DSL providers connect customers to broadband service using pre-existing telephone lines, which is why DSL is sold through telecom corporations that bundle Internet access with landline telephone service. DSL Internet is available for 90.91 percent of the area. copper DSL lines don't offer the same bandwidth as fiber/cable lines, resulting in lower overall speeds. This is one of the reasons average speed tests in Ajo are under the state, coming in with 8.31 Mbps, as opposed to the 129.73 Mbps average speed in Arizona overall.

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, Table Top Telephone Company is also in the area with DSL availability for 76 percent of census blocks and a maximum speed of 25 Mbps.
