To summarize, Charlestown's broadband infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US metro areas: wide access to cable and DSL, with the catch that most residences are limited to one option for subscribing to either type of service. This pattern has a simple reason. Internet outfits have their roots as television and telephone corporations. So, they use these existing wired networks on utility poles to deliver broadband service. Fiber network access has been growing as an alternative, and while not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 97.66 percent of the area has access to fiber reaching to the street outside.
