West Sand Lake residences have an average of 2.97 providers available. This is a normal level of competition for the US, since the majority of companies that provide Internet used to be cable television and phone providers. Most addresses are wired for one of each.

Phone companies usually offer DSL connections, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," sends digital information over telephone lines.
