In summary, Bemidji's Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Minnesota cities: strong access to cable and DSL, with the catch that most houses or apartments are stuck with a single company for setting up either service. This pattern results from the fact that Broadband Internet providers started as cable television and landline telephone corporations. So, they already own pre-existing wired networks to deliver broadband bundles. Fiber is growing as an alternative. While not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" connections, close to one hundred percent of the area has access to fiber Internet reaching at least as far as the street nearby. Thanks to strong network competition in Bemidji, the area's average download speed is currently 9.17 percent ahead of the state average across all cities. See the speed test data directly below for information about how providers compare over time.
