Internet coverage for rural areas

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

HughesNet starting prices are higher than average in Emeryville at $59.99/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Viasat starting prices are about average in Emeryville at $50/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Satellite internet is a less appealing option for many Emeryville 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 Emeryville may have access to fixed wireless internet service from HughesNet, with plans starting at $59.99 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 Emeryville DSL, cable, and fiber-optic internet providers.

Fiber and cable internet are similar internet service types, but fiber offers a few advantages over cable. Fiber internet can deliver faster upload and download speeds than cable in most areas, and is less vulnerable to slowed speeds during peak usage times. Cable does have the advantage over fiber in terms of availability, covering 89% of U.S. households compared to fiber’s 38%.

The only broadband internet type that requires a phone line is DSL and dial-up, which use phone lines to deliver service. Other internet types, such as cable, fiber-optic and satellite, require no phone line for broadband service.

According to the FCC, 93% of households have access to three or more providers. In many areas, a cable, DSL, satellite and possibly fiber-optic provider may be available. You are unlikely, however, to find multiple providers of the same internet type, such as two cable providers, in the same location because operating expenses in an area already served by another provider can be too high to be profitable.
