Internet Access in Lynchburg, Virginia

Cable and 5G Internet lines are the most widely available broadband network types in Lynchburg, showing 81.48 percent and 55.80 percent coverage.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet options in Lynchburg.

The average Lynchburg home has 2-3 providers to choose from. This is a decent amount of market competition. It tends to improve prices and service quality. This competition isn't universal, though. A surprising 12.93 of the local population still has only one or fewer choices for broadband Internet services.

Remember that since FCC data is only collected biannually and only published 6+ months later, availability shown here may not be complete. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce this delay.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Verizon also serves the area with coverage for 88 percent of addresses and a top speed of 15 Mbps. Fixed wireless providers such as SCS Broadband can deliver as much as 50 Mbps via direct wireless hardware. There are 3 providers offering specialized enterprise-level service like MPLS.
