Internet Access in Alder, Montana

The overall most commonly available wired Internet technologies in Alder are Satellite lines and Fiber and DSL networks. Satellite has a virtually one hundred percent spread, compared to Fiber and DSL's 94.06 percent penetration.

Keep in mind, since FCC data is currently tallied up biannually and only published 6+ months later, availability shown below might not include the latest network upgrades or regional changes. Our process incorporates coverage data directly from some companies to help reduce this lag time.

3 Rivers Telephone Cooperative is also a commonly available Internet choice in Alder, offering Fiber and DSL connections with coverage in 94 percent of Alder. WispWest.net is another alternative wireless service worth taking note of to 86 percent of the local area. Keep in mind that this option needs roof access or line of site with a WispWest.net tower or access point.

Most Alder homes have 2-3 Internet providers with availability for their address. This is a high level of market competition. It means most customers have at least two ISPs competing on pricing and service reliability. This choice isn't universal, though. A surprising 16.08 of residents still have only one or fewer choices for broadband service.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option on the whole. They have Internet coverage for virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, has registered availability to near one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed advertised for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed over 10 megabits per second is sufficient for streaming lower-quality videos on WiFi. However, it may become challenging when multiple people try to use bandwidth-intensive services such as video chat and multiplayer gaming. See the availability map on this page to compare Internet options at the census block level.
