Internet Service Provider Details for Rhode Island

The smallest state in the nation and one of the least populated, Rhode Island has just over a million people within its borders. Because of its small size, it's also one of the most densely populated which is great when it comes to internet access. Because of this, internet service providers have been able to invest heavily in the state's internet infrastructure, making the ability to receive internet access almost universal. Regardless of where in the state you call home, there should be multiple ISPs ready to help you connect your home to the web.

Because of its high population density, much of the state is going to have numerous internet providers available. For most consumers, a wired connection is going to be the preferred way of gaining internet access. This is due to wired lines like cable, DSL, and fiber having faster transmission speeds while also generally being more reliable. Physical connections do not have to deal with poor service due to bad weather like many wireless connections deal with. In addition, technology like fiber can produce some of the fastest speeds in the nation which is why the demand for fiber has skyrocketed. Even if fiber isn't available though, cable and DSL lines are often able to produce comparable speeds, capable of handling 99% of customers' needs.

A wired connection is not the only option though. If for whatever reason, a wired connection isn't available, or you just want to check your alternatives, there are multiple fixed wireless and satellite internet providers in Rhode Island. Satellite, in particular, is almost guaranteed to be available. Companies like ViaSat and HughesNet can connect in 98% of the country via their geosynchronous satellites. These connections have a higher latency than wired but can still handle almost anything you could throw at them.
