Fiber Internet is delivered to users’ homes via fiber optic cables and is the fastest broadband Internet currently available, reaching speeds of up to 1 Gig with almost no latency. It uses light signals to send data back and forth. It is much, much faster and more reliable than DSL, cable and satellite Internet.
Cable Internet utilizes cable television infrastructure to provide high-speed Internet to homes. Cable Internet speeds range from 10 – 500 Mbps. It’s a great option for any household that needs fast Internet service but doesn’t need gigabit speeds. It’s also a good option for homes that lack telephone lines.
Satellite Internet is a type of Internet that utilizes satellite signals captured by a satellite dish to provide users with Internet. In many rural areas, satellite Internet is either the only option or the best option. Satellite Internet speeds range from 25 to 150 Mbps, which is not ideal for gaming or multiple users or devices.
DSL, or a Digital Subscriber Line, is a broadband Internet connection that utilizes an existing telephone network and connects through a wall phone jack. A DSL Internet connection travels over the telephone line but via a different frequency. It provides Internet speeds between 25 – 500 Mbps.
