Cable Internet access is usually provided via traditional cable TV providers using pre-existing coaxial television wires strung up on utility poles. DSL Internet is sent via landline phone lines. Most Clayton neighborhoods and census blocks can subscribe to coaxial cable or DSL from at least two ISPs.

Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Clayton

Data from our market researchers suggests that common providers place a limit on streaming for their residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since customers see caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain that they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which can eat up 1–7GB per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Clayton

Excellent Service and Support

Westelcom exceeded my expectations in Service, Support, and the Speed of the connection.

Streaming 1 day per cycle only before internet is capped

I can stream Netflix for a day and them the internet is reduced so much that Netflix won't even stream. I'm basically paying for 1 day of unlimited access and the rest of the month I'm watching DVDs. It's not worth it so I'm cancelling.
