Internet Access in Thompson, North Dakota

DSL lines and Satellite are the most prevalent broadband technologies throughout Thompson, showing 89.84 percent and virtually one hundred percent coverage in the area.

We should note here that since FCC availability data is currently only collected biannually and only published 6+ months after that, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

The average Thompson customer has 2-3 Internet providers with availability at their building. Competition is good. It results in two providers competing so far as prices. This competition isn't distributed evenly, however — as a surprising 43.81 of residents still have only one option for true broadband Internet service.

CenturyLink is also a common Internet option in Thompson, offering DSL service with coverage in 89 percent of Thompson. Midco is another alternative wireless service for 60 percent of the local area. Keep in mind that fixed wireless needs roof access and proximity to a Midco tower or access point.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, registered with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, has availability for practically one hundred percent of residents. The fastest speed recorded for Viasat is 35 Mbps. HughesNet offers packages as high as 25 Mbps. In general, anything above 10 Mbps will be enough for streaming lower-quality SD video over WiFi, but becomes challenging when multiple people try to access modern services like Google Hangouts, cloud apps, and etc. Explore our coverage maps on this page to see how broadband coverage compares at the census block level.
