In terms of network tech installed across the city, the most widespread physical wire broadband connection infrastructures are Fiber (94.41 percent coverage) and Cable (99.32 percent coverage). TV companies are where customers look for cable Internet and Wifi service, thanks to the fact that they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable can often make sense for Bohemia residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber uses more modern Fiber-optical cables, which are composed of densely packed glass strands that can transmit binary data as light. Fiber results in stronger download rates, but may switch over to coaxial wiring in the "last mile" near a subscriber. As a result, not all fiber connections offer "gigabit" performance.
