In terms of network tech in use within Addison, the most frequently available physical wire Internet connection types are DSL (99.14 percent coverage) and Cable (practically one hundred percent coverage). Television corporations are usually the source for cable home Internet, because they can utilize pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Addison-area subscribers to cable ISPs such as Xfinity often select cable thanks to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Telephone providers usually offer DSL service, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends digital information via telephone lines. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted and bundled copper makeup of telephone lines provides a lower bandwidth ceiling than more modern techs like cable and significantly less than fiber.
In terms of coverage options, the average home in Addison has 3-4 providers serving a given location, or exactly 3.43 Internet providers per census block.
Aside from HughesNet and Viasat, Xfinity also serves Addison with coverage for close to one hundred percent of census blocks and a maximum speed of 1,000 Mbps.
