Map shows cable/internet provider options at any address

Go to the site, type in your address, and it will list the “consumer providers” available at that address. I found this interesting and useful.

UPDATE: Even better, via Drew Leavitt, check out broadbandnow.com. More detail and, I suspect, more accurate.

    Thanks for this link, Dave. Very helpful. If only to see how few choices remain for way too many consumers.

  • It says I have two choices, but that’s wrong. There is no Comcast here and probably never will be. It’s not densely-populated enough here. And it says AT&T is an option which is only half-true. I have AT&T DSL but they stopped signing up new DSL customers around here years ago. If I moved to this area now, I’d have zero options.

      I live in a suburb of Dallas. 10 choices came up for me but only 2 serve my neighborhood.

    • Mo

      I’m told by both sites that I should be able to get FIOS service. Too bad it’s not true for my building, if not entire street.

        Wow, I know about where you are, this is quite surprising to me.

        • Mo

          It’s a bit of a posh neighborhood, full of million-dollar homes. I’ve been told by at least one repair tech that those who want FIOS here badly enough will generally pay for their own “last mile.”

            Ill never understand that. Ive been told that at some companies I have worked for. My reply? Fine, I’ll wait, it’s you who’s losing ALL the business. Lay that one line and you’ll have the whole development. It still took a couple of years but they eventually smartened up.

          • Mo

            But why bother, when you can keep getting special subsidies from your lickspittles in Congress without ever having to fulfill the buildout promises you made for them?

          • James Hughes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ”

            Actually his reply was “we need to see an interest” to which I said “if you build the infrastructure you’d get more interest”. I told him, you can start right here, we are interested! This was about 15 years ago. The more things change….

          • Mo

            Wow. How was he expecting to “see interest” in the first place if nobody knew there was a possibility of getting that service? What a maroon.

    • James Hughes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ”

      Why would they lay down DSL and not still branch off of it? Limited broadband available? Either way, that’s pretty awful. You must be really rural?

      • Mo

        DSL infrastructure is based on copper landlines, which most telcos are quietly allowing to fail.

        • James Hughes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ”

          Yup, they still have life in them and they are all over the place. Yet, the almighty buck rules.

          • Mo

            Superstorm Sandy was a windfall (pun!) for the likes of Verizon. Lots of incurred damage that likely converted customers to higher-cost services.

          • James Hughes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ”

            Even just three hours from you, where I am too.

      • It’s a one hour drive to Sacramento from my house. I’m just rural enough, though. People who live two miles from me have 50Mb up and down. But I live in an area just out of town where the properties are 3-10 acres. Beyond us it gets even more sparse so there’s no motivation for the ISPs to do anything. I have 2.5Mb down and 650k up. There is no upgrade in the foreseeable future.

        • James Hughes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ”

          10 years ago that’d be somewhat usable. But with the garbage they throw all over the place I.e. ads galore, that’s tough. Sorry to hear it. I hope something happens with these satellites that Elon Musk is considering.

  • lkalliance

    The first link had my existing provider; the second one didn’t.

  • And by “any address” you mean any address in the USA.

    Makes you realise how great the “much maligned” NBN model is in Australia. Wholesale government network with retailers on top of it. So we all effectively have access to dozens / hundreds of NBN providers. Pretty simple to switch too.

    It’s accurate for me, Comcast and Verizon. I guess some satellite too, but they are not competitive enough yet. Plus, I have zer experience with satellite and have no idea how reliable it is. Musk will change all that! Well, here’s hoping anyway.

  • The Cappy

    Cool. I have a choice of 5 providers in my area. Just down the same street, it’s 5 providers on one side of the street and 3 providers on the other side. Strange patchwork.

  • It listed one provider where I am now: AT&T. However, we are using Cox Cable service here. Strike One.

    I put in the address I’m moving to in Baltimore, and it said I have access to Comcast or Verizon, including Verizon FIOS. Went to Verizon and put in the address and they said no FIOS. Strike Two.

    I think I’ll pass on getting the third strike.
