Internet Access in Raven, Virginia

Cable infrastructure and DSL lines make up the most widely available wired broadband network types throughout Raven, featuring 95.30 and 77.33 percent availability respectively.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Raven's primary wired broadband providers.

Most Raven homes have 2 providers that are able to service at that address. This is a decent amount of competition. It tends to improve pricing at a given address. This competition isn't universal, however — as a surprising 25.96 of the local population still has only one or zero choices for true broadband services.

We should note that since FCC data is collected biannually and only published six months later, providers shown in the results might not reflect the most recent upgrades. Our process incorporates availability and plan data directly from some ISPs to help reduce the lag.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, Spectrum is also in the area with Cable availability in 95 percent of addresses and a maximum speed of 300 Mbps. Fixed wireless plans from brands like GigaBeam Networks can connect their customers to 50 Mbps or more using direct wireless relays. See the map on this page to compare broadband coverage at the census block level.
