Information on BroadbandNow is calculated based on the FCC's bi-annual provider coverage filings.

Taking a look now at network technologies available around Holland, the most widespread hardwired broadband connection options are Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (92.26 percent coverage). TV providers are where customers look for cable Internet service, since they can leverage pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for Holland residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL Internet, which makes technical sense because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends data over telephone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone lines allows for slightly less bandwidth compared to newer wire types such as cable and significantly less than fiber.

Either way, the culprit is streaming services, which can consume 1–7GB/hr.
