Regular cable TV providers are where customers look for cable Internet, because they can utilize pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Bridgeport customers of cable ISPs like XFINITY from Comcast usually pick it because of the reasonably low pricing for decent speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.) Fiber infrastructure is built on more modern fiber-optic cables, which are made of hair-like glass or plastic strands that can deliver digital data as light. Fiber Internet results in better downloads and reliability, but sometimes switch over to coaxial wiring in the "last mile" near a subscriber. Consequently, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" speeds.

Aside from home Internet, there are also 2 companies in the city selling enterprise and business/smb technologies such as T1 or custom fiber loops.
