The takeaway is that Fayetteville's broadband infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in US cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, but only two choices since most houses are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service.  This pattern has a logical cause. Broadband providers are former television and landline phone companies. So, they use existing infrastructures for delivering broadband Internet services. Fiber has been expanding as an alternative, and while not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" connections, 71.99 percent of Fayetteville has access to fiber that reaches at least as far as a box near the property line.
