Internet Access in Monroe, Wisconsin

Monroe features a total of 8 Internet service providers (ISPs) with residential service, and a total of 18 including specialized smb, enterprise, and mobile providers like Spectrum Business and Verizon Business. (Some might be "double entries", since many companies market home and smb services under separate branches.)

Taking a look now at network tech offered around the Monroe area, the most widespread physical wire Internet tech varieties are Cable (74.18 percent coverage) and Satellite (near one hundred percent coverage). TV corporations are where customers look for cable Internet, since they can utilize their existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Monroe customers of cable ISPs like Spectrum overwhelmingly pick it because of the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.)

So far as coverage options, the average home in Monroe has 4 providers at their address, or exactly 4.88 ISPs in each census block. Only 24.37 percent of Monroe residents have one or fewer options for residential Internet service.

The data listed here comes via FCC filings, and is confirmed with privatized databases and direct provider reporting to create more useful results than is available from government websites. Speeds and pricing data is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans annually.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall. They have Internet coverage for close to one hundred percent of Monroe residents. HughesNet, in contrast, has registered coverage to close to near one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed recorded for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed above 10 Mbps will be sufficient to view lower-quality SD videos on WiFi, but becomes an issue when multiple users try to use modern apps like Skype, cloud apps, and etc. Explore our availability maps below to see how Internet options compare at the census block level in Monroe.
