When we're looking at network tech available around Rocky Hill, the most frequently available hardwired broadband technology options are Cable and Fiber, with practically one hundred percent and close to one hundred percent respectively. TV companies are where customers look for cable Internet service, seeing as they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV cables — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Cable can often make sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber technology is composed of newer Fiber-optical lines composed of densely packed glass or plastic strands that can deliver Internet data as light. Some fiber connections switch to copper once in the "last mile." Copper technology can slow speeds, but they are almost always faster than cable or DSL.
Overall, the competition between Internet providers in Rocky Hill isn't high (2.25 companies registered in the average census block). It isn't much, but it's enough to create competition around price and service quality, which is good for consumers in well-wired neighborhoods.
