HughesNet predominantly sells Satellite, with coverage for near one hundred percent of the area and reported download speeds up to 25 Mbps.

Broadband competition in the Sandusky area is strong, with most households having 4-5 providers to choose from. Internet access isn't always spread out evenly — a surprising 22.75 percent of area residents still only have one option for true broadband service.

Cable TV and Internet and DSL Internet service providers like EarthLink are the top Internet service types with availability in Sandusky.

Keep in mind that since FCC data is only collected biannually and only published six months after filing, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

Fixed wireless providers such as Air Advantage connect customers to 20 Mbps or more using wireless relays. See the interactive map below to see how many options are available on a granular level.
