Overall, Carmel's broadband Internet infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in US cities: strong access to cable and DSL Internet service, with the caveat that most houses are stuck with a single provider for subscribing to either type of service. This pattern has a simple cause. Broadband outfits were started pre-Internet as TV and telephone corporations. So, they can use existing networks for delivering broadband Internet service. Fiber service has been slowly growing as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 95.94 percent of the area has access to fiber Internet stretching at least to the property.
