Television providers are usually the source for cable home Internet, seeing as they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber infrastructure is composed of newer Fiber-optical transmission lines, which are made of hair-like glass strands which send binary data as light. Fiber network technology offers stronger download rates and reliability, but sometimes switch to coaxial wiring in the "last mile" near subscribers.
