We are big fans of their National Broadband Map as it very clearly shows the disparity of offerings throughout the Tri-State area, and the whole country. The different colors in the map below show how many providers are offered.
In the screenshot below, the Orange area shows one provider available, Yellow has two and Green has three. Those in Purple regions have no options for internet service.
