Since many houses come pre-wired for one telephone (DSL) provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Freeport households have 2 wired broadband providers to choose from. Regardless of other services available, such as wireless, DSL and cable broadband usually offer the best pricing and data packages for home use.
Verizon is the most widely available choice in Freeport. close to one hundred percent of Freeport census blocks can receive access to them. Viasat Internet is the most common second choice in the area, with coverage in practically one hundred percent of residents with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest plan we've seen for Viasat in Freeport is 35 Mbps.
The takeaway here is that Freeport's Internet infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US metro areas: wide coverage of cable and DSL, with the caveat that most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either type of Internet service. This pattern results from the fact that most Broadband service providers started as cable television and phone companies. So, they can use these pre-existing copper infrastructures to deliver their broadband Internet services. Fiber Internet is slowly growing as an alternative. While not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, practically one hundred percent of the area has access to fiber that reaches to a box near the property line.
