Traditional cable TV providers are the main source for cable home Internet service, thanks to the fact that they can utilize their pre-existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber uses newer, more modern fiber-optic lines, which are made of thousands of glass or plastic strands which can transmit binary data as light. Not all "Fiber" connections reach the subscriber address, however. Some switch to coaxial cables once in the "last mile."
