Internet Access in Cortland, Nebraska

3-4 ISPs are available at the average Cortland resident. In context, this is a strong amount of choice in comparison to other cities. Competition often results in more affordable regional pricing.

Since FCC data is only collected twice annually and only published 6+ months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete. Our process incorporates availability data directly from some ISPs to help reduce the delay.

Viasat Internet or HughesNet are the main Internet choices in Cortland.

DSL providers such as Windstream deliver Internet service over telephone infrastructure, which is why it is marketed through telecommunication companies that also offer landline phone service. DSL Internet is accessible by 89.18 percent of area addresses. copper DSL lines have limited bandwidth when compared to those used for cable or fiber, resulting in reduced speeds in the area. The Cortland local average download speed is only 5.27 Mbps as a result, below the 114.83 Mbps Nebraska average speed.

Outside of the providers listed above, Windstream provides a third option for wired broadband in 91 percent of the Cortland area. Wireless providers like Diode Communications are also worth considering, but the main wired options usually offer a stronger deal when it comes to speed.

  • There are 11 internet providers in Cortland with 6 of those offering residential service
  • Cortland is the 223rd most connected city in Nebraska ahead of Firth, but behind Crete, Hickman, Wilber, and Beatrice.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Cortland

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the top providers in the area place a limit on data use on residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked because subscribers view caps as a strategy to stop video streaming. Providers insist that caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: streaming video, which easily uses 1–7GB/hr.
