HughesNet offers Satellite, with availability for close to one hundred percent of the area.

Cable TV and Internet and DSL Internet service providers like CenturyLink are the top network types with availability around Oelwein.

Since FCC data is tallied up twice a year and only published 6+ months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete. Our process incorporates availability data directly from many companies to help reduce this delay.

Most Oelwein homes have 2 Internet providers with service for that address. Competition is good. It results in two ISPs competing so far as pricing and service quality. This high level of choice isn't universal, however — as a surprising 9.86 of the local population still has only one or zero choices for broadband Internet services.

While the main ISPs are HughesNet and Viasat, CenturyLink is also in Oelwein with coverage for 95 percent of addresses and a recorded maximum speed of 60 Mbps.
