It's no coincidence that it's a college town and also has a high percentage of artists living there. A large percentage of Ithaca residents have advanced degrees, mainly in science fields. Despite this, it's considered a low income area with nearly 45% of the population living at or below the federal poverty line. Adding to the diversity of the area, more than 17% of Ithaca residents were born outside the United States. 100% of Ithaca residents have access to high-speed internet.
Cable internet is provided to 100% of homes by Time Warner Spectrum, who is the sole supplier of the service in the area. Verizon FiOS offers DSL to 96% of homes and has a monopoly on that service. They also provide fiber optics to 1% of residents south of Cayuga Lake.
