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.

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

Approximately 92% of Oelwein residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

As of this month, 50662 is the zip code with the fastest average download speed in Oelwein.

Zip-based speed averages are calculated from M-Labs consumer speed tests run by IP addresses in the area.

Data Caps on Oelwein Internet Plans

Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" to their home broadband plans in recent years. This trend is certainly true for Oelwein, with Internet choices like Mediacom featuring capped plans. It's not a major concern for most customers, but can be an issue for subscribers who consume a lot of high-def content. Data caps for cable bundles tend to be in the neighborhood of one Terabyte, which is way more than 99 percent of customers use. Potential Mediacom Cable customers in Oelwein should double check data limits before signing up. Do not presume them based on online statements.
