Cable is sold by former cable television providers, leveraging already-built coaxial cable networks. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber is composed of future-proofed Fiber-optical transmission lines composed of hair-like glass strands which transmit digital data using light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to copper in the "last mile." Coaxial last mile connections slow speeds, but are almost always faster than regular cable/DSL.

The information listed here is sourced via FCC coverage reports, and is cross-validated through private databases and direct provider reporting to create more detailed resources than is available from government websites. Speed and pricing data is generated by our research and analysis team, who collect tens of thousands of data points every year.

Overall, the amount of Internet providers in Saint James isn't strong (2.62 providers available per census block). It isn't much, yet it's enough to drive competition on price and service quality, which is good for those who live in well-wired neighborhoods.
