In summary, Redmond's Internet infrastructure conforms with a pattern seen in many US towns and cities: wide access to cable and DSL, but limited choice since most houses are stuck with a single company for either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern is normal because Broadband Internet outfits were started pre-Internet as TV and landline phone companies. So, they already own these conveniently pre-built wired infrastructures to deliver broadband services. Fiber is expanding as a third option. While not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 58.72 percent of the area has coverage by fiber Internet that reaches to the street outside.

Data Cap Issues in Redmond
Data from our research team suggests that common providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use on residential broadband plans. Data caps are disliked because consumers see caps as a strategy to discourage "cord cutting", while providers explain they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which easily uses anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
