In terms of network technologies with significant infrastructure already built within the city, the most frequently available wired broadband technology varieties are Cable and DSL, with 86.54% and 79.61% respectively. Cable connections are marketed by residential television operators, using their preexisting coaxial cable networks. Wassaic-area subscribers to cable Internet service providers such as Optimum by Altice usually select cable because of the combination of low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Telephone providers are the main source for DSL connections, because DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits data packets over phone wires.
