To summarize, Bethpage's Internet infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US cities: strong availability of bundled cable and DSL, with the caveat that a majority of houses or apartments are stuck with one provider for setting up either Internet service. This pattern comes from the fact that Broadband Internet service providers started as TV and landline telephone companies. So, they use pre-existing copper networks for delivering broadband services. Fiber has been slowly growing as a third option, and while some "Fiber" plans aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 99.28 percent of the area is covered by fiber Internet that reaches at least as far as the building property.
