TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet, since they can re-purpose their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for Magnolia residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL connections, which makes technical sense because DSL sends data via telephone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone wires has lower speeds and bandwidth compared to cable and fiber.

Data Cap Issues in Magnolia
Data from our researchers suggests that many of the common providers in the area currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because subscribers see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
