Internet Access in Crete, Nebraska

As it stands, there are 11 Internet service providers (ISPs) in the Crete area marketing home service, and a total of 17 including specialized smb, enterprise, and mobile providers such as Rise Broadband. (Some may be "doubles", since many providers sell residential service and enterprise service separately.)

So far as availability, the average household in Crete will have 5-6 companies at their address. Only 7.49 percent of Crete residents have one or fewer options for Internet.

The data listed here comes via FCC coverage reports, and is enhanced using privatized data sources to provide more useful results than is available from government websites. Information about pricing and speed of current Internet plans is sourced by our research team, who collect tens of thousands of data points annually.

Viasat Internet offers the widest availability in Crete. The company is available to near one hundred percent of Crete addresses. HughesNet is the most common second choice, providing virtually one hundred percent of residents with Satellite service. The fastest plan we've seen for HughesNet in Crete is 25 Mbps.

To summarize, Crete's broadband infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many US towns and cities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, but limited choice since most houses are limited to only one provider for setting up either service. This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband Internet service providers were started pre-Internet as cable television and landline phone companies. So, they use these pre-existing copper wired networks on utility poles to deliver their broadband Internet bundles. Fiber service has been slowly expanding as a third option. While not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 52.82 percent of the area has coverage by fiber reaching at least as far as the block.

  • There are 15 internet providers in Crete with 11 of those offering residential service
  • Crete is the 35th most connected city in Nebraska ahead of Milford, Hickman, Wilber, and Firth, but behind Lincoln.

Crete is the 35th most connected city in Nebraska ahead of Milford, Hickman, Wilber, and Firth, but behind Lincoln.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 600 people in Saline County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber Availability: 53% of people living in Crete have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 93% of Crete residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Saline County, approximately 1,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Internet Service for Educational Purposes in Crete

Economic development studies routinely highlight a large correlation between internet service availability and improved schooling. Broadband access is essentially a requirement as colleges such as Doane College-Crete migrate to web-based systems to distribute out-of-class work. Looking at 295 speed tests reported in the past annum at addresses within 2 miles of Doane College-Crete campus, performance averages are close to 86.42 Mbps — considerably higher than the minimum speeds needed for streaming video and interfacing with hosted or communication platforms.

Data Caps Around Crete

Data from our research team suggests that common providers in the area currently use data caps for their home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because subscribers view caps as a tactic for limiting streaming, while providers maintain they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.
