Internet Access in Bloomfield, Nebraska

Bloomfield residences have an average of 2.55 ISPs available. This is a normal level of competition, seeing as the majority of Internet providers have their roots as cable television and phone providers. Most addresses are wired for both of these services.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Bloomfield's most common wired Internet choices.

DSL Internet providers deliver broadband services using phone infrastructure, which is why DSL is marketed through telecommunication companies that bundle Internet access with telephone service. DSL (standing for Digital Subscriber Line) network technology is serviceable to 68.95 percent of the local population. See the table below to get an idea of how advertised speed, latency, and etc align with user-tested performance in the area.

We should note here that since FCC data is only collected twice a year and only made public six months after that, availability shown here may not be complete. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce this lag.

While the main providers are Viasat and HughesNet, Great Plains Communications also serves the area with coverage in 79 percent of addresses and a maximum speed of 50 Mbps. Fixed wireless plans from brands such as Nextlink Internet connect their subscribers to as much as 50 Mbps via wireless hardware.
