To summarize, Newport's broadband infrastructure follows a common pattern in US cities: wide coverage for cable and DSL, but limited choice since a majority of residences are limited to one option for setting up either type of Internet service.

So, they already own conveniently pre-built wired networks on telephone poles for delivering broadband Internet services.
