Internet Access in Grand Island, Nebraska

Viasat Internet has the most availability in Grand Island. HughesNet is also a common option.

In terms of Internet availability, the average home in Grand Island will have 6-7 providers serving their location, or exactly 6.75 providers in each census block. Only 1.27 percent of Grand Island residents have one or fewer options for home Internet service.

The data on this page comes via FCC reports. Data is enhanced using privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to provide more granular results than is available from government websites. Information about speeds and pricing of individual broadband plans is sourced by our research and analysis division, who collect tens of thousands of data points each year.

KDSI Internet Services provides an second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet). They offer practically one hundred percent coverage and a maximum speed of 6 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't actually the only choice for Internet in Grand Island. For example, fixed wireless providers like Hamilton.net can reach 25 Mbps or more via wireless technology. Outside of residential Internet, there are also 9 companies in Grand Island with specialized enterprise-level products and services like point-to-point connectivity or custom fiber loops. The small business listings above include all providers with explicit business services on their site, although some offer both home and business broadband.

To summarize, Grand Island's Internet infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other Nebraska communities: wide coverage for cable and DSL, with the catch that most houses are stuck with one company for either service. This pattern results from the fact that Broadband service providers have their roots as cable television and landline telephone corporations, and use these pre-existing networks to deliver their broadband Internet bundles.

  • There are 21 internet providers in Grand Island with 13 of those offering residential service
  • Grand Island is the 19th most connected city in Nebraska ahead of Wood River, Doniphan, Central City, Aurora, and Saint Paul.
  • The fastest zip code in Grand Island for July 2021 is 68801. (see all below).

Data caps are controversial since subscribers see caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that they are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: streaming video, which can eat up 1–7GB per hour.
