Internet Access in Akron, Ohio

According to availability data, the average household in Akron has access to 3-4 companies In context, this is a lot of choice in comparison to similar-sized cities in Ohio. Competition is correlated with lower regional pricing.

Taking a look at network technologies being used across Akron, the most prevalent wired broadband connection infrastructures are IPBB and Fiber and Fixed Wireless (88.08 percent coverage) and Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage). Regular cable TV corporations are where customers look for cable home Internet, since they can re-purpose existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Akron customers of cable providers like Spectrum overwhelmingly select cable because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.)

The broadband access data on this page is sourced from provider coverage reports, and is enhanced using privatized data sources to create more useful listings than is available from government websites. Speed and pricing data is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.
