Internet Access in Kearney, Nebraska

FCC Form 477 datasets are the primary source for the Internet availability information highlighted on BroadbandNow. Since 2014, we've processed 26,645 rows of governmental and private data about Internet access in Kearney. Averaged speed information is based on 177,045 public speed test records collected in a 12 month rolling period.

Frontier Communications is an second choice to the primary providers, serving Kearney with 90 percent availability and a maximum speed of 24 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only way to get Internet access for residents of Kearney. fixed wireless outfits such as Rise Broadband are able to deliver 15 Mbps over wireless hardware. Satellite is not a common option for customers within city limits due to data use limits and lengthy contracts. Aside from home broadband, there are also 6 companies in city limits offering enterprise and business/smb subscriptions such as point-to-point connectivity. The small business providers listed above include all providers with business plans online, although some providers offer both home and business broadband.

Considering network technology with significant infrastructure already built Kearney, we see that the most frequently available hardwired Internet tech varieties are Cable and DSL, with 92.48% and 90.02% respectively. Traditional cable TV corporations are the main source for cable Internet, since they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Telephone companies usually offer DSL service, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits Internet data via phone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted and bundled copper construction seen in phone lines outputs a lower bandwidth ceiling than newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.

In summary, the majority of Kearney residents have 5-6 choices for home Internet, which is higher thanaverage in Nebraska.
