Internet Access in Princeton, West Virginia
3 Internet Service Providers, or "ISPs." can provide service to the average Princeton resident. In context, this is actually a lot of choice contrasted with similar-sized cities. Competition between two or more broadband providers in a city often results in better regional pricing.
The data listed here is primarily sourced from provider coverage reports specific to the area, and is against private databases to provide more useful resources than governmental websites. Speeds and pricing data is sourced by our research team, who collect tens of thousands of data points every year.
Frontier Communications is a common second choice, serving Princeton with a maximum download speed of 115 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only option for Internet access in Princeton.

The small business providers listed here include every local provider with explicit business packages on their website, but keep in mind that consumer-focused companies might have unlisted business packages as well.
Taking a look now at network technologies with significant infrastructure built within the Princeton area, we see that the most common hardwired broadband Internet tech types are Cable and DSL, with 84.25% and 99.39% respectively. TV companies are the main source for cable home Internet service, since they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Princeton-area customers of cable providers such as Suddenlink Communications often select cable because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) DSL is transmitted by twisted copper telephone wires on utility poles, and is sold by corporations like Frontier Communications that own copper phone lines. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted copper makeup seen in phone lines results in a lower bandwidth ceiling compared to more modern techs like cable and fiber.
According to the most recent FCC data and direct provider reports, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Princeton as measured by coverage. As the interactive map below demonstrates, the more common providers often overlap around Princeton.
