Internet Access in Baker, Montana

Information below is calculated based on biannual FCC provider territory filings. Our data also includes direct provider reports to validate that data on a census block or lit address level. Pricing and plan data is aggregated manually through our data science division. To date, we've collected and verified 90 Internet plans in and near Baker since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 176 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.

Looking at less fortunate neighborhoods in Baker, as many as 400 people have only one (or zero) options for wired Internet.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, generally, will overlap. As you might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common in Baker.

Mid-Rivers Telephone Cooperative as well as T-Mobile Home Internet can also provide Internet service in Baker, offering near one hundred percent and 48 percent coverage in the city.

Fiber Internet is the most reasonable option for most customers in Baker. All Internet providers use fiber-optic cables to transmit data over long distances, but only true "Fiber to the Home" providers bring that fiber connection all the way to subscriber buildings. Other technologies in the listings above compete on pricing and flexibility rather than pure download and upload speeds.

Data Caps in Baker

Data collected by our market research team suggests that popular ISPs in the area place a limit on data use on residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since users view them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
