Internet Access in White, South Dakota

Consumers will find 9 Internet service providers (ISPs) operating in White. 3 of these are mobile LTE companies.

The average White customer has 2 providers that are able to provide service at that address. Competition is good for consumers. It tends to improve pricing and service quality at a given address. This high level of choice isn't universal, however. In fact, a surprising 49.58 of the local population still has only one option for wired broadband Internet access.

Since FCC coverage data is only collected twice a year and only published six or more months later, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. We aggregate coverage data directly from some Internet providers to help reduce this delay.

When considering networking technology types broadly speaking as opposed to particular companies, the two prominent service types are going to be cable or fiber. Fiber infrastructure is often used for replacing phone line-based DSL. Replacing DSL telephone wires with fiber is frequently cheaper over the long term than the alternative of continually servicing outdated copper DSL lines. Aside from expense, fiber also allows significantly better speed range (100 Mbps as opposed to the 5–15 Mbps or so DSL allows).

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) is the most common overall, covering virtually one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available to around practically one hundred percent of the population. The top speed advertised for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. As a rule, anything over 10 Mbps is sufficient for streaming standard definition videos on WiFi, but becomes an issue when multiple people try to use modern apps such as video conferencing and etc. You can explore our availability maps below to see how Internet options compare on a granular level.
