The takeaway is that Mobile's broadband Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Alabama cities and towns: strong availability of cable and DSL service, but only two choices since a majority of houses or apartments are stuck with one option for setting up either Internet service. This pattern has a simple reason. Internet providers are former television and landline phone companies, and use existing wired networks for delivering broadband Internet service. Fiber network access is expanding as an alternative. While some "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, virtually one hundred percent of the area is covered by fiber that reaches to the block.
