Internet Access in Duluth, Minnesota

3-4 Internet Service Providers, or "ISPs." are available at the average Duluth resident. This is a strong amount of choice in comparison to other cities. Competition of two or more broadband providers in a city often results in lower regional pricing.

Viasat Internet is the most widely available option in Duluth. The provider is accessible for near one hundred percent of Duluth addresses. HughesNet is also a common option, with coverage in close to one hundred percent of residents with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan in Duluth is 25 Mbps download.

When we're looking at network technology available across the city, the most prevalent physical wire Internet tech varieties are DSL and Fiber (98.06 percent coverage) and Cable (78.87 percent coverage). Cable connections are marketed by traditional residential television providers, using existing coaxial cable networks. [1] Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong mix of speed and value.

CenturyLink provides an alternative. They offer 98 percent local availability and a maximum speed of 100 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only option for Internet access in Duluth. For example, fixed wireless providers such as AirFiber can reach 30 Mbps or more using direct wireless hardware. Outside of residential Internet, there are 7 providers in Duluth offering enterprise-level technologies like T1 and MPLS. We list every provider with explicit business services online, but consumer-focused companies often offer unlisted business plans as well.

The broadband availability statistics here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are drawn from a mix of governmental data and private data collected directly from telecom industry sources, or through private third parties. Statistics about speed and performance data is sourced from M-Labs. Our researchers have hand-sourced price on 516 Internet packages within Duluth to date.
