Watrous locals who are able to get any sort of Internet service will likely overpay for it, since towns with only one option give providers no incentive to lower prices or improve service standards.

Fixed wireless is the top broadband option much of the Watrous population, and the only alternative to less ideal network options like satellite Internet. Our data analysis shows that 96.46 percent of the area has coverage for fixed wireless.

Viasat Internet is the most frequently available provider overall. They offer coverage reaching close to one hundred percent of Watrous residents. HughesNet, in contrast, is available for around near one hundred percent of residents. The fastest speed recorded for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps. HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. Any speed above 10 Mbps will be sufficient to stream standard definition video over WiFi, but may become an issue when multiple users try to use high-bandwidth apps such as Google Hangouts, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming.
