As is common for more sparsely populated areas like South Haven, fixed microwave Internet and mobile LTE-type Internet services are the primary broadband choice.

That said, fixed wireless provides a decent replacement available to 32.73 percent of the population.

61.24 percent of South Haven residents are without a choice when it comes to true broadband Internet service. This isn't a surprise since market competition between Internet providers is poor.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet are South Haven's primary wired Internet providers.

Remember that since FCC data is currently only tallied up biannually and only released 6+ months after that, availability shown here may not be complete.
