This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband Internet providers are former TV and phone companies. So, they use these conveniently pre-built wired networks for delivering Internet services. Fiber service has been slowly expanding as an alternative. While not all "Fiber" plans are 100% "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 98.49 percent of the area is covered by fiber reaching at least as far as the street nearby. Thanks to market competition between providers around Fitchburg, the area's weighted average downstream speed is 3.70 percent ahead of the state average, accounting for all cities.
