Internet Access in Bridgewater, South Dakota

FCC datasets are the backbone of Bridgewater Internet availability facts listed here. Since launching in 2014, we've crunched 1,702 rows of governmental and private data about broadband availability within Bridgewater. We currently have limited speed test information on the Bridgewater area. We've only seen 64 IP-verifiable records over the past year. With this in mind, residents should look to the advertised download speeds in the listings above.

43.77 percent of Bridgewater is currently without a choice when it comes to true broadband Internet service. This is not an unexpected fact seeing as market competition between providers is low. Residences in the local area usually have 1-2 options for service.

Golden West Telecommunications is also a common Internet option in Bridgewater, offering Fiber and DSL connections with coverage in 75 percent of the area.

One issue with wireless Internet being the only major option for Bridgewater residents is that, compared to cable, wireless service provides lower speeds and data limits. wireless Internet isn't ideal for Roku streaming, video conferencing, and any bandwidth-heavy applications.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall. They have Internet coverage reaching virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet is available to practically one hundred percent of the population. The top download speed advertised for Viasat is 35 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised as high as 25 Mbps. Any speed over 10 Mbps will be enough to view standard definition videos to devices on WiFi. However, it may become an issue for multiple users or modern services such as video chat, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming. See the coverage map on this page to see how Internet options compare on a granular level.
