Internet Access in Faribault, Minnesota

Data on this page is based on biannual FCC coverage reports. We leverage direct provider coverage reports and other privatized datasets to validate the data on a census block or lit address level. Plan and pricing data is collected manually by our data team. To date, we've collected and verified 390 broadband deals for Faribault since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,530 records as of 2022. 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.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the main Internet options in Faribault.

Broadband competition in the Faribault area is relatively high. Most households have at least 4-5 Internet service providers available in their area. Internet access isn't distributed equally, however. A surprising 20.53 percent of the population still have only one option.

Zooming in on the network technologies in Faribault, there are essentially two systems: cable and DSL (providers like CenturyLink).

Outside of the Internet options listed above, CenturyLink provides a third option for coverage in 98 percent of the Faribault area. Wireless providers like LTD Broadband are also worth considering. However, the incumbent wired options are usually a better value when it comes to speed and pricing.

Internet Statistics 2022

6,000 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Faribault

Data collected by our research team suggests that many of the popular providers in the area place a limit on data use for their home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since subscribers view them as a strategy to stop video streaming, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which can consume anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
