Plane and pricing data is collected manually by our market research team. We have collected and verified 369 Internet plans in the area around Kenton. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,286 records as of 2021.

BroadbandNow includes all providers with business packages on their site, although some providers can connect both home and business Internet.

Cable is the main Internet option with coverage in Kenton that residents should consider.

Data Caps Around Kenton

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the top providers in the area currently place a limit on data use on residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue lately because consumers see them as a strategy for limiting streaming. Providers maintain that data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: streaming video, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
