Internet Access in Black Hawk, South Dakota

Broadband competition in Black Hawk is above average in comparison to other South Dakota communities, with are 4.39 providers per census block on average. Black Hawk ranks 17th on the "most connected city" charts. Only 4.39 percent of the area have one or fewer options for Internet services.

Taking a look now at network tech in use within the area, the most prevalent hardwired Internet tech varieties are DSL and Fixed Wireless, with 86.16% and 51.28% respectively. DSL is transmitted by twisted copper telephone wires by service providers like CenturyLink that own phone lines. The twisted and bundled copper makeup seen in phone lines outputs slightly less bandwidth than more modern techs like cable and significantly less than fiber.

The data on this page is sourced from FCC filings, and is through private databases and direct provider reporting to provide more granular listings than is available from the FCC directly. Address-level analysis is currently only available for select ISPs. Speed and pricing data is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.

Midco is an alternative to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet). They offer 98 percent local coverage and a top speed of 1,000 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't actually the only option for Internet for residents of Black Hawk. For example, fixed wireless providers such as Western Communications can reach 30 Mbps over direct wireless hardware.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, covering close to one hundred percent of Black Hawk residents. HughesNet is available for around close to one hundred percent of the population. The fastest speed advertised for Viasat is 100 Mbps. HughesNet advertised packages up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed above 10 Mbps is enough for streaming SD video to devices on WiFi. However, it may become problematic for large households or modern services like video chat, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming. See the Internet availability maps below to see how Internet options compare down to the census block level.
