Internet Access in Ranger, West Virginia

Looking specifically at the technologies within Ranger, there are basically two primary systems: cable and DSL (think Frontier Communications).

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 87 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. Data caps are controversial since users view them as a tactic to discourage "cord cutting". Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
