Internet Access in Woodruff, Wisconsin

Woodruff features only two major Internet technology choices to understand — cable (82.97% availability) and DSL (94.23% coverage). Cable broadband is delivered via TV providers, using their pre-existing copper coaxial television wires mounted on telephone poles or buried in the street. DSL is sent over phone wires. The majority of Woodruff neighborhoods and census blocks can subscribe to both cable and DSL service from at least two telecom companies.

There is above-average competition between Internet providers in the Woodruff area. However, 900 locals don't have access to more than one provider. The consequence of this is that if they aren't satisfied with their local provider, they are forced to compromise for a low-speed wireless backup. Thankfully, this isn't the norm in Woodruff — the majority of households have 3-4 options for broadband-quality Internet service.

Frontier Communications as well as Spectrum also offer Internet service in Woodruff, with overlap in some blocks.

The packages displayed here are collected manually by our research staff.
