Internet Access in Carolina, West Virginia
Consumers have access to 10 Internet service providers (ISPs) in Carolina. 4 of these are mobile LTE providers, and 6 offer wired or wireless residential broadband.
We should note that since FCC availability data is tallied up biannually and only released six or more months after filing, providers listed below might not include the latest expansions or regional changes.
Frontier Communications and Viasat Internet are Carolina's most widely available wired broadband providers.
Competition between broadband providers in Carolina is relatively strong, with the average household having 3 providers to choose from. Internet access isn't distributed equally. A surprising 7.35 percent of households in the area still only have one option.
In summary, Carolina's Internet infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in West Virginia communities: strong availability of bundled cable and DSL Internet service, but limited options since most houses or apartments are stuck with one provider for either Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband outfits used to be cable television and phone corporations. So, they use these pre-existing copper wired networks on telephone poles for delivering broadband Internet services.
