XFINITY from Comcast is another common broadband option in Newport. They offer Cable connections available to 99 percent of the area.
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. This pattern comes from the fact that Broadband Internet outfits are former cable TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they already own conveniently pre-built wired networks on telephone poles for delivering broadband Internet services.
