Plexicomm is another alternative wireless service worth taking note of to 67 percent of Windsor, although it needs roof access and proximity to a Plexicomm access point.

Overall, Windsor's broadband infrastructure follows a common pattern in US communities: wide availability of cable and DSL, except that the majority of houses are limited to one company for setting up either Internet service. This pattern is normal because Internet providers are former cable TV and landline telephone companies. So, they can use already connected networks on telephone poles to deliver their broadband Internet service. Fiber Internet has been expanding as an alternative. While some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 69.41 percent of the population has access to fiber reaching at least as far as the building property.
