Oak Park is an architecturally rich village. Many of the homes and commercial structures built prior to WWII are still in active use. The high population of artists give this expensive area lots of charm and character. Oak Park stands out from many other areas of the United States with a relatively large number of telecommute workers. A strong internet infrastructure makes this possible. On the personal side, Oak Park is home to many smart, sophisticated singles. They depend on their internet to keep them connected and help them find activities.
AT&T offers DSL to 99% of residents in Oak Park while Xfinity offers cable internet to that same percentage. Between the two providers 100% of Oak Park residents have access to high speed internet.
Businesses can get copper wire or DSL from Megapath in addition to the DSL and cable services offered to residents. Zayo Group is beginning to roll out fiber optic internet to businesses and this will likely grow.
