We source coverage and plan data directly from many major ISPs to help reduce this lag.

In summary, Cobalt's Internet infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many Connecticut cities: widespread coverage of bundled cable and DSL, except that most houses or apartments are limited to one provider for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Broadband providers started as TV and phone companies, and use these legacy infrastructures for delivering broadband bundles.
