What is cable internet?

Cable internet makes use of pre-existing cable television infrastructure to deliver high-speed internet to consumers, which is faster than DSL in most areas. Unlike satellite internet, cable is not affected by outages caused by storms. While cable cannot perform as fast as fiber-optic internet, cable providers offer much wider coverage than fiber at this time.
