Coverage data shows two main infrastructure choices in Radiant — coaxial cable (97.91% availability) and DSL (48.69% availability). Cable broadband service is generally delivered from TV corporations, using their pre-existing copper coaxial television cables mounted on utility poles. DSL Internet is delivered over phone lines. DSL is somewhat slower than cable service, especially for locations not able to access a cable or other wired second option.
XFINITY from Comcast is also a common Internet choice for Radiant, offering Cable connections in 97 percent of the area. VIRGINIA BROADBAND LLC offers an alternative wireless service for practically one hundred percent of Radiant. Keep in mind that it needs roof access or proximity to a VIRGINIA BROADBAND LLC tower or access point.

Data Caps and Video Streaming in Radiant
Data from our market researchers suggests that top ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since subscribers view caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers maintain that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is streaming services, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
