Internet Access in Donnellson, Iowa

Information on BroadbandNow is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings. We also use direct provider reports to enhance the data. Pricing and plan data is collected through our research division. Locally, we've analyzed 276 Internet plans in Donnellson in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 302 records as of 2021. 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.

Windstream is also a common Internet choice in Donnellson, offering DSL and Fiber service available to 99 percent of the area.

DSL Internet providers like Windstream connect customers to Internet services using copper phone lines on utility poles, which is why DSL frequently comes through telecommunication companies that also offer phone service. DSL is available for near one hundred percent of area addresses. copper DSL lines have limited capacity when compared to fiber/cable infrastructure, which results in lower overall speeds. This is partly why weighted average speeds in Donnellson are below the state, coming in with 21.58 Mbps compared to the 69.32 Mbps average data rate in Iowa.

79.59 percent of Donnellson is currently without a choice for true broadband Internet service. This isn't a shock, seeing as competition between Internet providers is not strong. Addresses in the local area have an average 1-2 choices for broadband service.

Data Caps and Video Streaming in Donnellson

Data collected by our market researchers shows that some of the top ISPs in Donnellson use data caps on home Internet connections.
