Internet Access in Clear Lake, South Dakota

For more sparsely populated areas such as Clear Lake, fixed wireless from towers and mobile LTE-type Internet services are the most prevalent broadband option. FCC records indicate no meaningful wired broadband Internet infrastructure availability for residential purposes, but fixed wireless Internet provides a decent replacement with availability for close to one hundred percent of the local population.

Interstate Telecommunications Cooperative is also a commonly available Internet choice for Clear Lake, offering Fiber service available to near one hundred percent of Clear Lake. RC Technologies is another alternative wireless service to practically one hundred percent of the local area.
