Taking a look now at network tech offered in Atwood, we see that the most frequently available wired broadband Internet tech varieties are Cable (practically one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (86.96 percent coverage). TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet, seeing as they can leverage existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Atwood customers of cable companies such as XFINITY from Comcast overwhelmingly select cable due to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Phone providers usually offer DSL Internet, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits digital information via phone lines. DSL is the slowest of all wired broadband options.
HughesNet is a common second choice to the primary providers, serving Atwood with a top speed of 25 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't actually the only choice for Internet access for residents of Atwood.

Data Caps in Atwood
Many Internet companies have been moving to increase the use of "data caps" to residential broadband packages as of late. This trend holds true for Atwood, with ISPs like Xfinity selling capped plans. This won't matter for most residents, but it may affect subscribers who share the WiFi or techies who consume a lot of HD or 4K video. Data caps on cable packages are usually around 1 Terabyte. This is a problem for fewer than 1% of customers. Potential XFINITY from Comcast customers in Atwood are advised to confirm data caps before signing up.
