Overall, Cedar Knolls's broadband infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US towns and cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, except that the majority of houses are stuck with one company for setting up either service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact that Broadband providers used to be television and phone companies. So, they use legacy wired networks on utility poles for delivering broadband Internet services. Fiber network access has been slowly expanding as an alternative, and while some "Fiber" plans aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 97.80 percent of the area is covered by fiber Internet stretching at least to the building property.
