Internet Access in Alma, Colorado

Information below is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage reporting. We leverage direct provider coverage reports to further validate that data. Plane and pricing information on this page is hand-gathered manually through our market research team. To date, we've collected and verified 160 broadband plans in Alma in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 322 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Rise Broadband is also a commonly available broadband choice in Alma, offering mainly Fixed Wireless connections with coverage in 97 percent of the area. RTC offers an alternative wireless service for close to one hundred percent of local residents, although it needs roof access or proximity to a RTC tower or access point.

The majority of Alma households have 2 Internet providers to choose from. This is a high level of market competition. It results in two ISPs competing on prices and service reliability at a given address. This Internet access isn't distributed evenly, though. A surprising 100 of residents still have only one option for wired broadband Internet access.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet choices in Alma.

Fixed Wireless is the main kind of broadband with coverage around Alma worth considering. The lack of robust wired Internet services in Alma contributes to the poor download speed averages locally. Alma average download speeds rank 140.59% below the Colorado average. Thankfully, 12.12 Mbps can handle most common uses such as streaming Netflix. Data caps are common in Alma. Data limits will pose more of an issue for streaming video than speeds alone.

Internet Statistics 2022

900 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Alma is the 272nd most connected city in Colorado ahead of Frisco, but behind Dillon, Leadville, Breckenridge, and Fairplay.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 3,000 people in Park County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

In Park County, approximately 8,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Caps in Alma

Data collected by our researchers suggests that top ISPs currently use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because subscribers view them as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is video streaming, which can consume 1–7GB/hour.
