Taking a look at network technology in use in Meadow Lands, we see that the most common hardwired broadband Internet tech varieties are Cable (97.94 percent coverage) and DSL (77.49 percent coverage). Cable internet connections are sold by residential television providers, leveraging their existing TV network connections. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone companies are the main source for DSL service, since DSL, or "Digital Subscriber Line," transmits Internet data via phone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted and bundled copper makeup of telephone lines results in a lower bandwidth ceiling than cable and fiber.

Since many houses are only wired for one telephone (DSL) provider and one cable provider, the majority of Meadow Lands households have 2 wired broadband service providers to choose from. 24.57% of the Meadow Lands area — 100 people — are limited to one or fewer choices for their Internet provider. Regardless of alternative technologies on the market, such as wireless, DSL and cable broadband services are likely to offer the best price for home use.

According to the latest FCC filings and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the strongest providers in Meadow Lands so far as coverage area. As the maps below show, the more common providers often compete at addresses around Meadow Lands.
