There's above-average competition between providers in the Traer area, but 300 people in the area are still without access to multiple providers. If these subscribers aren't pleased with their local provider, they are forced to rely on a lower-grade wireless connection. However, this issue isn't widespread in Traer — the average household has 3 Internet choices.

In summary, Traer's broadband infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other US metro areas: strong access to cable and DSL, but only two choices since a majority of residences are limited to one company for subscribing to either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband providers are former cable TV and phone companies, and use legacy networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband service.
