Internet Access in Stanford, Montana

Information shown on this page is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage filings. BroadbandNow leverages direct provider reports and other private datasets to validate that information down to the census block or lit address level. Pricing and plan data is hand-gathered manually by our research division. To date, we've collected and verified 98 Internet plans in and near Stanford in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 11 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.

DSL from phone companies has lots of coverage in comparison with other Internet services around Stanford because virtually every house in Stanford is wired with telephone lines. Therefore, since most homes are wired with telephone wiring, it's no suprise that Stanford would have virtually one hundred percent DSL availability.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Stanford

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that top providers in the area place a limit on data use on home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because customers view them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain they are a necessary strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is video streaming, which can use 1–7GB per hour.
