Poteau currently features two widely available Internet providers: Viasat Internet and HughesNet. Viasat mostly offers Satellite service, with speeds up to 35 Mbps and coverage for close to one hundred percent of the city. HughesNet offers Satellite. They have availability in close to one hundred percent of the area and reported speeds up to 25 Mbps.

In terms of technology options, Poteau has all three primary wired broadband varieties: fiber and cable/DSL. Generally speaking, Fiber is the most robust Internet technology, followed by cable, which is followed by DSL.

There's a strong amount of competition between companies within Poteau, but 1,000 residents are still without service from multiple providers. This means that if they aren't satisfied with their service from the incumbent provider, they are left with no option but to compromise for a poor quality wireless. Thankfully, this issue isn't widespread in Poteau — the average household has 3-4 choices for broadband-quality Internet service.

Windstream and Dobson Technologies also offer coverage in Poteau, often competing for the same customers.
