work. Looking at 4,867 speed tests reported in the past annum at addresses within 2 miles of Texas A & M University-Texarkana campus, performance averages are close to 134.01 Mbps — considerably higher than the minimum connection speed needed for viewing video and operating hosted or communication platforms.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Texarkana

Data collected by our market researchers shows that some of the top providers in the area currently use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since subscribers see them as a strategy to stop "cord cutting", while providers explain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming services, which can consume anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
