Advantages of cable Internet

Cable Internet has many advantages over other types of Internet service. Advantages include:


Traditional dial-up modems provide Internet access through a telephone line at up to 56 Kbps (kilobytes per second). A cable modem gives you access to high-speed Internet through your cable television network beginning at 512 Kbps but can reach speeds of more than 2 Mbps (Megabytes per second). That said, cable Internet service is considerably faster than dial-up service and is usually faster than DSL, too.


Unlike dial-up, cable Internet service is always on. Therefore, you do not have to wait to establish an Internet connection. You can simply open your Internet browser and begin surfing the Web.


Because it does nottilize your telephone line, cable Internet service is much more likely to stay connected than dial-up service. Most cable ISP users experience little problems with staying online using a cable modem.
