The takeaway is that Globe's broadband Internet infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other Arizona cities: strong availability of cable and DSL, but limited options since most houses are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service. This pattern results from the fact that most Internet providers have their roots as cable television and phone companies. So, they use already connected wired networks on utility poles to deliver broadband bundles.
