The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 900 people in Clay County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

In Clay County, approximately 6,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Cap Issues Around Delta

Data from our market research team suggests that popular providers in the area place a limit on streaming on residential broadband connections. Data caps are controversial because consumers view caps as a tactic for limiting streaming services. Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
