Frequently asked questions

How do I transfer my internet to a new house?

What is the difference between fiber-optic and cable internet?

  • Network materials. Fiber internet usually runs on 100% fiber-optic cabling. Cable internet usually runs on copper wiring with some fiber optics mixed in.

  • Latency. Fiber optics have less latency (lag) than copper wiring. Copper comes with additional latency even when the overall network contains some fiber.

  • Speeds. Fiber easily achieves multi-gig internet speeds on the upload and the download. Cable download speeds top out around 1.2 Gbps, with significantly lower upload speeds.

  • Availability. Fiber internet to the home is a rapidly growing service. Cable internet to the home has been around longer, so it’s already widely available in urban and suburban areas.

What are the best internet options for rural areas?

The best internet options in rural areas include satellite, 5G, fixed wireless, and DSL. Keep in mind, availability varies by address.

  • Satellite. Offers max speeds up to 150 Mbps and is available just about everywhere. Usually comes with “soft” data caps (limited high-speed data and optional top-ups).

  • 5G. Offers the same max 5G speeds as mobile plans (around 300 Mbps), but on a separate line that includes home Wi-Fi. May come with soft data caps.

  • Fixed wireless. Offers max speeds around 250 Mbps. May come with soft data caps.

  • DSL. Offers max speeds around 100 Mbps, with speeds faster the closer you live to the service hub. Usually comes with unlimited data.

Movearoo internet partners in rural areas may include Kinetic Internet by Windstream (fixed wireless, DSL) and Verizon home internet (5G). Check availability now.
