Internet Access in Roxbury, Vermont

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) has the strongest coverage footprint in Roxbury. HughesNet is also widely available.

DSL providers such as TDS Telecom deliver broadband service via telephone lines. This explains why DSL is marketed through telecom corporations that also offer telephone service. DSL is available to 96.21 percent of area addresses. Transmitters and copper lines that deliver DSL service don't offer the same bandwidth as fiber/cable lines. The reason this matters is: reduced local speeds. The Roxbury current average download rate is a modest 47.1 Mbps as a result, under the 78.5 Mbps state average speed.

Broadband competition for residents of Roxbury is high, with most households having 3-4 providers to choose from. Access isn't always spread out equally. A surprising 61.51 percent of addresses in the area are still limited to one option.

TDS Telecom is another commonly available Internet option for Roxbury. They offer primarily DSL connections with coverage in 93 percent of the area. VTel Wireless is another alternative wireless service to 89 percent of the local area. Keep in mind that this option requires roof access and line of site with a VTel Wireless access point.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Roxbury

Data from our researchers suggests that popular ISPs in the area use data caps on home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue lately because subscribers see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers maintain they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
