Considering network technology being used around Solen, the most widespread physical wire broadband technology varieties are Satellite and Fiber, with close to one hundred percent and 98.99% respectively. Fiber uses newer fiber-optic transmission lines, which are composed of dense glass strands which deliver binary data as light. Fiber results in stronger download rates and reliability, although it may switch to slower copper cables in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Copper-based last mile connections downgrade performance, but are almost always a grade higher than regular cable/DSL.
