Internet Service in Kentucky

91.9% of Kentucky residents have wireline or wireless Internet at speeds of up to 10 Mbps available at their address, so high speed Internet is a possibility for most residents. In fact, more than 50% of Kentucky consumers have 3 or more ISPs serving their address, so competition in the market is reasonable.

However, the reality is that Internet options are less available in Kentucky than nationwide. Of the Internet technology in the Bluegrass State, DSL is available to 86.35% of the population, wireless Internet to 99.3%, cable Internet to 78.7% and fiber Internet to 10.6% of people. All of these represent percentages lower than the national average.

It’s no surprise that 34.2% of Kentucky residents are without an Internet connection to use.
