The information on this page comes via FCC reports, and is enhanced with privatized data sources to create more useful results than is available from the FCC directly. Speed and pricing data is sourced thanks to our research division, who collect tens of thousands of data points annually. There are a total of 359 Internet plans in Hinton from 2014 to the present, with 48 Internet plans currently available.

Looking at network technology installed in the area, the most frequently available physical wire Internet technology infrastructures are Cable and DSL, with 66.61% and 86.92% respectively. Cable Internet is sold by traditional residential television operators, who use their already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Local subscribers to cable providers like Suddenlink Communications usually pick cable due to the combination of low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Phone companies are the main source for DSL service, which makes technical sense because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits data over phone lines. DSL is outperformed by all other wired Internet services except dial-up.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Approximately 62% of Hinton residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Summers County, approximately 8,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Cap Issues in Hinton

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that common ISPs in the area currently use data caps for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers view caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers explain they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
