Looking at network tech available within Truxton, we see that the most frequently available hardwired broadband Internet technology infrastructures are Cable (72.45 percent coverage) and DSL (82.70 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV companies are usually the source for cable Internet service, since they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Truxton-area customers of cable companies such as Spectrum often select it thanks to the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) DSL Internet service is transmitted by twisted copper telephone wires, and is sold by service providers such as Frontier Communications that historically provided phone service. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted and bundled copper makeup seen in phone lines results in lower performance than more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.
Frontier Communications provides an alternative to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet), serving Truxton with a maximum speed of 24 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only way to get Internet in Truxton. fixed wireless companies such as T-Mobile Home Internet can deliver 25 Mbps using direct wireless technology.
