The takeaway is that Stuart's Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in US towns and cities: widespread coverage of bundled cable and DSL Internet service, with the catch that most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. This pattern is normal because Internet companies are former television and phone corporations. So, they already own these pre-existing infrastructures for delivering their Internet service. Owing to the competitive broadband market within Stuart, the local average downstream performance is currently 6.07 percent higher than the state average across all cities.
