Taking a look now at network technology in use around the Lake Grove area, we see that the most common wired Internet tech infrastructures are Fiber (95.14 percent coverage) and Cable (98.17 percent coverage). Cable is sold by residential television corporations, who use already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Cable can often make sense for Lake Grove residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Fiber uses more modern Fiber-optical lines composed of dense glass or plastic strands which transmit binary data as light. Some fiber connections switch to to copper cables once in the "last mile." Copper-based last mile connections slow speeds, but they are almost always faster than cable/DSL.

So far as coverage options, the average Lake Grove building has 3-4 providers serving their address. Still, 1.91 percent of Lake Grove residents have one or fewer options for residential broadband.

The data listed here is primarily sourced from FCC filings, and is confirmed using privatized data sources to output more granular results than governmental websites. Speed and pricing data is generated by manually collecting tens of thousands of data points each year.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, with coverage for close to one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available to practically one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed recorded for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. As a rule, any speed over 10 megabits per second (Mbps) is sufficient to view lower-quality videos over WiFi. However, it may become problematic for large households or high-bandwidth services like video chat and multiplayer gaming.
