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.

Optimum is the worst service provider. They have the worst costumer service and make it so hard to get in touch with someone.
