Internet coverage for rural areas

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

Satellite internet from HughesNet and Viasat offers 100% availability in Nevada and surrounding areas. HughesNet starting prices are significantly higher than average in Nevada at $59.99/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Viasat starting prices are significantly higher than average in Nevada at $50/mo. for speeds up to 12 Mbps. Satellite internet is a less appealing option for many Nevada 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 Nevada 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 Nevada cable, DSL, 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.

There are benefits to using your own router vs. buying or renting one from your internet provider, such as lower monthly costs and more product options. If you choose to use your own router, keep in mind that your internet provider’s tech support may not be able to fully assist you with your personal router. Select providers may not give you the option to use your own router.
