In terms of network tech available in the city, we see that the most prevalent wired broadband Internet tech varieties are Cable and DSL, with virtually one hundred percent and 97.83% respectively. TV corporations are the main source for cable home Internet service, since they can re-purpose existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for Warren residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. DSL is transmitted via telephone wires, and comes from service providers like Verizon High Speed Internet that historically provided phone service. DSL underperforms when compared with all other major wired broadband options except dial-up.

i3 Broadband provides an alternative, serving Warren with close to one hundred percent local availability and a top speed of 1,000 Mbps.

Since most buildings are only wired for one phone (DSL) provider and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Warren residents have 2 wired Internet options to choose from (2.98 per census block specifically). DSL and cable broadband services usually offer the best pricing for home use.
