We should note here that since FCC data is only collected biannually and only released six or more months after that, provider availability listed in the results above might not include the most recent network upgrades or regional changes. We gather availability data directly from some providers to help reduce the lag time.

One issue with wireless being the main Internet option is that, compared with wired broadband like cable, wireless offers lower speeds, higher prices, and data thresholds. wireless Internet is a bad choice for Roku streaming, Skype, and other bandwidth-heavy modern applications.

While the main providers are Viasat and HughesNet, Reservation Telephone Cooperative also serves the area with a top speed of 1,000 Mbps.
