Taking a look now at network technologies available around Holland, the most widespread hardwired broadband connection options are Cable (99.19 percent coverage) and DSL (92.26 percent coverage). TV providers are the main source for cable Internet, since they can leverage their existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for local residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone providers usually offer DSL Internet service, since DSL transmits Internet data via phone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper bundle construction of phone lines outputs lower speeds and bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and fiber.
