Among the local options, Fiber-based service is generally the stronger network type, and currently has 98.28 percent coverage within the area. Fiber Optics coverage is responsible for establishing the high average speed in Ashland — 198.18 Mbps according to aggregate download speed test results — which is currently 13.66 percent ahead of the state average.

2-3 providers per address is a low amount of broadband competition, but it's sufficient to reduce pricing in blocks with provider overlap. As is clear in the map below, Internet availability often changes depending on location.

Data Cap Issues in Ashland

Data from our market research team suggests that some of the popular ISPs in Ashland place a limit on streaming on residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue lately since subscribers view them as a tactic for limiting streaming services. Providers maintain they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hour.
