Internet Access in Okaton, South Dakota

The average Okaton household has access to Internet service from 1.26 providers.

The main issue with wireless Internet being the only major option for Okaton residents is that, compared to cable, wireless provides lower speeds, higher prices, and lower data caps. wireless Internet isn't ideal for video streaming, Skype, and any other high-bandwidth modern applications.

Golden West Telecommunications is also a common Internet option in Okaton, offering Fiber and DSL connections in 88 percent of Okaton.

Since FCC coverage data is currently only tallied up biannually and only released 6+ months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete. We gather coverage data directly from some companies to help fix this problem.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most commonly avialable ISPs in Okaton as measured by coverage. The more common companies often cover the same addresses in different neighborhoods around Okaton.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Okaton

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs in Okaton use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since consumers view caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers insist data caps are a necessary tool for managing network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hour.
