Internet Access in Montevideo, Minnesota

Viasat Internet has the strongest coverage footprint in Montevideo. HughesNet is also widely available.

In terms of coverage options, the average Montevideo subscriber has 5-6 providers serving their location. Still, 24.52 percent of the Montevideo population are stuck with one or fewer options for residential Internet.

In terms of network tech available within the city, we see that the most common wired broadband tech options are Cable (77.56 percent coverage) and DSL (78.36 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV providers are where customers look for cable Internet service, seeing as they can re-purpose their pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone companies usually offer DSL service, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends digital data over telephone wires. DSL is outperformed by all major wired Internet infrastructures.

CenturyLink provides a common alternative, serving Montevideo with 78 percent local coverage and a top speed of 20 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only choice for Internet service for residents of Montevideo. fixed wireless providers like MVTV Wireless are able to achieve 50 Mbps via direct wireless links.
