The seaport city of Seattle is the largest in the Pacific Northwest. Thought to have been inhabited by Native Americans for around four-thousand years before the first Europeans arrived, it is a city that has a long and storied history. As time marched on, the city changed, eventually becoming home to such economic powerhouses such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Starbucks. They helped modernize the city and this can be seen in the city’s growing internet infrastructure.
Currently, there are five major players in the greater Seattle area. They are Xfinity, CenturyLink, Viasat, HughesNet, and WaveDivision Holdings. The ways these companies provide internet are as diverse as the companies themselves. Each uses some sort of combination of cable, fiber, DSL, satellite, or copper.
CenturyLink has the largest coverage in the area, covering over half the city and offering both DSL and fiber. The split between DSL and fiber is relatively equal
