Internet Access in Ashland, Illinois

Consumers have access to 12 Internet service providers (ISPs) in Ashland. 4 of these are mobile LTE companies and 8 offer wired or wireless residential broadband.

We should note here that since FCC coverage data is collected biannually and only published six or more months after that, availability shown here may not be complete.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Ashland's most widely available wired broadband options.

Competition between broadband providers in Ashland is overall high, with most homes having 3-4 providers available in their area. This choice isn't distributed fairly, however — a surprising 16.55 percent of residents still have only one option.

To summarize, Ashland's Internet infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other US cities and towns: widespread coverage of bundled cable and DSL, with the problem being that most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. This pattern is normal because Broadband Internet companies are former cable TV and landline phone companies. So, they already own conveniently pre-built wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband service.

Internet Statistics 2022

300 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 83% of Ashland residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

Data Caps in Ashland

Data collected by our market research team shows that common ISPs currently use data caps for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial because consumers see caps as a strategy to limit streaming, while providers explain data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming video, which easily uses 1–7GB per hour.
