Traditional cable TV companies are the main source for cable Internet, because they can use existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Guttenberg-area customers of cable providers such as Mediacom Cable generally select it due to the combination of low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.)

Viasat Internet is the most common on the whole, covering virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet has coverage for about near one hundred percent of residents. The top download speed recorded for Viasat is 100 Mbps. HughesNet advertised packages up to 25 Mbps. As a rule of thumb, anything over 10 Mbps will be enough to view lower-quality video on WiFi, but may become challenging when multiple people try to use bandwidth-intensive applications like Skype and etc. Explore our availability map on this page to compare Internet options at the census block level.
