Taking a look at network technologies offered around East Rockaway, the most common wired broadband technology types are Fiber (practically one hundred percent coverage) and Cable (near one hundred percent coverage). Traditional cable TV companies are usually the source for cable Internet and Wifi service, since they can use pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Local customers of cable Internet service providers like Optimum by Altice usually pick cable due to the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Fiber uses more modern Fiber-optical transmission lines, which are composed of tiny, thin glass strands that transmit Internet data using light. Thanks largely to fiber infrastructure, broadband average download rates in East Rockaway are 2.06 percent higher than the New York average. Fiber Internet results in stronger download rates and uptime, but may switch to coaxial wires in the "last mile" near subscribers. As a result, not all fiber connections offer "gigabit" speeds.

Since many houses come pre-wired for one telephone provider and one cable television company, the average home in East Rockaway has 2 wired Internet service providers to choose from (2.9 per census block). DSL and cable Internet services generally provide the most reasonable price for home use.
