broadband choice is decent in Middlesex, and the average Middlesex census block is served by 3-4 Internet providers. Averaged out across all areas in the city, that's exactly 3.44 service options in each household.
In summary, Middlesex's broadband infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other US cities: wide access to bundled cable and DSL service, but limited choice since most houses or apartments are stuck with one company for either type of Internet service. This pattern is normal because Broadband companies started as cable TV and landline phone companies. So, they can use these pre-existing networks for delivering their Internet bundles. Fiber network access is growing as an alternative. While some "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, 97.27 percent of the population is covered by fiber Internet stretching at least as far as the property.
