Internet Access in Wellsville, Pennsylvania
Wellsville residences have an average of 2.8 providers to choose from. This is common amount of options for the US, since most Internet providers used to be cable TV and telephone providers. Most houses are wired for one of each.
Taking a look at network technologies available across the city, the most prevalent wired broadband tech varieties are Cable (69.12 percent coverage) and DSL (41.39 percent coverage). TV corporations are the main source for cable Internet, because they can use pre-existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Wellsville subscribers to cable service providers such as XFINITY from Comcast often select it due to the reasonably low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) DSL is transmitted by telephone wires up on utility poles by corporations such as Verizon High Speed Internet that own copper phone wires. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted copper bundle makeup seen in telephone wires results in slightly less bandwidth compared to cable and fiber.
