Internet Access in Alexandria, South Dakota

There are 6 ISPs in Alexandria marketing home service, and a total of 8 including smb, enterprise, and mobile providers.

Taking a look at network technology available around the area, we see that the most common wired broadband technology infrastructures are Satellite (close to one hundred percent coverage) and Fiber (98.45 percent coverage). Fiber technology uses newer fiber-optic cables, which are composed of dense glass strands which can deliver digital data as light. Fiber network technology results in stronger speed, but in some cases may switch to older copper cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Copper-based last mile connections slow speeds, but they are still usually faster than regular cable/DSL.

The information on this page is primarily sourced from provider coverage reports. Data is confirmed against privatized databases and direct provider reporting to create more useful listings than governmental websites. Data on speed and pricing of listed Internet plans is generated by our data experts, who gather tens of thousands of data points each year. There are a total of 140 collected plans in Alexandria from 2014 to the present, with 30 Internet plans currently on the market.

The majority of Alexandria households have 2 wired broadband providers to choose from (2.17 per census block specifically). 99.5% of Alexandria residents — 1,000 people in total — are limited to one or fewer options. DSL and cable broadband services almost always offer the best pricing and data packages for home use.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option on the whole, covering practically one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available to approximately near one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed recorded for Viasat reaches 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed above 10 Mbps will be enough for streaming SD video on WiFi, but is likely to become problematic for large households or bandwidth-intensive services like Google Hangouts and multiplayer gaming.
