Internet coverage for rural areas

If you live in the heart of Vail, you’ll likely have options from DSL, cable, and fiber-optic internet providers. For those in rural areas or just outside Vail, however, satellite or fixed wireless internet may be the best internet option.

Satellite internet from HughesNet offers 100% availability in Vail and surrounding areas. HughesNet starting prices are significantly higher than average in Vail at $64.99/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Satellite internet is a less appealing option for many Vail residents, however, as service typically comes with high latency and low data allowances.

Fixed wireless is another popular internet option for those in rural areas. Those living in or just outside of Vail may have access to fixed wireless internet service from HughesNet, with plans starting at $64.99 and available download speeds up to 25 Mbps. Fixed wireless service is less likely to come with the high latency of satellite internet, but monthly data limits can still be an issue compared to Vail DSL, cable, and fiber-optic internet providers.

If you suspect your slow speeds are the result of your internet provider throttling your connection, the easiest way to determine if you’re being throttled is to perform two speed tests. Run the first test on your regular network, then run the second one on a VPN. If the two speeds are drastically different (and the VPN test was higher), your internet provider may be throttling your speeds.

Yes. Fiber-optic internet is a completely different technology than DSL or cable internet, and therefore requires a different type of modem. In many cases, you can get the required modem from your internet provider at no extra cost.
