Internet Access in Barron, Wisconsin

Broadband competition is above-average in Barron in comparison to other parts of the state, with is an average of 3.33 providers available in each census block. Barron is currently the 220th most connected city in Wisconsin. As it stands, only 25.17 percent of Barron addresses have fewer than two choices for broadband services.

Cable Internet is sold by traditional residential television operators, leveraging preexisting coaxial cable networks. Barron customers of cable service providers like Spectrum often pick it because of the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.)
