Internet Access in Kingsley, Michigan

Information on BroadbandNow is based on the FCC's bi-annual coverage reports. Our data also includes direct reporting from providers to enhance that data down to the census block or lit address level. Plan, pricing, and other data on this page is aggregated by our market research team. We have aggregated 257 Internet plans in Kingsley in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 440 records as of 2021. 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.

DSL and cable are the main broadband network types in the Kingsley area. They are frequently overlapping and generally competing on service quality. Performance from cable tends to be better, but big-picture performance metrics of either type are comparable.

There is a strong amount of market competition between companies in the Kingsley area. However, 1,000 people in the area still don't have access to multiple providers. If these residents aren't satisfied with the quality of service, they have no choice but to rely on a less reliable wireless. However, this isn't the norm in Kingsley — the majority of households have 3 choices for Internet service.

Coverage from the biggest providers, Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As you might predict, the choice between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

Besides the Internet options listed above, CenturyLink provides a third option for coverage in 95 percent of the Kingsley area. Fixed wireless companies such as ATI Networks are also worth considering. However, the incumbent wired options are usually a better deal so far as performance and price.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Kingsley

Data collected by our research team suggests that popular ISPs in Kingsley currently place a limit on data use for their home Internet packages.
