Internet Access in Moses Lake, Washington

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) has the strongest coverage footprint in Moses Lake. HughesNet is also widely available.

When we're looking at network technologies available around the city, we see that the most widespread physical wire Internet technology varieties are DSL and Fiber, with 88.48% and close to one hundred% respectively. Fiber uses future-proofed fiber-optic cables composed of hair-like glass strands that transmit binary data as light. Fiber results in stronger speeds, although it may switch to coaxial wires in the "last mile" near subscribers. Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" speeds. DSL Internet service is transmitted via twisted copper telephone wires, and is sold by corporations such as CenturyLink that build or own copper phone lines. The twisted and bundled copper construction of phone lines has a lower bandwidth ceiling compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.

The average household in Moses Lake has 3-4 providers at a given address, or precisely 3.47 Internet providers in each census block. Only 5.26 percent of Moses Lake residents are limited to one choice for Internet.
