Our family-owned and operated business is such an established part of the Iron Range area that most of our customers are also our friends and neighbors. That means we’ll never treat you like just another number. Our number is local, just like us.

In addition to our hometown brand of service, we’re experts in satellite internet and satellite television. We’re proud to provide our customers with Viasat Internet (formerly Exede Internet), DIRECTV and Dish. But don’t take our word about the products we offer: Listen to your neighbors.

Intersat Communications is proud to offer Viasat Internet. Viasat leads the satellite internet industry with its ground-breaking technology, far superior to the slow DSL service many northern Minnesotans struggle with today. Powered by a high-capacity communications satellite, Viasat offers residents and small business owners super-fast internet speeds beamed directly to their location from space. We’ve chosen to offer Viasat exclusively for satellite internet because we know it’s a secure, reliable service backed by Viasat, a leader in satellite technology. All Viasat plans feature the same fast speeds, with different data options available depending on your online lifestyle. You can also save money by adding Viasat Voice, which typically costs a lot less than landlines from most phone companies.

Hibbing is a northern Minnesota community of about 16,000 located 90 miles south of the Canadian border and at the edge of the largest open-pit iron mine in the world. Founded in 1893 by iron ore prospector Frank Hibbing, a native of Germany, the early town site included a hotel, water and electric plants, a sawmill and bank. But in 1919, an ore mine company discovered the town was sitting atop a rich iron ore vein and paid for the community to move two miles south. The townspeople used horses, tractors and mining company equipment to move 188 buildings, rolling logs under the building and securing them with cables. Only one building- the Sellers Hotel – crumbled during transport. The always practical people of Hibbing used the hotel’s wood as a heating source the following winter. The Hibbing of today is a regional center for healthcare, retail, education and other services. While the community is relatively small, about 75,000 people live within an hour of Hibbing, making it a busy focal point. Bob Dylan grew up in the town, which still retains the strong, no-nonsense work ethic upon which it was founded.
