BroadbandNow includes every provider with business packages online, but keep in mind that consumer-focused companies might have unlisted business options as well.

Since the majority of buildings come pre-wired for one telephone company and cable networks don't generally overlap, the majority of Hampton residents have 2 wired broadband options to choose from. 16.23 percent of Hampton residents have one or fewer choices for their Internet service provider. DSL and cable broadband usually provide the best price for home use.

So, looking at the big picture, Hampton's broadband infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in Tennessee towns and cities: wide coverage for cable and DSL Internet service, but limited choice since most houses are stuck with a single option for either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Broadband Internet companies have their roots as TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use pre-existing copper networks to deliver their Internet service.
