Internet coverage for rural areas

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

Satellite internet from HughesNet and Viasat offers 100% availability in Harrisburg and surrounding areas. HughesNet starting prices are higher than average in Harrisburg at $49.99/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Viasat starting prices are higher than average in Harrisburg at $50/mo. for speeds up to 12 Mbps. Satellite internet is a less appealing option for many Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg may have access to fixed wireless internet service from HughesNet, with plans starting at $49.99 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 Harrisburg cable and DSL internet providers.

Cable internet will nearly always offer faster speeds than DSL, but typically at a higher price point. So if you’re shopping for cheap internet plans, DSL may be your better option but if you want speed, consider cable internet.

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.

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.

Upgrading your internet plan or switching to a new provider that offers faster internet service is the best way to get significantly faster speeds, but that will likely also come with a price increase. To get faster internet without changing your plan or provider, upgrade your internet equipment or reduce the number of devices connected to your network.
