Plan, pricing, and other data is hand-gathered through our research team. We've collected and verified 176 Internet deals for Herington in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 23 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.
Broadband competition available for Herington is overall high, with the average household having 3 Internet service providers available to them. Internet access isn't spread out evenly, however. A surprising 17.19 percent of addresses in the area still only have one or zero options.
Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Herington's most common wired Internet options.
AT&T Internet is another commonly available broadband option in Herington. They offer IPBB and Fixed Wireless service available to 81 percent of the area.
So, looking at the big picture, Herington's broadband situation follows a similar pattern to other US towns and cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL Internet service, but limited options since most houses or apartments are stuck with one option for setting up either Internet service. This pattern comes from the fact that Internet providers were started pre-Internet as cable television and phone companies, and use conveniently pre-built wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet service.
