Alternative ISP to Frontier for outside town?

I live on Steep Hollow Circle off 1179. When I bought my house in 2016, Frontier DSL was the only option.

Of late, my service seems to be getting very much noticably slower. I just ran a couple of different checks and both were < 2 Mbps down. Which is terrible.

I looked at Brazos WiFi, and my house is in the "Maybe, maybe not" zone on their coverage map.

Rise Broadband says they're available at my address. Supposed 50 Mbps is available, which would be an improvement.

Starlink is the new satellite service.

Anyone have any experience with any of these? Any other options I'm missing?

Brazos Wifi if you can get it.

We have Rise and I have no real complaints. We stream all tv, and have multiple devices on it, and we rarely ever have speed problems. The only times we have had issues was during the icepocalypse, and the severe weather a year or 2 ago, but they refunded the days we didnt have service. We also occasionally lose service during severe storms when line of sight is impeded. We live between Tabor Rd and OSR (Dick Elliott). Couldnt get Brazos Wifi out here.

But worth a call to Brazos Wifi to see if you can get it.

It's worth buying a tower for Brazos WiFi

I'm out on vacation this week but the office can definitely check the address.

We would be happy to check the address, of course.

Give us a ring tomorrow at the number below.
