Internet Access in Lake Norden, South Dakota

Lake Norden offers 8 residential Internet Service Providers, and 11 if you include business and mobile. There are 5 choices for wired broadband ("wired" meaning technologies like cable, DSL, and fiber).

There is a decent amount of competition between providers around Lake Norden. However, 200 residents don't have access to more than one provider. This means that if they aren't satisfied with the quality of service, they are left with no option but to compromise for a low-speed wireless backup. However, this isn't the norm in Lake Norden — the average household has 4 Internet choices.

Fiber service and cable are the primary network types within Lake Norden. Fiber plans will usually stretch a fiber line all the way to the customer house, but in some areas the actual "Fiber" connection can change to coaxial or ethernet wire at a telecom box at the sidewalk. Cable Internet leverages coaxial cable TV lines for the "last mile" stretch near customers. Cable only uses fiber optics for data transit.

Coverage from the most common providers, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, in most cases, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

The Internet coverage statistics here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are based on government data from the FCC and privatized datasets we source directly from telecoms, or through private third parties. Statistics about speed data is sourced from M-Labs. The BroadbandNow market research team has hand-collected package price on 198 broadband offerings within Lake Norden as of 2021.
