Regular cable TV companies are the main source for cable home Internet service, thanks to the fact that they can use existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Rockville Centre-area customers of cable providers like Optimum by Altice overwhelmingly select cable thanks to the reasonably low prices for decent speeds. (Compared to the alternatives, anyway.) Fiber is composed of future-proofed fiber-optic lines made of dense glass or plastic strands which deliver digital data as light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to to copper connections in the "last mile." As a result, some fiber connections might not offer "gigabit" speeds.
