Getting Ready to Move to Nebraska

Internet Services in Nebraska
High-speed Internet access is important for just about everyone these days, whether you’re working from home, taking online classes, streaming movies and TV shows, or just keeping in touch with family and friends.
Fiber Internet, which is the fastest and most reliable type of Internet service, is available to about 37% of Nebraska residents, according to the FCC’s 2019 Broadband Deployment Report.
A strong Internet connection is especially important if you’re working from home or taking online classes.
If you need a high-speed Internet connection for work or school, fiber Internet is the best option. Fiber Internet plans typically offer speeds of 100 Mbps or higher, which is more than enough for most online activities.
Internet plans with speeds of 100 Mbps or higher are also good for streaming movies and TV shows, as well as for gaming online.
If you don’t need a lot of speed for your Internet usage, you might be able to get by with a slower Internet connection. Internet plans with speeds of 25 Mbps or less are typically considered to be basic Internet plans.
Home WiFi networks can be slow if there are a lot of people using the Internet at the same time, so it’s important to choose an Internet plan with a high enough speed to support all of your devices.
Having no data caps is also important, especially if you like to stream movies and TV shows or download a lot of data. Fast download speeds are also important if you work from home or take online classes.

How to Move Yourself
If you want to save money on your move to Nebraska or simply enjoy the feeling of having complete control over your belongings from point A to point B, moving yourself is a great option. Consider the following points before deciding to relocate:
- Do you really want your friends and family members to help you move boxes and furniture?
- Is it physically possible for you, your friends, and your family to move?
- What are your contingency plans in the event of severe weather or an accident?
Keep in mind that you may always hire local movers to help you at the start and/or finish of your trip.
Whether you move yourself or use a professional moving company, remember to save your receipts for your tax preparer. If you're relocating for work, see if your employer will cover your moving costs.
