Internet Access in Ranger, West Virginia

There are 2.76 Internet providers per census block in Ranger. As a result, most addresses in Ranger will have at least 2-3 choices for Internet service, and residents can switch if dissatisfied with a local provider.

DSL providers like Frontier Communications deliver Internet services using telephone infrastructure. This is why DSL is marketed through telecommunication companies that bundle Internet access with landline phone connections. DSL network technology is available for 67.56 percent of Ranger homes. See the graphical tools directly below for insights into how the advertised speed, latency, and etc compare to actual speeds in the area.

We should note that since FCC data is only tallied up twice a year and only published six or more months after that, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. We collect coverage data directly from many major Internet providers to help reduce the lag.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet choices in Ranger.

Aside from the Internet options listed above, Armstrong is another option to consider. They have coverage in 80 percent of the Ranger area. Wireless companies such as King Street Wireless are also worth considering, but the incumbent wired options are usually a better value so far as speed and pricing.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Ranger

Data collected by our research team suggests that common ISPs in the area place a limit on data use on home broadband plans.
