Internet Access in Ranson, West Virginia

Coverage data shows two major broadband service types in Ranson — coaxial cable (virtually one hundred percent availability) and DSL (94.33% coverage). Coaxial cable Internet is provided through TV corporations using pre-existing copper coaxial TV cables on telephone poles. DSL is delivered over twisted copper phone lines. The vast majority of Ranson street addresses have access to both cable service and/or DSL from at least two companies.

Keep in mind, since FCC data is currently only collected biannually and only made public 6+ months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete.

The average Ranson customer has 2 Internet providers that can service at their location. Competition is good for consumers. It results in two providers competing on pricing and service quality. This high level of competition isn't distributed evenly, however — as a surprising 5.84 of the local population still has only one option for true broadband service.

XFINITY from Comcast is also a commonly available Internet option in Ranson. They offer Cable service with coverage in near one hundred percent of Ranson. All Points Broadband is another alternative wireless service for 91 percent of the area. Keep in mind that this option requires roof access or proximity to a All Points Broadband access point.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Ranson

Data collected by our market research team shows that many of the top ISPs in the area use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since customers see caps as a tactic to limit "cord cutting", while providers insist that data caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
