The information listed here comes from FCC filings. Coverage data is cross-validated through private databases to create more accurate listings than is available from the FCC directly. Lit address information is currently only available for select telecom companies. Information about pricing and speed of specific Internet plans is sourced through our research experts, who collect tens of thousands of data points every year.

When we're looking at network technologies installed in the Stone Lake area, the most widespread wired Internet technology options are DSL (86.85 percent coverage) and Cable (59.96 percent coverage). Cable internet connections are marketed by cable TV providers, who use their existing coaxial cable networks. Cable often makes sense for local residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. DSL is transmitted by twisted copper telephone wires by service providers like CenturyLink that build or own copper phone lines. DSL is the slowest of all major wired Internet options.

As of recent government reports, 48.42 percent of households (700 residents total) have a single choice for home Internet service, or in some rare cases none at all.

Outside of the Internet options detailed above, CenturyLink is another option to consider. They have Internet in 86 percent of Stone Lake. Wireless options are available locally. However, the wired options detailed in the results above almost always provide stronger pricing. The vast majority of residents can get service from wired Internet.
