Taking a look now at network technology installed in the city, the most frequently available wired broadband Internet tech options are Cable (99.28 percent coverage) and DSL (72.41 percent coverage). Traditional cable TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet service, because they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to Internet service. Tarentum-area customers of cable companies like XFINITY from Comcast often select it due to the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) DSL Internet service is transmitted over phone lines, and is sold by companies such as Verizon High Speed Internet that build or own copper phone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted copper construction seen in telephone lines has slightly less bandwidth compared to more modern techs like cable and several times less than fiber.
