Broadband in Connecticut
Connecticut boasts an impressive ninety-nine percent broadband connectivity, the second-best in the United States. Since 2010, government funding has played a pivotal role in improving the availability of wired internet through the Connecticut State Broadband initiative, getting over three and a half million dollars in federal grants. Broadband infrastructure projects in the state received over 90 million dollars in state funding over the same period. Even with 86 service providers available, over a quarter-million users still have access to a single service provider, so monopoly remains a concern in some regions in the state.
