TV companies are where customers look for cable home Internet, since they can leverage pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Sutton customers of cable Internet service providers such as Spectrum often pick cable thanks to the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber is composed of future-proofed fiber-optic cables composed of dense glass or plastic strands that can deliver binary data using light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to copper once in the "last mile." Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" speeds.

Outside of the Internet providers detailed above, Spectrum provides a third choice for coverage in virtually one hundred percent of Sutton.
