Internet Access in Otho, Iowa

Information here is calculated from the twice-annual FCC coverage filings. We leverage direct provider reports to enhance that data.

Otho is the 407th most connected city in Iowa behind Fort Dodge, Humboldt, Eagle Grove, Manson, and Webster City.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

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

Fiber Availability: 41% of people living in Otho have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 80% of Otho 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.

In Webster County, approximately 2,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

Data Caps in Otho

Data from our market research team suggests that common ISPs in the area currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because consumers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which can consume one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
