Sparta is the 608th most connected city in Wisconsin ahead of Norwalk, but behind Cashton, West Salem, Tomah, and Bangor.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 700 people in Monroe County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Approximately 73% of Sparta residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Monroe County, approximately 6,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Sparta

Data from our researchers suggests that popular ISPs in Sparta use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
