Internet Access in Terra Alta West Virginia

Terra Alta Internet coverage information on this page is derived from governmental data. Then, we ensure the data is cross-validated against privatized records. Since 2014, we've processed 3,352 rows of FCC and privatized data catalogues about Internet availability in Terra Alta. Our research division has manually collected provider pricing and terms on 256 Internet and bundle plans in Terra Alta. The speed averages originate from 285 speed tests from IP-verified users in Terra Alta.

Taking a look at network technology in use around Terra Alta, the most frequently available wired broadband Internet technology options are DSL and Satellite, with 83.20% and near one hundred% respectively. Telephone companies are the main source for DSL Internet, since DSL transmits data packets over telephone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper bundle construction of telephone lines allows for slightly less bandwidth than newer wire types such as cable and significantly less than fiber.

Frontier Communications is an alternative to the primary providers. They offer a maximum speed of 24 Mbps. Aside from residential broadband, there are also 2 companies within city limits offering enterprise and business technologies like T1 and MPLS. Our results include every provider with explicit business services online.

37.32 percent of households (1,000 residents total) are limited to a single choice for home Internet service.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most widespread Internet option on the whole, registered with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available for close to one hundred percent of the population. The top speed advertised for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. As a rule, any speed over 10 Mbps will be enough to stream lower-quality SD videos on WiFi, but becomes challenging when multiple users try to use modern services like Google Hangouts and multiplayer gaming. You can peruse our availability map below to see how Internet options compare at the census block level.
