In summary, Temple's broadband market follows a common pattern in US communities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, with the catch that the majority of houses or apartments are stuck with one company for either Internet service. This pattern results from the fact that Broadband Internet companies were started pre-Internet as cable TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use legacy wired networks on utility poles to deliver their broadband services.
