Internet Access in Fort Benton, Montana

Fort Benton currently has two common Internet service providers: Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat mostly offers Satellite service, with speeds up to 35 Mbps and availability in close to one hundred percent of the local area. HughesNet mostly provides Satellite, with availability for virtually one hundred percent of Fort Benton and advertise speeds up to 25 Mbps.

Wireless Internet options like LTE suffer from several big problems that make wireless options less than ideal for broadband Internet access. Data caps impose the biggest issue.

Most Fort Benton households have 2 providers that are able to service at their location. By Montana standards, this is a high level of competition. It means most customers have at least two companies competing on prices and service quality at a given address. This choice isn't universal, however. even in 2022, a surprising 88.71 of residents still have only one option for true broadband Internet access.

Since FCC data is processed biannually and only published 6+ months after that, providers listed may not include the latest expansions or regional changes. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce this lag.

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, Triangle Communications is also in the area with Fiber coverage in 95 percent of addresses and a maximum speed of 200 Mbps. Plans from companies like Landmark Wireless connect customers to as much as 12 Mbps via direct wireless hardware. See the interactive map below to see how many options residents have on the census block level.

  • There are 11 internet providers in Fort Benton with 9 of those offering residential service
  • Fort Benton is the 42nd most connected city in Montana ahead of Conrad, Chester, and Box Elder, but behind Great Falls and Belt.
