The data on this page comes from FCC coverage reports. Data is cross-validated using private databases to provide more accurate listings than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Information about speed and pricing of listed broadband plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.
When we're looking at network technologies with significant infrastructure built within the area, we see that the most frequently available hardwired broadband Internet tech options are Cable (98.78 percent coverage) and Fiber (97.70 percent coverage). Regular cable TV corporations are usually the source for cable Internet and Wifi service, seeing as they can use existing coaxial TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for Yorktown Heights residents because of the strong mix of speed and value. Fiber infrastructure is built on newer, more modern fiber-optic transmission lines made of dense glass or plastic strands which transmit Internet data as light. Fiber Internet results in stronger speeds and uptime, but sometimes switch to older copper cables in the "last mile" near subscribers. As a result, not all fiber connections offer "gigabit" performance.
Outside of the Internet options detailed above, Optimum by Altice provides a third option for Internet in 98 percent of Yorktown Heights.

Data Cap Issues Around Yorktown Heights
Data collected by our market research team shows that many of the popular providers place some sort of limit on data use for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because subscribers see them as a tactic to limit "cord cutting". Providers maintain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the culprit is streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hour.
