Overall, Trenton's broadband infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other Georgia cities: strong coverage for cable and DSL, with the catch that the majority of residences are stuck with one provider for either type of Internet service. This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband Internet companies are former TV and phone corporations, and use pre-existing networks for delivering their broadband Internet bundles. Fiber is growing as a third option, and while some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 75.05 percent of the Trenton area has access to fiber reaching at least as far as the street nearby. The local average download speed is 14.09 percent higher than the Georgia average, accounting for all cities. See the speed test results below to see how local Internet providers compare long term.

Data Cap Issues Around Trenton
Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the popular providers in the area use data caps on residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since customers view caps as a strategy to limit streaming services, while providers insist that data caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is streaming video, which can consume anywhere from 1–7GB/hour.
