The Cape boasts a robust communications infrastructure, including CenturyLink, a 100% fiber optic SONET ring and Comcast Cable. By one analysis, Cape Coral has broadband capacity several times greater than that of larger Florida cities. Survivable, underground fiber interconnectivity is in place at the City Centrum. The city was among the first in Florida to deploy the new 4.9 GHz pre-WiMax wireless channel authorized by the FCC. In the 2016 Digital Cities Survey published by the Center for Digital Government, Cape Coral ranked third place nationwide as one of the most technology-advanced cities for its size in the U.S.
