Internet Access in Bulan, Kentucky
The average census block area in Bulan is serviceable by 2.74 Internet providers. This means that a majority of addresses in the area will have at least 2-3 choices so far as Internet, and it is easier for residents to change services if they are disappointed by a provider.
The packages listed above are manually gathered through our data science and research team.
Coverage from the biggest companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As residents might predict, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.
Spectrum as well as Windstream can also provide coverage in Bulan, often competing for the same customers.
The takeaway is that Bulan's broadband Internet infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other Kentucky cities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, except that the majority of residences are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact that Broadband Internet providers started as television and landline phone corporations. So, they can use pre-existing wired networks to deliver broadband Internet service.

Data Caps Around Bulan
Data collected by our research team suggests that many of the common providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming on residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers see caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
