Looking at network tech installed in the city, we see that the most frequently available hardwired Internet tech types are Cable (99.27 percent coverage) and DSL and Fiber (94.90 percent coverage). TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet, because they can re-purpose their pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Local customers of cable ISPs such as Optimum by Altice overwhelmingly pick cable because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.)

Since the majority of buildings come pre-wired for one phone (DSL) company and cable networks don't generally overlap, the average home in Rockaway has 2-3 wired broadband providers available to them. DSL and cable broadband services are likely to offer the most reasonable price for home use.

Coverage statistics on this page comes from FCC data, which requires Internet providers in Rockaway to report deployment and subscriber data biannually. By using direct relationships with Internet providers, we are able to verify this data with private data reported by telecoms. Our speed averages are calculated from actual speed tests from Rockaway in the M-Labs database.
