Why do I have to chose an ISP? Doesn’t KPUD provide internet service?

KPUD operates a community-owned open access network. We provide the fiber infrastructure and wholesale internet to internet service providers (ISP) who use our infrastructure to provide the internet services to the community. Think of it like an airport, KPUD is the airport with different runways, gates, and terminals. The ISPs are the airlines that use the airport to provide customers with services. KPUD provides a competitive marketplace, so you're never locked into one ISP.
