The data listed here comes from FCC coverage reports specific to Sutherland. Coverage data is confirmed through privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to output more accurate listings than is available from government websites. Information about pricing and speed of current broadband plans is generated by our research and analysis division, who collect thousands of plans annually. There are a total of 214 plans collected in Sutherland since 2014, with 33 Internet plans currently on the market in the area.

Looking at network technologies with significant infrastructure built within the city, we see that the most frequently available wired broadband Internet connection types are Cable (65.62 percent coverage) and DSL (50.45 percent coverage). Cable connections are sold by former television operators, using their existing coaxial cable networks. Local customers of cable ISPs like XFINITY from Comcast overwhelmingly select cable thanks to the combination of low prices for workable speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.) DSL is transmitted over phone lines, and comes from companies like Verizon High Speed Internet that own phone lines. The twisted and bundled copper makeup of telephone wires provides slightly less bandwidth compared to cable and several times less than fiber.

Aside from the Internet options detailed above, XFINITY from Comcast provides a third choice for Internet in 65 percent of Sutherland.
