Internet Access in Danville, West Virginia

Danville features a total of 7 Internet service providers (ISPs) with residential service. If you count business ISPs, there are 12 companies overall, such as Shentel and CenturyLink. (Some might be "doubles", since many providers advertise home and business service separately.)

The data on this page is primarily sourced from FCC reports. Data is enhanced against privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to output more useful results than is available from the FCC directly. Information on pricing of specific Internet plans is sourced by our research and analysis division, who gather thousands of plans annually.

So far as Internet availability, the average Danville household has 3 providers serving their location, or exactly 3.14 ISPs in each census block. Still, 19.93 percent of the Danville population have one option for Internet.

Considering network technology offered around the area, we see that the most common wired broadband tech varieties are DSL (96.07 percent coverage) and Cable (61.22 percent coverage). TV providers are the main source for cable home Internet, thanks to the fact that they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Local subscribers to cable companies such as Shentel overwhelmingly pick it because of the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Phone providers are the main source for DSL Internet service, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends data packets via phone lines. DSL is outperformed by all other major Internet technologies except dial-up.

According to the latest FCC data and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the largest ISPs in Danville so far as coverage area. These ISPs frequently cover the same addresses in most blocks around Danville.
