Taking a look at network tech with significant infrastructure already built in the Loma Mar area, the most common hardwired broadband technology types are IPBB and Cable, with 30.73% and 97.92% respectively. TV corporations are where customers look for cable Internet service, thanks to the fact that they can use their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Loma Mar-area customers of cable service providers such as XFINITY from Comcast generally pick it because of the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.)

Data Caps Among Loma Mar ISPs

Internet providers have decided to add "data caps" to their home Internet plans in recent years. This trend is certainly true for Loma Mar, with local Internet choices such as Xfinity adding plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for most residents, but may be an issue for households who share their connection with multiple other household members or "power users" who download or upload a lot of HD or 4K video. Data caps with cable packages are usually around one Terabyte. This is way more than 99 percent of customers use. Potential XFINITY from Comcast customers in Loma Mar should confirm data caps before signing up.
