When we're looking at network tech installed in Ventnor City, the most prevalent physical wire broadband connection varieties are Cable and DSL, with 99.00% and 98.98% respectively. Television companies are where customers look for cable Internet service, because they can leverage pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Ventnor City customers of cable service providers such as XFINITY from Comcast overwhelmingly select it due to the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) DSL is transmitted by twisted copper telephone wires up on utility poles by providers like Verizon High Speed Internet that own copper phone wires. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper bundle construction seen in phone lines outputs a lower bandwidth ceiling than newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.

Overall, the choice between Internet providers in Ventnor City isn't strong (2.98 providers registered per census block). It isn't a lot, but it's sufficient to drive competition on price, which is good for those who live in more competitive parts of the city.
