Internet coverage for rural areas

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

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

Wi-Fi connects your device to a router, but that router needs to be connected to the internet for your device to also be connected to the internet. You need an internet service provider to get Wi-Fi.

Resetting your router and optimizing your router settings can give you an instant speed boost. Consider Wi-Fi extenders if your signal is weaker in certain areas of your home. Also, be sure to check your Wi-Fi network to see if there are any unknown devices or users connected that could be slowing your network.

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%.

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.
