Max locals who are able to get any sort of Internet service will pay a premium for it, since areas with only one choice don't incentivize companies to reduce pricing.

As a result of the lack of wired infrastructure, satellite broadband are the only technologies with widespread availability to most addresses in Max and the surrounding area.

Coverage from the biggest providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As a result, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one in Max.
