Taking a look now at network technology with significant infrastructure already built within the city, we see that the most prevalent wired Internet connection varieties are Fiber (54.47 percent coverage) and Cable (56.43 percent coverage). Regular cable TV companies are the main source for cable Internet and Wifi service, seeing as they can leverage pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Cable can often make sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber is built on more modern fiber-optic lines made of tiny, thin glass strands that can deliver digital data as light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to to copper connections once in the "last mile." Copper-based last mile connections slow speeds, but are still usually faster than cable/DSL.
