Internet Access in Arlington, Minnesota

Information below is based on the FCC's bi-annual coverage reporting. We leverage direct provider coverage reports to enhance that data on a census block level. Pricing and plan data is gathered by our data division. BroadbandNow has collected and verified 241 broadband deals in Arlington in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 351 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Frontier Communications is also a common broadband option in Arlington. They offer primarily DSL connections with coverage in 90 percent of the area. Broadband Corp offers an alternative wireless service to virtually one hundred percent of the local area, although it has to have roof access and line of site with a Broadband Corp access point.

Competition between broadband providers in the Arlington area is overall high. The average resident has 5-6 Internet providers to choose from. Internet access isn't distributed evenly, however. A notable 31.17 percent of the population still only have one or fewer options for wired broadband service.

So far as the broadband network technology options in Arlington, you essentially see two primary systems: cable and DSL (think Frontier Communications).

According to the latest FCC data and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Arlington as measured by coverage. As the interactive maps below show, these ISPs frequently compete at addresses around Arlington.

Internet Statistics 2021

Arlington is the 240th most connected city in Minnesota ahead of Glencoe, Henderson, and Norwood Young America, but behind Le Sueur and Gaylord.

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

Approximately 1,000 people in Sibley County don't have access to any wired internet.

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

Approximately 69% of Arlington 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 Sibley County, approximately 5,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Caps Around Arlington

Data collected by our researchers suggests that top ISPs in Arlington place a limit on streaming on home broadband packages. Data caps are controversial since customers view them as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers insist that data caps are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming video, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
