To summarize, Eastaboga's broadband infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many Alabama cities and towns: widespread coverage of bundled cable and DSL, but limited choice since most houses are limited to only one option for either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a logical cause. Broadband Internet companies started as TV and phone companies. So, they use pre-existing wired networks on utility poles to deliver broadband service.
