Internet Access in La Crosse, Wisconsin

La Crosse service and coverage information on this page is calculated based on Form 477 data. Then, we ensure the data is cross-validated against privatized lit address files. We've processed 17,858 rows of governmental and privatized data on Internet access within La Crosse. Our research division has manually collected pricing data for 367 Internet plans in La Crosse. All download speed analysis is based on browser-based speed tests gathered in a 12 month time time span. Keep in mind that speed test data is a somewhat flawed indicator of network performance, not a promise the actual performance customers can expect at residences around La Crosse.

DSL and cable are the main broadband network types around the La Crosse metro area. They are frequently overlapping and generally competing with each other. Cable network speed tends to be stronger, but big-picture performance metrics we've recorded with either system are comparable.

2-3 Internet choices per block is a low amount of choice, but it's sufficient to drive price and speed competition in communities where providers overlap. As is evident in the interactive map below, options often changes from block to block.

Spectrum as well as CenturyLink also provide Internet service in La Crosse, often competing for the same customers.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option on the whole. They have Internet coverage for close to one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, has registered coverage to about near one hundred percent of local residents. The fastest speed advertised for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps. HughesNet offers as high as 25 Mbps. Anything over 10 Mbps is sufficient for streaming SD videos on WiFi, but may become problematic for large households or bandwidth-intensive apps like Skype and multiplayer gaming. You can peruse the coverage maps below to see how Internet options compare down to the census block level in La Crosse.
