To summarize, Staunton's Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Indiana cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, with the caveat that most residences are stuck with one option for either Internet service.

Data Caps Around Staunton

Data collected by our researchers shows that some of the popular providers place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since users see them as a strategy for limiting streaming. Providers maintain that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion.
