Starry is currently available in a few major markets, including Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Denver, Columbus, and Washington, D.C. The internet provider, which launched in 2017, isn’t yet available in a lot of areas, but you can plug in your address on Starry’s website (if you live in one of the listed areas) to see if you have access to its service.

Plans for expansion

In July, Starry announced via press release that it would be expanding to Las Vegas next — launching in the latter half of 2022. “There is an urgent need for competition in the broadband industry and we’re excited to bring a new broadband service option to Nevada,” said Chet Kanojia, co-founder and CEO of Starry in the press release. “Most American consumers lack a choice in internet providers, leaving them with sky high bills for sub-par service, or worse, no broadband service at all because they can’t afford it.”

In 2019, Starry also announced that it had acquired more than 100 licenses for 24 GHz millimeter-wave spectrum to further expand its reach in the coming years. These licenses are in Tucson, AZ; Memphis, TN; and San Antonio, TX.

Ulta Home 5G Internet coverage

Because Ultra uses T-Mobile’s network, you’ll find it in many places you’ll also find T-Mobile — reaching tens of millions of homes. Ultra 5G home internet is available in major metro areas like New York and Los Angeles, but you can find a full coverage map here. You can also plug in your own address on Ultra’s website to see if you have access to 5G internet.  

Plans for expansion

Because Ultra hinges on T-Mobile’s network, its expansion plans are largely tied to the other company. However, because Ultra uses the cellular provider’s mobile network, there is a lot of availability already out there for Ultra to work with, which is why it’s already such a popular provider and readily available cross-country.
