6.9 percent of the Kadoka area is still left with one or fewer choices for Internet service. Aside from these underserved blocks, the average resident will have 2-3 Internet providers to choose from. Areas that have more competition will get reduced prices and improved speed as providers will upgrade network infrastructure to win customers.
To summarize, Kadoka's Internet infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in South Dakota communities: widespread access to bundled cable and DSL Internet service, with the caveat that a majority of residences are limited to a single company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband service providers started as cable television and telephone corporations. So, they use pre-existing wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband service. Fiber is expanding as a third option. While not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" connections, 98.16 percent of the Kadoka area has access to fiber stretching at least to the street nearby.
