Viasat mostly offers Satellite service, with download speeds up to 100 Mbps and availability in virtually one hundred percent of the city. As for HughesNet, they market Satellite, with availability for close to one hundred percent of Waco.

Broadband competition in the Waco area is high. The average address has 6-7 Internet providers available in their area. Access isn't distributed equally, however — a surprising 5.13 percent of the population are limited to one option for true wired broadband service.

Since FCC data is only collected twice annually and only released 6+ months after filing, providers shown might not reflect the most recent upgrades or regional changes. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce the lag time.

Zooming in on the network technology options within Waco, there are essentially two primary systems: cable and DSL (providers like AT&T Internet).

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, Spectrum also serves the area with Cable service for 95 percent of census blocks and a recorded maximum speed of 940 Mbps.
