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. Cable is a common middle-of-the-road option that is a compromise between fiber's high speeds and DSL's low pricing.

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 Fiber also offer coverage in Poteau, often competing for the same customers.

The coverage data here comes from FCC data. ISPs in Poteau are required by law to submit coverage data biannually.
