Plane and pricing data is gathered manually by our research team. Locally, we've collected and verified 119 broadband plans in the area around Ronald since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,596 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.
Considering network technologies in use within Ronald, we see that the most prevalent physical wire broadband tech types are Satellite (virtually one hundred percent coverage) and Fiber (practically one hundred percent coverage). Fiber is built on future-proofed fiber-optic cables, which are made of tiny, thin glass strands that transmit digital data as light. Fiber provides stronger speed and uptime, but in some cases may switch to older copper cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. As a result, not all fiber connections offer true "gigabit" performance.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Ronald
Data collected by our researchers suggests that top ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because subscribers view them as a strategy to limit streaming, while providers explain data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: video streaming, which can consume one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
