Speeds and pricing data is sourced thanks to our research and analysis team, who collect tens of thousands of data points annually.

In terms of network technologies installed across the Colome area, the most widespread wired Internet technology infrastructures are Satellite (near one hundred percent coverage) and Fiber (99.20 percent coverage). Fiber is composed of more modern fiber-optic transmission lines composed of thousands of glass strands that can transmit Internet data using light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to coaxial cables once in the "last mile." Coaxial last mile connections hamper performance, but are almost always better than regular cable or DSL.

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, Golden West Telecommunications also serves the area with a top speed of 100 Mbps. See the interactive map below to compare how many options are available at a granular level.
