Internet Access in Michigan, North Dakota

The Internet availability data on this page is based on governmental databases. Then, we ensure the data is checked for errors against private databases. We've analyzed 2,102 rows of governmental and private data about Internet access in Michigan. There is currently limited speed test information for Michigan. Data is limited to 22 speed test recordings in the past year. For this reason you should look to the providers' advertised plan speeds in the listings above for local Internet providers such as Viasat Internet (formerly Exede).

Looking at less fortunate areas in Michigan, as many as 400 people are left with one or fewer choices for wired Internet.

Coverage from the biggest companies, Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As you might predict, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

As a result of the lack of wired Internet infrastructure, satellite Internet are the only services with widespread availability for most addresses in Michigan and the surrounding area.

While the main providers are Viasat and HughesNet, Polar Communications also serves Michigan with Fiber coverage for 96 percent of census blocks and a maximum speed of 1,000 Mbps. See the map on the page below to compare broadband coverage at a granular level, and the "Download Speeds" tab to compare how Viasat compares with other Michigan options in consumer speed tests.
