Internet Access in Alma, Kansas

There are an average of 2.2 ISPs per census block in Alma. This means that the majority of households in Alma have at least 2-3 options so far as Internet, and residents can try a different provider if they are dissatisfied with a company.

CenturyLink is an second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet), serving Alma with a maximum speed of 60 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't actually the only choice for Internet access in Alma. fixed wireless companies such as WTC are able to offer 15 Mbps or more over wireless technology.

The data on this page comes from FCC coverage reports, and is enhanced against privatized data sources to output more detailed resources than governmental websites. Information about speeds and pricing of listed broadband plans is generated by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points each year.

Taking a look now at network technology installed across the area, we see that the most widespread hardwired broadband Internet technology varieties are DSL (86.75 percent coverage) and Satellite (virtually one hundred percent coverage). DSL service is transmitted via telephone wires on utility poles, and is sold by service providers like CenturyLink that own phone lines. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted and bundled copper construction seen in telephone wires allows for lower speeds and bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and fiber.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Alma so far as coverage. The more common companies often overlap around Alma.
