Overall, Millwood's broadband situation follows a similar pattern to other New York metro areas: wide coverage of cable and DSL, but limited options since most houses are limited to a single option for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple cause. Broadband companies started as cable TV and telephone corporations, and use pre-existing copper wired networks on utility poles to deliver Internet services. Fiber service is growing as an alternative, and while some "Fiber" services aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 99.14 percent of the Millwood area has coverage by fiber Internet reaching at least as far as the block.

Data Cap Issues Around Millwood
Data collected by our researchers suggests that popular ISPs in the area place a limit on data use for their residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a strategy to stop streaming services. Providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the issue is video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
