Taking a look now at network technology installed across the area, the most prevalent wired Internet tech types are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and Fiber (close to one hundred percent coverage). Cable Internet is marketed by cable television providers, leveraging already-built TV network connections. Fort Howard-area subscribers to cable ISPs such as XFINITY from Comcast usually pick it because of the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.) Fiber uses more modern fiber-optic transmission lines, which are composed of tiny, thin glass strands which can transmit digital data as light. Fiber provides stronger speed and uptime, although it may switch to slower copper cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Copper technology can slow speeds, but they are still usually faster than cable/DSL.
XFINITY from Comcast is the most common overall, registered with coverage in near one hundred percent of Fort Howard residents. Verizon Fios, in contrast, has registered coverage for close to virtually one hundred percent of the population. Plans are available in excess of 25 Mbps with both providers. This speed meets the FCC minimum to be considered "broadband" service and is sufficient for streaming Netflix. XFINITY from Comcast also has business Internet service in Fort Howard.
