Internet Access in Turtle Lake, North Dakota

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Turtle Lake. HughesNet is also commonly available.

Since FCC data is tallied up twice a year and only published six months after, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

West River Telecommunications Cooperative is another commonly available broadband choice in Turtle Lake, offering primarily Fiber connections with coverage in practically one hundred percent of the area.

35.98 percent of Turtle Lake residents are cut off from choice for true broadband Internet service. This is not a shock, since competition between Internet providers is low. Locations in the local area usually have 1-2 choices for broadband service, accounting for the entire community.

When it comes down to choosing an broadband provider, fiber is the top-performing choice around Turtle Lake, for most customers. All broadband providers use fiber-optic cables to transmit data over long distances, but only true "Fiber to the Home" providers bring that fiber connection all the way to subscriber buildings. Other technologies in the listings above compete on pricing and flexibility rather than pure download and upload speeds.

Data Cap Issues in Turtle Lake

Data collected by our researchers suggests that popular providers in the area use data caps for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers view them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which easily consumes one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
