The takeaway is that Foxboro's broadband Internet infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many US cities and towns: wide access to cable and DSL service, with the catch that most houses are stuck with one company for either service. This pattern comes from the fact that Broadband companies are former TV and landline phone corporations, and use these existing networks on utility poles to deliver their broadband service. Fiber network access is expanding as an alternative, and while some plans marketed as "Fiber" services aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 95.96 percent of Foxboro has access to fiber Internet that reaches at least to the building property.
