When we're looking at network tech installed within the city, we see that the most widespread wired broadband Internet technology types are Fiber (practically one hundred percent coverage) and Cable (close to one hundred percent coverage). Television providers are the main source for cable Internet service, since they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for Crescent residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber uses future-proofed fiber-optical lines made of thousands of glass strands that deliver binary data as light. Fiber outputs stronger speed and reliability, although it may switch over to coaxial cables in the "last mile" near subscribers. Coaxial last mile connections hamper performance, but they are almost always a grade higher than regular cable/DSL.

The broadband access stats here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are calculated from public government data and private data collected directly from providers, or through private third parties. Statistics regarding speed and performance data comes from M-Labs, which is the speed test tool integrated into our site as well as Google queries.
