When we're looking at network technology with significant infrastructure already built around the city, we see that the most widespread physical wire broadband connection infrastructures are Cable and Fiber, with 99.48% and 98.21% respectively. Cable is marketed by former television companies, using already-built TV network connections. Woodbury customers of cable ISPs like Optimum by Altice often select cable because of the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Fiber is composed of newer, more modern Fiber-optical cables made of dense glass or plastic strands that transmit digital data as light. Fiber Internet results in stronger download rates and reliability, but in some cases may switch over to older copper wiring in the "last mile" near subscribers. As a result, some fiber connections might not offer true "gigabit" speeds.

Data Cap Issues in Woodbury

Data from our market research team suggests that some of the common ISPs in Woodbury place some sort of limit on streaming on home broadband connections. Data caps are controversial since users see caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which can consume anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
