This pattern results from the fact that most Internet providers started as cable television and telephone companies.

While not all "Fiber" plans are "Fiber to the Home" connections, 98.61 percent of the population has access to fiber stretching to the building property.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Soddy Daisy
Is there even another option to consider?
EPB is hands down the only service worth considering. I've been a customer since I moved here, and they have always been the most reliable, fairly priced, fastest, and had the best customer service I've experienced. Before I bought a house here I was locked with my previous ISP at the apartment I was in, it literally doesn't even hold a candle to the overall experience EPB has provided me.
