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. Keep in mind that it requires roof access or proximity to a RC Technologies tower or access point.

The majority of Clear Lake homes have 2 providers with service at their building. Competition is good. It tends to improve pricing and service reliability. This competition isn't universal, though. In fact, a surprising 100 of the local population still has only one option for broadband services.

Since FCC data is currently collected twice a year and only made public 6+ months after filing, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. Our process incorporates coverage data directly from many Internet providers to help fix this problem.

According to the most recent FCC filings, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the largest Internet providers in Clear Lake as measured by coverage. As the maps below show, the more common providers frequently compete at addresses in different blocks around Clear Lake.
