Internet Access in Hampton Virginia

3-4 Internet Service Providers, or "ISPs." are available for the average Hampton address. This is a lot of choice contrasted with other cities. Robust competition often results in lower regional pricing.

The data on this page is primarily sourced from FCC coverage reports, and is cross-validated with privatized data sources to create more accurate resources than is available from government websites. Address availability information isn't always available. Speeds and pricing data is generated by our data team, who gather thousands of plans every year. We've gathered 328 Hampton Internet plans since 2014, with 45 Internet or bundled plans currently active.

Taking a look at network technologies with significant infrastructure already built across Hampton, we see that the most common wired broadband Internet tech options are Fiber (92.15 percent coverage) and Cable (97.35 percent coverage). Cable is marketed by traditional residential television operators, leveraging their preexisting TV network connections. Hampton-area subscribers to cable companies such as Cox Communications usually pick it due to the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber infrastructure uses newer, more modern fiber-optic transmission lines made of hair-like glass strands that transmit digital data as light. Fiber Internet offers stronger speeds and uptime, although it may switch over to slower copper cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" performance.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most commonly available option for Hampton residents. practically one hundred percent of Hampton census blocks can receive access to them. HughesNet is the most likely second option, serving near one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest package we've seen for HughesNet in Hampton is 25 megabits per second download.

Besides the Internet options detailed above, Cox Communications provides a third option for coverage in 97 percent of Hampton.
