Fiber and cable are the primary technology options around the Glen Ullin area. Fiber providers will usually install a fiber cable for the full distance to a subscriber building, but in some fiber service areas the actual "Fiber" connection may switch to a coaxial wire at a telecom box at the sidewalk. Cable Internet is built on coaxial cable TV infrastructure for the "last mile" journey, only using fiber for long-distance transit of data.

Coverage from the two most common providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As residents might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.
