Internet Access in Orleans, Nebraska

Orleans currently features two widely available Internet service providers: Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat is primarily a Satellite provider. They have speeds up to 35 Mbps and coverage for virtually one hundred percent of the population. As for HughesNet, they provide Satellite, with availability for close to one hundred percent of the area.

DSL-based Internet has lots of availability in comparison to other Internet options in Orleans because virtually all houses are wired with telephone lines — the acronym is short for "Digital Subscriber Line."

There's a decent amount of competition between providers within Orleans. However, 500 locals still don't have service from multiple providers. The consequence of this is that if they aren't pleased by their local provider, they are forced to use a low-speed wireless connection. However, this issue isn't widespread in Orleans. The majority of households have 3-4 choices for broadband-grade Internet service.

Rise Broadband and Frontier Communications also offer coverage in Orleans, with shared territory in some streets.

Coverage statistics on BroadbandNow comes via FCC data. Providers in Orleans must agree to submit availability data biannually.

Our speed averages are calculated from actual speed tests originating in Orleans households in the M-Labs database.
