Internet Access in Coon Rapids, Iowa

Satellite lines and DSL infrastructure make up the most common hardwired broadband networks present in Coon Rapids, featuring close to one hundred and 83.24 percent network reach respectively.

The average Coon Rapids customer has 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. This is a high level of market competition. It tends to improve prices and service reliability at a given address. This Internet access isn't universal, though. In fact, a surprising 28.75 of the local population still has only one option for true broadband Internet services.

Keep in mind, since FCC data is currently only tallied up biannually and only made public six or more months after, availability listed above might not include the latest network upgrades. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help fix this problem.

Windstream is also a commonly available Internet option in Coon Rapids. They offer DSL connections available to 83 percent of the area.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most widespread Internet option overall. They offer coverage for practically one hundred percent of Coon Rapids residents. HughesNet, in contrast, has availability to near one hundred percent of the population. The top download speed advertised for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps. HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed over 10 megabits per second (Mbps) will be sufficient to view standard definition videos on WiFi, but becomes problematic for large households or bandwidth-intensive apps like video chat and multiplayer gaming. Refer to the coverage map below to see how broadband coverage compares down to the census block level.
