DSL providers like Midstate Telephone Company connect customers to Internet service using copper phone lines. This is why DSL is purchased through telecom corporations that also offer landline phone connections. DSL Internet is available for 86.43 percent of the area. The twisted copper wires carrying DSL Internet have limited capacity compared to fiber/cable networks. The result: reduced speed and dependability. This is partly why average download speeds seen in Beach perform beneath the state average, clocking in at 23.46 Mbps, as opposed to the 73.3 Mbps weighted average data rate within North Dakota overall.
