Golden Valley is also home to a large number of artists. Residents rely on their internet providers to further their careers and education and to market their artistic products and services. Compared with 90% of Minnesota, 100% of Golden Valley residents have access to high-speed internet.
Xfinity reaches 100% of homes with cable internet. Residents who prefer DSL can obtain the service from CenturyLink. Fiber optics have no reached the area yet, but residents do have a third option: satellite internet from HughesNet.
