Data on BroadbandNow is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reports.

Plan, pricing, and other information on BroadbandNow is collected by our data analysis team. We have found and verified 75 Internet deals in the area around Ambrose since 2014. FCC data is updated twice a year. However, it generally gets posted here before governmental releases (for most providers, anyway).

100 percent of Ambrose residents are currently without a choice when it comes to true broadband Internet service. This isn't a surprise, since competition between the incumbent Internet providers in the area is low. Locations in the local area have an average 1 choices for service.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet are Ambrose's most common wired Internet options.

The issue with wireless service being the only major option is that, compared to wired broadband like cable, wireless offers lower speeds and lower data caps. This makes it challenging to use for streaming, Skype, and any other data-hungry applications.

Outside of the providers listed above, Nemont Telephone Cooperative provides a third option for coverage in 91 percent of Ambrose.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Ambrose

Data collected by our research team shows that many of the top providers in Ambrose currently use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers see them as a strategy to discourage "cord cutting", while providers explain they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can consume anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
