Internet Access in Rock Island, Washington

There are an average of 2.4 Internet providers per census block in Rock Island. This means that most households in Rock Island have at least 2-3 choices for Internet service.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the main Internet options in Rock Island.

Spectrum is another common broadband option in Rock Island. They offer Cable connections in 86 percent of the area.

Keep in mind that since FCC availability data is only tallied up biannually and only published six or more months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce the delay.

To summarize, Rock Island's Internet situation follows a common pattern in US towns and cities: wide coverage for bundled cable and DSL Internet service, but limited choice since the majority of houses are limited to one company for either Internet service. This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband providers have their roots as cable television and telephone corporations. So, they use these pre-existing infrastructures to deliver Internet service.
