Overview of internet satisfaction and availability in North Dakota

North Dakotans are delighted with their internet, ranking 2nd over all states in internet customer satisfaction. A big reason for all these happy customers in the Flickertail State may be because the average household pays less than $60 a month on internet. Many cities like Fargo, Horace, and Jamestown have access to three or more different providers, giving customers options when it comes to choosing different internet plans. Customers can easily comparison shop for the best deal, and more competition keeps plan prices lower.

Internet providers received an average satisfaction rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars from customers in North Dakota.

That ranks North Dakota 2nd nationwide for internet customer satisfaction.
