TV providers are the main source for cable home Internet, since they can re-purpose existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to Internet service. Local customers of cable Internet service providers like Optimum by Altice often select it because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (Compared to DSL, anyway.) Fiber uses newer fiber-optic cables, which are composed of dense glass strands which can deliver Internet data using light. Fiber outputs stronger download rates, but in some cases may switch over to copper wires in the "last mile" near subscribers. As a result, not all fiber connections offer true "gigabit" speeds.
