In terms of network technologies offered in the area, we see that the most common hardwired Internet technology varieties are Cable and DSL, with 99.01% and 97.11% respectively. Cable internet connections are sold by former residential television operators, who use their already-built coaxial cable networks. Elmira-area customers of cable service providers like Spectrum usually select it due to the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) DSL Internet service is delivered via phone lines, and is sold by companies such as Verizon that build or own copper phone lines. DSL is outperformed by all major wired Internet services except dial-up.

Since most houses come pre-wired for one telephone (DSL) provider and one cable company, the majority of Elmira residents have 2 wired broadband options available. 2.2% of the Elmira area have one or fewer choices. Regardless of alternative services available, DSL and cable Internet almost always provide the most reasonable price for home use.

Outside of the Internet options detailed above, Spectrum is a third option for coverage in 99 percent of Elmira. Fixed wireless companies like Greenlight Networks and satellite companies including are worth looking at. However, the main wired options usually offer a stronger value when it comes to performance and price.
