Internet Access in Humboldt, Kansas
Humboldt features only two dominent broadband network options to grapple with: coaxial cable (73.85% availability) and DSL (79.75% availability). Cable broadband is delivered by traditional cable TV companies via pre-existing coaxial TV lines on utility poles. DSL, similarly, is sent via phone lines.  The majority of Humboldt neighborhoods and census blocks have access to cable or DSL service from at least two ISPs.
Broadband competition for residents of the Humboldt area is high, with the average household having 4-5 Internet service providers available to them. Internet access isn't always distributed evenly, however — a surprising 20.55 percent of area residents are still limited to one option for true wired broadband service.
Keep in mind, since FCC data is only collected biannually and only published six months later, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help reduce the delay.
AT&T Internet is also a commonly available Internet option for Humboldt. They offer IPBB and Fixed Wireless connections in 79 percent of the area. KwiKom Communications is another alternative wireless service worth taking note of to virtually one hundred percent of Humboldt, although it has to have roof access or line of site with a KwiKom Communications access point.

Data caps are controversial because users see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers maintain caps are a necessary tool for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hour.
