Overall, East Spencer's broadband infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other North Carolina towns and cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, with the problem being that most houses or apartments are stuck with a single provider for setting up either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern is normal because Internet providers started as TV and landline phone companies. So, they already own these pre-existing copper infrastructures for delivering broadband bundles.
