In terms of network tech installed in the area, we see that the most prevalent wired Internet tech varieties are DSL and Cable, with 92.82% and 60.02% respectively. TV providers are usually the source for cable home Internet service, seeing as they can re-purpose their existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Local customers of cable ISPs such as Spectrum often select it because of the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to DSL at any rate.) Phone companies are the main source for DSL service, which makes technical sense because DSL transmits digital data via telephone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone lines has slightly less bandwidth than more modern techs like cable and fiber.
