Overall, Franklin's Internet situation follows a common pattern in New York towns and cities: wide availability of cable and DSL service, but limited choice since most residences are limited to only one company for either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that Broadband Internet service providers have their roots as TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use these legacy wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet service. Fiber service has been expanding as a third option, and while not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 95.65 percent of the Franklin area has access to fiber reaching at least as far as the building property.

Data Cap Issues Around Franklin
Data collected by our research team suggests that top providers use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a tactic to stop "cord cutting". Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily consumes 1–7GB per hour.
