Top Factors to Consider When Shopping for Internet Service in Spokane

Data Caps in Spokane

Some of Spokane’s top providers have strict data caps and will charge overage fees if you use too much data in a given month. While the average data cap clocks in at around a terabyte and isn’t worth worrying about for the average household, they can be a serious problem for “power users” and cord cutters who do a lot of high-resolution video streaming on a daily basis.

Local Information

Broadband Roadblocks in Spokane

What if Spokane had a smart grid or municipal broadband network like Chattanooga? Unfortunately, Washington doesn’t allow municipal networks to provide telecom services. See this analysis for more information on local laws. The short version is: municipal broadband is off the table for Spokane unless state laws change.

Will Google Fiber Come to Spokane?

Google Fiber is not currently being considered for Spokane. In fact, Google Fiber seems to be slowing their nationwide expansion, focusing instead on advanced millimeter-wave wireless technologies they acquired from Webpass. Since these technologies can service an entire building with gigabit service for a relatively low upfront cost, it’s expected that the company will likely continue pursuing this service before spending more money on the high cost of fiber installation.
