Internet Access in Shipman, Virginia

Consumers have access to 11 Internet providers in Shipman. There are 3 LTE companies.

DSL Internet providers such as Verizon High Speed Internet connect customers to broadband service using copper phone lines, which is why it is sold through telecom companies that historically offered telephone plans. DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) Internet is available for 46.40 percent of the area. copper DSL lines don't have as much capacity as coaxial or fiber-optic lines, which results in reduced overall download speeds. This is partly why weighted average download speeds within Shipman are under the state, clocking in with 3.08 Mbps, as opposed to the 202.95 Mbps weighted average data rate seen in Virginia as a whole.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Shipman's most common wired broadband choices.

The majority of Shipman homes have 2-3 providers to choose from. Competition is desireable. It results in two providers butting heads on pricing at a given address. This high level of Internet access isn't universal, though. In fact, a surprising 86.74 of residents still have only one or fewer options for true broadband Internet access.

The Internet availability statistics here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are calculated from public government data from the FCC and private data we source directly from industry sources, or via private sources. Statistics about speed averages comes primarily via M-Labs, which is the speed test utility integrated into BroadbandNow as well as Google search results. The BroadbandNow research team has manually collected price and service data on 118 broadband plans and bundles within Shipman as of 2021.

Internet Statistics 2021

1,000 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Data Caps and Video Streaming in Shipman

Data from our market research team shows that many of the top providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since customers view caps as a strategy to limit streaming services. Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
