Broadband competition in Grant is overall strong. Most homes have around 5-6 Internet providers available in their area. Access isn't distributed fairly, however — as a surprising 33.8 percent of residents are still limited to one option for wired broadband services.
DSL providers deliver Internet services over telephone infrastructure. This is why DSL is sold through companies that bundle Internet access with telephone service. DSL network technology is serviceable to 87.72 percent of Grant. The twisted copper wires powering DSL don't have as much capacity as fiber/cable lines, which results in lower overall speeds. This is one of the reasons average download speeds in Grant perform under Nebraska, coming in with 41.64 Mbps compared to the 88.94 Mbps average download within Nebraska as a whole.
Outside of the Internet options detailed above, Great Plains Communications is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in 85 percent of the Grant area. Wireless companies like WirelessInet,LLC are sometimes a good choice. However, the main wired options are usually a better value so far as speed.
