Internet coverage for rural areas

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

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

Monthly costs for internet can range from $20 to $60, depending on which providers are available in your area. Added fees for Wi-Fi service and equipment can add to that cost, but your internet provider may give you the option to use your own router, which can lower the monthly internet cost.
