Internet Access in Geraldine, Montana

Geraldine has 6 residential Internet Service Providers, and 10 if you include business and mobile. There are 5 broadband choices, most likely DSL.

DSL has lots of coverage in comparison to other types of wired broadband in Geraldine since pretty much every house in Geraldine is connected to telephone wires — the DSL wire reaches the subscriber from utility poles outside, which continues to a modem attached to the phone jack inside to complete the connection for home Wifi.

Coverage from the two most common providers, Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

85.64 percent of the Geraldine area is still left with only one or zero options for Internet service as of 2021. Accounting for all census blocks in city limits, the average resident can find at least 2 Internet providers available. Areas with more choices usually see reduced prices and stronger performance as providers are incentivized to improve network infrastructure to earn customers.
