To summarize, New Rockford's Internet market follows a common pattern in US cities: wide availability of cable and DSL Internet service, with the problem being that most houses are stuck with one company for subscribing to either service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact that Internet companies are former cable TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use these legacy networks to deliver broadband Internet services. Fiber Internet has been slowly expanding as a third option. While some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, close to one hundred percent of the New Rockford area is covered by fiber that reaches as far as the block.
